Ships Ahoy!

This is the true story of 14 friends, paying to rent a houseboat for one weekend on Lake Ouachita. Find out what happens when people stop being polite ... and start to party!!

I'm so excited — our vacation is finally here. My last vacation was with my family and absolutely horrible. I love my family, but I was a sour grape at that point in time. That was in July 2008. Here we are August 2009, and I'm desperate for some time off.

At 5:30 this evening, half of our group will pull out of Shreveport and head north for Hot Springs for an evening of wining, dining and (fingers crossed) karaoke. The pre-party group includes LJ and Marcus (the to-be Taylors), Lauren and Jonathan (The Smiths) and myself and Ty (I do not have a cute nickname for us ... yet).

The rest of the group will meet up with us in the morning and around 1 p.m. we'll load our six bedroom floating party. It may sound boring to some folks to just sit on a boat for a weekend. However, we're bringing along two ski boats and two jet skis. There's not going to be a dull moment when you factor in the hot tub on the roof and the slide coming off the back of the boat. There's also the possibility we'll have a karaoke machine on board.

Mostly, I'm looking forward to a weekend away. So long — no blog tomorrow or Monday, but I'll be back with big news on Tuesday.

Catherine, I got a big noodle. Apparently they don't make rafts for adults these days.

Thanks Mel!
