It’s been kind of a long time since I’ve been on a legitimate family vacation. The last one I can remember is when we went to Yellowstone, which was all the way back in 2013. Sometime around then. Our family split up in 2015, so it had to have been before then. I like to travel, as long as I’m with someone who knows what they’re doing. I would never go to California just to explore and have fun, unless I knew exactly where I was or where I was going. Fortunately, I’m a great planner. My mom’s actually a really good person to go on vacations with because she goes on so many business trips that she’s super accustomed to travel. My buddy in Reno also gets to travel lots of places, because his successful reno chiropractor business brings in so much cash flow.
If I move back to Reno, then I’ll probably have to fly alone by myself which will make me super nervous. Over the course of my life, I’ve only really been on a few trips to places that I’ve never been before. We used to go camping a lot, but it was places that we had already been to before like Tahoe. One of the earliest vacations I can remember is when I went to Legoland with my grandparents. That was a long time ago, almost 10 years. I was 8 at the time. I had fun on the trip, but it wasn’t purely about the amusement park. We were primarily there to visit my grandpa’s sisters in San Diego. I don’t remember a ton about the trip, but I do remember that I didn’t have any meltdowns. Not like that’s an achievement or anything.
One thing I remember that stood out to me was this video game room they had where there was just a bunch of TVs and consoles with video games and anybody could just walk in and play a game. I didn’t understand why they did that, because from my experience the public will always ruin a public video game. At McDonald’s they used to have Nintendo 64 stations, but the buttons would always get smashed or the joysticks would somehow get removed.
