    yup....two potty breaks.

    I playfully consider myself a professional at this, lol. While everyone else was lined up at Walmart and the gas stations, I went to the local park for my potty breaks. The gas station up the road from the park had a line out the door to use the single bathroom, while I had four stalls all to myself. I also carry my own bags, sunblock, water and a hat. I pack a portable lunch instead of stopping to eat at a fast food joint like everyone else. Instead of fighting the traffic for a spot right in front of the sales, I park around the corner and walk.

    At one point, I looked up and realized I was over a mile away from where my car was parked. lol

    Anyone wants to join me can, I do this pretty much every Saturday for the summer, as long as I can find a town that is holding one within driving distance.
