First off, let me just say that the vacation was great overall. Lots of great rides, great time with Sam, and just a lot of fun! We visited 7 different amusement parks in about 9 days: Cedar Point, Kennywood, Knobels, Lakemont, Hersheypark, Six Flags Great Adventure, and Coney Island. That’s traveling from Ohio to New York for those of you keeping track. It was exhausting, but we both live for this kind of stuff. They were all great, but we especially loved Knobels. It’s in the middle of nowhere in Pennsylvania, but it’s very worth it. Great park.
So much traveling kept us pretty tired, but there was definitely a fun evening when, after a long day in a very hot & humid park, we went back to the hotel, and I worshiped his feet on the floor while he did computer work. It was pretty hot being his footstool for his smelly feet (they usually don’t smell much, so it was a real treat), and I came pretty fast. Even though there was no bondage, it was pretty hot to just suck, kiss, and inhale stinky feet. 😉
That said, there were a lot of things that could have easily made this trip pretty miserable if we were not made of hearty stuff. Fortunately, we both have a great sense of humor, and can let many irritating things wash over us. Let’s recount the bad stuff.
First, when we get to the airport, we discover our flight is delayed–by five hours. We were supposed to leave at 7:00 am (we were at the airport by 5:30am), and now were finding out we weren’t leaving until noon. After much complaining, we get rescheduled on another airline without too much of a delay.
We get to the first hotel. They tell us a water heater is out, and there is no hot water, but it should be fixed in the morning. Irritating, but at least we were told, and didn’t have to find out the hard way. Unfortunately, the room had a musty smell, the sink didn’t drain, there was a substantial wet spot on the floor, and there wasn’t hot water by morning. Since we were going to stay there for two nights, we yet again had to complain, and they moved us to another room which, while not great (did I mention the rooms were really ugly?), was at least functional. Fortunately, the hot water was back by then (it turns out another guest thought it would be funny to blow out the pilot light. Ha ha).
Then, after about two days, Sam starting having fairly incessant tooth pain. It was getting bad enough that I thought he should find a dentist. However, he didn’t have his insurance information with him, so he had to call his work office to get it. By the time we got to a dentist, we were told he would need a root canal. So that’s how that day was spent. How is this for a vacation so far?
Fortunately, that did cure him, and it was much better after, so I felt it was worth it. The rest of the trip went as planned, until our return flight home. When we went to check in, we had been told that we had been bumped off the flight. Huh? Apparently, when we were re-routed at the beginning of our trip, we (obviously) missed our original scheduled flight. And it seems that their computers, if you miss a flight, will automatically cancel the rest of your planned trip (even when it was one of their own representatives that reroute). Isn’t that nice? So we had to go stand by, and if there wasn’t enough space, well, there wasn’t another flight until the next morning. Not exactly what you want to hear.
Well, despite my glum outlook, a miracle happened, and we did happen to make the stand by flight, so it turned out okay. Sometimes, it’s the unplanned things that make a vacation exciting.
In two days, I’m off again, but this time it’s work related. I’ll be back middle of next week.
By the way, if you haven’t heard yet, there’s a great new website up called www.feet.tv. It’s sort of a YouTube for foot fetishists, and catering to gay men. Yours truly has uploaded his videos there, so if you can’t do the download on my site, visit there. I think it’s a great idea, so go support it!
