Between 1984 and 1987, I went over 2,000 times, in a four year period. And I wasn't living on PIB. However this doesn't include the 50 or so times each year between 1969 and 1984. After 1987 I lived on PIB on and off for 10 years, some times year around, some times not. And now I go about 30-40 times a year...sometimes 3 or 4 times in a single day. But I might not stay long, however at times I stay for days. I've already been three times since the beginning of the year...a slow start so far. Normally I would have 6 or 7 times in by now...darn ice. I can't afford to fly at 84 bucks round trip.
My secret for 2,000 trips in a 4 year period is that I flew to the highschool from NBI to PIB everyday, plus went a lot on top of that---sometimes you just need an ice cream cone or a pizza..or a party. None of which are easy to come by on NBI. Well there is always a party going on over there, but not much in the way of anything else.
In June I will celebrate 20 years since I graduated from PIB Highschool and I'm not a day over 17...in my mind. Oh lord it just occured to me I'm 17 going on over the hill...when and how did that happen?
