But let's talk about summer, mmmkay? The weather has been wacky and I'm pretty sure summer will be here before we know it. With that said, I really wanted to go to the driving range last night. Golf bores the shit out of me, but I love to go to the driving range and smack the fuck out of some golf balls.
The place was open for the season, but they were closed because I swear.to.God. the sun completely set within the five minutes it took me to drive from my house to get there.
I went for a drive instead and thought of some of the things I love to do during the summer...
1. Go to the drive-ins.
Do you have a drive in theater near you? No? Come visit me and we'll go. I take my father's truck and sit in the bed of it with camping chairs. #SorryImNotSorry that the cars behind me can't see #NotMyProblem. Last summer I went to the drive-ins probably 10 times. Needless to say there was a LOT of Bravo shows filling up my DVR because I was too busy watching movies outside.
I live about 15 minutes away from Saratoga Springs, NY. If you don't know what that means, I'll fill ya in. Saratoga is known for its race track. Every summer, from the end of July to the beginning of September, Saratoga fills up with rich douchebags who drop BONES on horses.
I tend to stay away from the flat track, but I love going to Saratoga Gaming and Raceway to watch the horses run on the harness track. They run at night, which is my favorite part. I rarely bet on them, I have better luck with lottery tickets, but I love to grab a beer (shocking) and sit outside at night and watch them. Sometimes I yell obnoxious things like, "Did you see that fucking six horse???"
SN: Watch this video and you'll understand why I say Sarrr-raaa-toee-ggaaa. They haven't changed that commercial since like...1982.
3. Go to amusement parks.
I consider myself to be spoiled. The Great Escape is 45 minutes away, Six Flags New England is 1 hour and 45 minutes away, Six Flags Great Adventure is a little less than 4 hours away, and Darien Lake Theme Park and Resort is a little less than 5 hours away.
Two summers ago I went to Six Flags Great Adventure in NJ and went on all of the roller coasters besides the Kingda Ka. It kept randomly shutting down and I was too nervous it would break down with me on it. This year, Sam and I are going back, and we're committed to going on it.
Here's a picture I took of it as we were leaving:
|I'm pretty sure you can see it from the moon. It's the tallest roller coaster in the world, and the fastest in North America.|
Another SN: Watch this video. I almost pooped just watching it.
What do you like to do during the summer?
