Rating Our Friends: Part Deux

And now, for what has been long overdue, here is our second installment of making fun of our friends after their selfless hospitality. In all honesty, our travels could not have been the same without the following individuals.

Stu and Erica Michie
Kids: Monte and Asterid
Seattle, Washington

Why Rhonda Will Be Returning:
Their son is named after Monte Coleman (the greatest linebacker in Redskins history)
Greatest fajitas on earth
Best sushi recommendation
MVC: Most Valuable Couch
Kids are super funny

Room for Improvement:
Fire alarms going off for no apparent reason
You may get cut if you beat Monte at Bey Blades
Basement so warm and cozy it made it difficult to venture out to explore Seattle (when the weather was gorgeous no less)

It was tough to find areas of improvement for the Michie clan. Great hosts, endless cable channels, cute kids, and fajitas we still dream about…Forget the Space needle, the Michie house is the place to be.

Zach and Tori Allera
Kids: TBD
Pets: None
San Francisco, CA

Why Rhonda Will Be Returning:
Will not hesitate to take the Rhonda reigns during a desperate situation (to be addressed in a later blog post)
Exceptional air mattress accommodations
Tori is a good dumper
Amazing frozen pizzas!

Room for Improvement:
Live in a neighborhood that doesn’t appreciate an RV parked for a week straight
No egg drop soup at local Chinese restaurants
Zach and Toris’ sense of responsibility (their work schedules interrupted quality time w Brett and Vanessa)

It’s difficult to not want to stay with the Allera’s FOR-EV-ER. They are a ton of fun to hang with and they shouldn’t be surprised if we somehow unexpectedly show up on their doorstep.

The amazing Golden Gate Bridge.

Aaron and Krista Moatz
Kids: Nate and Miles
Pets: None
San Fransisco, CA

Why Rhonda Will Be Returning:
Greatest trick or treating streets in all of the land
Comfy ass couches
Life Cereal (Brett had not eaten that in a long time)
Most compassionate 3 year old on the planet
Great beer selection

Room for Improvement:
Real house under renovation so had to sleep in a rental
Forced to use our own blankets

These two hardworking and fun people are so nice and accommodating that it’s easy to start the planning for our next trip to the Moatz house.

Leron Baum
Kids: Not that he knows of
Pets: None
Park City, UT (The West Gate at the Canyons Resort)

Why Rhonda Decided to Stay:
Nonstop shuttle service makes you feel like a freaking movie star with a private car.
3 different pools including a relaxation pool with a phenomenal water fall
The Wire Season 1
Amazing views

Room for Improvement:
Can’t comfortably sleep on couches for fear of throw-up
No ESPN2 or AMC
Crappy, crappy internet connection
Nonexistent recycling program

Downtown Leroy Baum outdid himself by letting our homeless asses crash at his place at The Westgate.
He was also the reason we came to Park City because he put the idea in our heads. If you can work a trip to Park City, you must crash at the Westgate.
