Got Home from a few days away to be greeted with a Card from my wife and daughter. It's a series of cards actually:

Card 1
-------
For your birthday, we thought you could use a little adventure.

Card 2
-------
We decided you should spice up your life a little by.....

Card 3
-------
Actually, it wouldnt be much of an adventure if we told you...

Card 4
-------
So instead, you need to follow the instructions guide enclosed.

Card 5
-------
Instruction guide:

WARNING: Any deviation from the specific instructions listed below could result in an adventure gone wrong!

1) On Friday, March 4th at 9:00am sharp you must meet your guides at the front door. Your attire should be comfortable and weather appropriate. You MUST be wearing a baseball cap. This item MUST be worn backwards.

2) This adventure has a duration of 3 days and you will arrive back at your original departure point on Monday March 7th at 5:30pm. Therefore we would like to suggest that you tie up any business matters you may need to attend to at this time.
although a laptop is permitted if you so desire, you will need to consult with your guides as to when it is appropriate to use. Thank you in advance for your co-operation in this matter.

3) Please make sure that you have your glasses and you wallet on your person when you meet your guides. You will be forfeiting these items upon departure. They will be returned when required.

Although you may want to ask questions of your wife or your daughter you will find this futile. No matter how many time you may find yourself saying "Ok now, I'm serious", or making the "eyebrow" face, they will not be helpful and have been sworn to secrecy.

Ok, so what the hell are these girls up too?

Truely a motorheads dream, pmac.

The only thing better would be your very own to drive home?

I had Evasive/Defensive driving courses many years ago, so I have just a twinge of the excitement you surely must have felt.

Bravo! to your family. :)

Now that is flat cool! Happy Birthday pmac, your ladies seem to have had it ALL together! Poor doggie though, stuck in kenneland....

And what did the girls get up to at PointSouth while you were driving? Day spa and makeover? Tennis? Horseback riding?

What a nice fun wonderful fantasy-tastical birthday present!

That sounds fantastic! :D You lucky thing... and now you'll have an inferiority complex about every birthday present you buy again, unless it includes a trip to Europe or something... lol

I "know" that resort. Well, "know" is too much said.

I had to endure a 30min powerpoint/multimedia presentation. A big international widget manufacturer sent their "Million Dollar Club" sales people for an extended weekend with family last year, and they made the presentation in order to incite the whole sales staff to increase their sales. The only problem is that this Millin Dollar Club always consists of the "usual suspects" with barely any change ever, and that the whole sales team got rather bored knowing they'll never be able to get there...

Nevertheless it seems to be a very nice resort. Congratulations again!

It sounds like your family know you inside out, pmac. I love the thought process and detail that went in to 'tricking you' all the way down the line.

It's obvious that with all the time, trouble and care they've gone to, you sure are loved!

Brilliant!

Fun stuff, Pmac! Some of the most fun I've had has been on a motorcycle on a racetrack. I can imagine that a car would be almost as fun. ;)

Way to go, Pmac's family!

Wow, that sounds like soooo much fun.

That's much better than getting neutered. :)
