Bounty of Riches March 15, 2012

Posted by clintcarter in Beets.

Carey and I took a road trip to Wichita, Kansas this week hoping to collect a bounty of Chick-Fil-A riches.  A new store was opening which means we had a chance to be apart of the First 100 (camping in the parking lot for 24 hours and getting a years worth of free Chick-Fil-A).

We arrived at 5:40 Wednesday morning for the raffle.  There were about 150 people present.  After waiting in line for an hour BOTH of our numbers were called!  With much rejoicing we unpacked our gear from the car and set up our temporary home.

The day was fairly uneventful.  This was Carey’s fourth rodeo and my third, as seasoned veterans we knew what to expect.  The weather was great – highs in the 70’s, a little windy but never cold.  The most difficult part of the experience was smelling the hot doughnuts from the Krispy Kreme store across the street – yet not being able to have any.

After the dance party (of which I was only an observer) and getting to catch up with a friend who lives in Wichita, it was time to watch some Raising Hope on Netflix and head to bed.  The highlight of the trip was the futon mattress that I brought to sleep on – it made the concrete much more bearable.

Woke up for the 5:30 a.m. roll call, got our gift certificates, packed up the tent and headed home.  But not before stopping to enjoy Krispy Kreme.  Made it home by 9:30 a.m.  I feel like a zombie today, but there’s a little box full of Chick-Fil-A riches that is now in my possession.  I know you’ve seen it before, but here for your enjoyment once again – Tim Hawkins
