Wildman Paul's escape to Orlando

So last night Paul drops in for a visit. During the visit he casually mentions that he wants to take an extended vacation in Orlando. He's giving up the highest paying job he can get at this point in his life and the cheapest decent apartment-in-a-house available in State College (a 3 minute walk from work) for what? Does he have a plan? None that he wants to share. He simply wants to drive down there with several friends and BE THERE.

On the bright side, at least this time he told us he was escaping State College. Last time he just left for London without a word. I'm grateful for the improvement in communication, however incomplete it still might be.

Wow, that's pretty crazy. It takes guts though, gotta hand that to him. But still, slightly insane.

Orlando...
MAN! giving up the job and the apartment seem like poor decisions but, I'm not in his situation so I really don't know what to think. I agree that at least he let you know this time. Are his friends in Orlando living there or vacationing?

Re: Orlando...
The description of his arrangements was typically vague. I'm not sure I remember exactly what he said, but it's something like, there's a girl from Orlando who is currently in State College for a while and knows some people that Paul knows. She told them there's a place they can stay if they want to go down there. It's a suburb rather than the city itself. That's it. Strange, huh?

Re: Orlando...
"Strange" is a good decription. 20 years ago, I would have said, "Cool"! Today, I say, "strange"...
