Biggest Sandwich You'll Ever Have

This is the time that I went to to Des Moines and attempted to eat this behemoth of a sandwich. Smashed in between two buns is a pork tenderloin, buffalo chicken tenders, white cheddar sauce, fried cheese cubes, Texas brisket, apple wood smoked bacon, and a cheese burger oh and a pound of waffle fries. All of this food and you have to finish all of this in fifteen minutes. This is a crazy amount of food for how little time you have, you have to eat so fast your body can't recognize the amount of food it has taken in. Sadly I can't say I finished this challenge...I did eat a good amount of it though. Also if you don't want to eat this behemoth of a sandwich Jethro's is a great college town type restaurant for a couple buddies or if your visiting a brother or sister in college this a great place to go.

Want to meet your favorite actors?

Madame Tussaud is a wax museum located in central London and New York  . Now I know what you are thinking a wax museum creepy right.  But that is not the case some of these wax sculptures are the most realistic looking sculptures I have ever seen. I would go with your families because it is a chance for you to meet your favorite actors (not really but you know what I mean).  There also a marvel section of the museum in witch all of the avengers and spider-man are I took a pose with spider-man i loved it and within that  section there is a dome theater in which the play a short 4D movie about the marvel heroes. The seats vibrate water gets sprayed at you and a blast of wind hits you in the face all while the characters  are jumping out of the screen. My mother enjoyed taking pictures with quite a few of her favorite actors. There is even a whole section for Bollywood actors

A Slice of Southern Heaven in the Frozen North 

Roost Fried Chicken

This has to be one of the best places I have ever ate at.  Roost offers some of the best southern comfort food that I've ever had. It offers a little slice of southern heaven in the far north. Some of the best chicken and waffles, any side you get with your chicken is absolutely fantastic. The atmosphere of the restaurant is great as well, it is somewhat small inside but has a lot a outside picnic area to sit. This place is more locally known this most likely won't show up if you look up where to eat in Bozeman. I would recommend this to anyone traveling anywhere near the Bozeman area with friends or family, one of the best places you will eat in your lifetime. Good prices, Great food, and fantastic atmosphere.

Starved Rock State Park

Located at 2668 E 875th Rd, Oglesby, IL 61348. Starved rock state park is a series of waterfalls on a 2-5 mile trail with inclines and drops. I went with my family for a get together. It was really fun, the most fun I have had in a while this is more geared toward families with young children but that does not mean a group of friends cant go to this either.. We walked to the first canyon ( picture above) the water wasn't running when we went but there were plenty of others that were. However we still figured out how to have fun. In the picture above there is a cave about ten feet up to the right of the waterfall. Including myself everyone who was there tried to get up there none of us could. After we carved our name in all of the canyons we went to. I also learned some interesting history. The history of this state park is that there were two Native american tribes who were fighting. One tribe attacked the other and scared them up the hill so the attacking tribe camped at the base of the hill and the other tribe ended starving to death on the top of the hill.

The Great Falls of Montana

Palisades Falls

Palisades Falls is a short half mile hike all on a paved trail to this fantastic waterfall. I took this hike with my family, it was a short easy hike that anybody could do. The trail is mostly shaded and usually very comfortable. Once you get to the base you can go all the way up the the bottom of the waterfall. If you are more adventurous to the left of the waterfall you could rock climb straight up to the top of the waterfall and look down. If you want to take a trip to Montana I would say that you have to go to Palisades Falls. Palisades Falls is in the Hyalite Canyon which is a great place with many trails to hike. Hyalite Canyon has a lot of scenic views and more trail that offer a bit more of a challenge to the avid hiker.

Didn't Know People Did that with Glass....

Chihuly gardens is an art exhibit in which the main artists Dale Chihuly is a glass sculptor. It is located directly beneath the space needle in Seattle,Washington. He makes the greatest glass sculptures ever that I have seen. Some are over 10 ft tall. They are in the floor and on the ceiling . They are outside. In Dale's own words he said that this is a culmination of the best pieces that he has made. When I went it was so so cool I have never seen art on such a grand scale and so many different colors. I loved it and I'm not an art guy but this was cool. My parents loved it. I'm sure you and your families will love it. 

"M" Trail

"M" Trail
This hike is a short, easy, and scenic hike it would be a good start for the trip. If you thinking about traveling Bozeman, MT should definitely be on your mind. It is a beautiful place with many things to do, you will never be bored in this town. I've been there many times and have always have something to do. When I was there I did this hike at the bottom of it you can take two different paths the switchback path and the steeper straight up path. I've done them both and both of them are easy and could be done by most people. It is a very scenic hike and when you reach the top you can look over the whole town. If you go hike right at sunset you can get to the top and see views like you see at the right. The hike isn't strenuous at all and its some good exercise for the start or end of your day. Get a couple friends and hike for a bit, you'll have a fun time.

European thrills

Thorpe park is an amusement park located between the towns of Chertsey and Stains, Surrey England, UK. They include some of the fastest rides I have ever been on. To ride all the rides you have to be a four and a half feet tall. So you don't need to be too worried about your child's height there are good roller coasters for all heights. The staff at Thorpe Park are so nice. They have 3 water rides and 9 thrill roller coasters 90% of which include fast pass. The best thrill roller coaster in my opinion would have to be Nemesis Inferno. In this ride you are strapped in with your legs dangling so it is not recommended to wear sandals. With a top speed of forty-eight miles per hour with two corkscrew and a vertical loop and zero g roll . It is my favorite roller coaster at the park. It is really fun and awesome. I Screamed and laughed the whole time. So if you are going to England for a trip with your friends I would highly recommend you going to thorpe park.

Spelunking Adventure 

The Maquoketa Caves are some of the most fun you will ever have. There is much more to do than just go caving, you can go hiking, or stay the night and camp also the Park Rangers are friendly and helpful. The best is that it is for all ages when I was there I saw people from six years old to sixty years old. If you get a couple friends and go up there for the day it is a great trip. Some of the most fun I've ever had, the caves go on forever there is always a way to go further. Make sure you wear clothes that are old and you don't care about. There is just around twenty marked caves that you can go exploring in but hundreds of unmarked caves to adventure in. I went up there with a couple friends and we stayed the whole day exploring the caves. The cave that was the most fun was probably The Wye Cave, it goes almost straight down for a couple hundred feet until you reach a small room and to hangout for a bit. The thing you have to be cautious of is that there is a lack of oxygen in the cave so you have to take short breaths. Some of these caves go on for hundreds of feet just go on and on. The Maquoketa Caves is one of the coolest places you will ever go.

Can you break out?

Breakout games is a real life breakout experience. It is located six major cities Lexington, Kentucky , Birmingham, Alabama, Louisville, Kentucky, Cincinnati,Ohio, Knoxville, Tennessee, Atlanta, Georgia and Dayton, Ohio. In Breakout you are locked in a room that has its own theme there are four theme's Island Escape, The Kidnapping, Derby Heist, and Casino Royal. My personal experience was with the Island Escape room. As soon as you walk in it looks like you are at a beach with a boat. An employee that walks in with you is called the game master. He explains to you that you have a hour to find the code to unlock the door and breakout. There are many clues and puzzles to solve each one leads to another. When my family and I went At first we were so confused we had no idea were to start. Each clue lead to another the more we learned the more clues we solved the more intense it got. We were two puzzles away from breaking out we were disappointed but we all agreed that this was very fun and brought us closer together. If you are going to any of there places to visit your family or friends you should definitely go to a breakout games branch.
