An Alternate Universe

Too busy for extensive planning, we threw much of our supplies into large plastic trash bags and boarded the hydrocarbon powered space-time-warp cruiser to an alternate universe. A short two point five hours down the I76-ACE-GSP wormhole plunked us out onto another world. We found ourselves staring out over sandy beaches and breaking waves at a crisp horizon with all of the trivialities of the other universe safely locked away in another dimension. Planet Avalon would be our home for the next few days.


  • Read a book.
  • Eat some seafood
  • Get sunburned
  • Walk along the beach on the line dividing sea from sand.
  • Visit Cape May
  • Completely ignore the latest political, social, ecological, financial disaster/solution
  • Rent and ride a bike
Most of the objectives were accomplished, some multiple times. Unfortunately our home world does not give up it's children easily and all too soon we were drawn back to our persistent reality. However the trail has been blazed and we plan to return whenever another escape becomes possible.
