Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.

[Weekend away]It's that time of year again. Weekend trip to the mountains with my church! In about 10 or 11 hours we will be meeting at the church and leaving from there to go to the mountains. On a good weekend, it takes about 2.5 hours, but there's going to be road work going there and coming home on Sunday afternoon, so the trip is likely to be closer to 3 or 3.5 hours! But I'm excited!
