Overrated and Underrated. April 18, 2012

Overrated - Greek Yogurt. Don't get me wrong. I like them. They taste great. But... aren't they just like regular yogurt except they're more expensive and thicker? I still prefer them over the regular ones but with all the hype around Greek Yogurt, you'd think they were made from Unicorn milk. Or maybe they are?

Underrated - Road Trips. I went to RETSO last week in Atlanta. I rented a car and drove alone. It was awesome! Got to meet a dozen or so online real estate friends and had a great time. The return trip was about 745 miles. Drive time was 10 hours and 3 minutes. The last 4 hours was in the dark, so I drove a lot slower. Do the math. I had a lot of fun driving!

I tried Greek Yogurt.  Didn't at all love it.  I prefer the fruit on the bottom kind.  Bryers I think.  And Road trips love them.... have driven cross country twice, to houston once and just love road trips.

Tammy, I don't want to mix my yogurt. It should already be done when I get it.

Wow, what a drive. Hopefully you had some good audio books for the trip.

I love a good road trip, especially if I am traveling with someone who enjoys the same kind of music as me and singing the car.  Talk about a moment of bliss.  As for the Greek yogurt, buy the cheaper kind and strain it through cheesecloth.  Homemade Greek yogurt and MUCH cheaper.

I agree that road trips are the best. Not a big fan of yogurt, so I cant chime in on the Greek Yogurt, but I do love a good road trip!

I don't get the whole greek yogurt thing either.  Not a fan of yogurt but love greek food which is ironic since they use so much of the stuff.

Glad you got to go to RETSO.  Wish I could have gone.  Seems like a lot of good connections and good times.

Todd, a LOT of singing along to the music that I like, instead of the kids music.

Jared, it is!

Chris Ann, I drove alone, which has it's good points and bad points. And I never thought about straining it. Great tip, thanks!

John, I haven't had one in at least 12 or 13 years! I'm already trying to figure out another one.

Bryan, the connections with the online peeps that I've talked to were awesome. I can't wait to meet more!

Tammy, classes are overrated. Learning, though, is underrated.

Dawn, thanks! Love me some Greek yogurt.
