Staying true to Something Awful's home state after last week's look at Westport Coffee House, we journey to the Missouri boonies for a stay at ArdPark Cabins. ArdPark lists 40 activities and attractions, most of which are located 15-40 miles away and have no connection to the facilities. "But hey," ArdPark advises visitors, "there are some bowling alleys down the road, and we've never checked them out, and we don't much care for bowling, but it's a thing to do, I guess." Also, there's Geocaching, which refers not to the caching of this Geocities-style site but instead to "an ultra-modern seek-and-find game"! Regardless, everything you click -- every activity, every obscure policy -- opens a new tab, except the text that says "click here" at the bottom of pages; that does nothing. But it's worth sifting through the hundreds of open tabs just to find a charming assortment of goofy old GIFs, some of which I'll showcase below:
Oh, and in case you were thinking of booking your next vacation at ArdPark Cabins, you should probably wait a while.
I'm haunted by a recurring vision of a skeleton flipping me off. To avoid seeing this terrifying image in bumper sticker form, I pay someone with a blank bumper to drive in front of me at all times.
Cons: causes bad nightmares. I used to have to eat beef until I passed out to have these kind of terrors, but this machine does it for me every time I fall asleep inside it.
