Help me name my dingy!!!! contest extended to 9/22

Seriously fellow sailors and sailorettes, I need your help. With all the preparations I've been making to provision and get Journey ready for our big Bahamas trip in November, I haven't been able to decide which name will be the "right" one to plaster on the side of the dink. Next week, Al and I will be inflating her in the living room to 5200-on the base mount for the forward nav light, so this will be my last chance to add the name before she gets rolled up and stored.
Here are the contenders:
A. Side Trip
B. Detour
C. "are we there yet?"
D. Single Step
E. Day Tripper
F. Pit Stop
G. Journey's End (thanks Cassie!)
H. ,interrupted
As you can see, I've got some idea that she should allude or compliment the big boat's name of Journey; I absolutely refuse to call her T.T., and I can't make a final decision.
So I've decided to let you name the dink. Vote for the one you like the best. Use the letter (A, B whatever, in your posting.) Next week, I'll tally them up and the winner gets to NAME MY DINK! Please vote only once, so that it's fair, and so the comment section doesn't get blown away in length. Have fun this weekend, invite your friends to stop in and vote for your favorite, and I'll check them all out and tally the votes on Tuesday when I get back from the boat. Then I'll announce the winner! Thanks! MJ
I'm giving this more time since interest seems to be there, and mostly because my living room floor is buried in food supplies, so I can't blow up the dink right now.

I like 'side trip.'

How about Excursion? I think someone looking to burglar your boat just needs to hang around for a day and they'll connect you to your dinghy. It doesn't hurt to use something disconnected as it could help. But I personally wouldn't let it stop me from connecting the two...

With a boat named Journey I think "Side Trip" makes perfect sense. LW, you really made me laugh........"there are evil people there".....priceless.

Since you're going to the Bahamas, you need to be aware that there are evil people there. They steal dinghys and burgle boats. The way they find boats to burgle is to identify the boat that belongs to the dinghy at the dock. If the dinghy is at the dock, chances are the owners are away from the boat. If the dinghy can be traced to the boat, bim bam....they know which boat is ripe for burgling.....so it's best not to give would be burglars hints as to the identity.......Give the dinghy a name totally disconnected to the mother ship.

"If you can read this, the big boat must've sunk"
