That's a vintage instrument panel you have there. Not a kilometer to be found, those were the good old days.

Okay, so here I am at the Sleep Inn in Fairview Idaho- hey free wifi! I had planned on stopping in Twin Falls, but the whole damned place is full- like EVERY hotel, as a result of a girls volleyball tourney or something.

Cheesy- where should I wave? Or in which direction? Same question to Scott.

Pants and Jill- the drive? Bo-ring (or, in light of Halloween, maybe it should be "Boo-ring"?)

Irr, I see myself more as the Jake, but I could be wrong.

Slag, I like those old gauges, the way the needle bobbed to and fro, leaving you to guesstimate your true speed by virtue of the median.

That Guy (J)- I leterally did not ever stop moving in Utah, even though toward the end I really had to tap a kidney.

Blondie, I have a similar shot of my actual speedo from a drive to MN. Seems like a good reason to drive that fast- "But officer, I really needed the shot, and the lighting was just right."

Heh. Thanks to all for the well wishes. I'll maintain my street cred by not mentioning how I cried like a baby when I said goodbye to the fam.

You must tell everyone about your speeding ticket!! Do share! I take great joy in blabbing about this, as I am the one who always gets the tickets in our household. Stucco always likes to call me "lead-foot." Are you eating humble pie now, Darlin'?

Dude, never wave from your car. Uncool. Lift your chin high. Let it drop.Slowly. You are driving, remember? You've got things to do with your hands other than waving. Remember, kids wave from school buses all the time.

I imagine you are taking the high road?

Santa Rosa was eighty beautiful degrees today.

I didn't pack for summer.

Remember too, when road tripping, to pull into little towns at 3;30 ish, when the high schools are letting out, and do the chin thing to all the young chicks. It'll make you feel young...

And stay away from those free buffets. They'll make you feel old and fat and THAT PAGODA GUY might be around...
