Three State Drive!

We drove from Nebraska to Illinois today.

I wish I had more to say about the drive but I left my brain and stomach somewhere in Iowa! There were about a million hills between Lincoln and Ottawa, Illinois. This made the drive seem to go on forever, it wasn’t until I put on an audiobook that the drive became less of a chore. (World War Z)

We should hit ontario sometime tomorrow! Please continue to wish us luck!

The Lighter died about two hours ago

Yep. Beyond a trucker that decided to match our snails pace along 80 east, we had a good drive. The sky kept on threatening to rain, but nothing came of it.

Rather than stress about the lighter we’ll go on without it, keep a short driving goal in mind.

Today we passed the middle of the way for the trip and are now closer to home than Eugene.

We have about 1000 miles to go, but we should be able to stop in illinois then make it to Canada by monday afternoon!

Wish us luck on the last two legs of our trip!



Very Expensive! 156 for the room, 20 bucks for breakfast. Damn! Now for gas!

NOTE FROM THE FUTURE: After I posted this a cockroach the size of a small cat crawled up the curtain behind Jen and we had to abandon the table (a table full of food too)  and left the restraunt.  The waitress had said under her breath that this was not a new problem.

250+ Miles Down, 240+ Miles to Go

At a rest stop in Idaho, about half way to Ogden, Utah. Our goal is to sleep in Utah, drive to Nebraska, sleep there then hit Illinois by Sunday. Wish us luck!

NOTE FROM THE FUTURE:  Idaho smelled of Onions and open Sewers in the Built up areas

Holy Crap, we nearly rolled!

On the Road Again!

On Vox: Superbad and Goodbye

Last night John, Jeff, Damon, Ben, Nathan, Karl, Alex and I went to see Superbad at the local Regal Stadium Theater; and I think we all laughed ourselves stupid.

Somewhere around the giant penis riding the bomb a la slim pickins we were all subnormal, and happy to be there.

All in all, I want to avoid saying too much about Superbad; other than to endorse its repeated viewing with all of your friends and its purchase in multiple formats.  Look, if they come out with a shrinkydinks related Superbad merch pack, I think you might want to buy it.

We all agreed that the DVD release of this movie will be an instant must-buy and I think we all made a silent pact to purchase it via advanced ordering.

The whole theater was engulfed in laughs during this one and to address the “misogynistic” claims made against it, what did teenage girls talk about at that age, huh?

Last night I also said G’bye to Gooddamon as he won’t be back at the office this week, so Bye, see you on the internets.
