Dude.. driving across the US really bites.

November 21, 2005

So a friend came to me a few days ago wondering if I would help him drive his whole family (10 kids. Imagine puking, screaming, fighting and all else that comes with 10 kids in a 15 passenger van) from Virginia to Utah. At first I was like “uh yeah.. I’d rather poke my eyes out with a stick” but after a moment I was convinced it would be a good idea. We left Thursday night and 22 hours later we were in Kearney Nebraska. We stayed the night and left the next morning, got to Utah Saturday night. It was cool to hang out with my sister and see my friends again and eat some Utah food I’ve been missing. I actually missed having Betos around for any late night cravings! Then Friday, back on the road. We didn’t get far into Wyoming when the snow and wind was so bad they shut down the freeway for the whole state. So we stayed in a hotel somewhere in Rawlins I think. Next morning back on the road we travel all the way to Davenport Iowa it was after midnight when we checked into a hotel. That night I went for a walk to a nearby gas station and picked up a small bag of chips and a half gallon jug of eggnog! (And thus I tasted the first fruits of the season! I love eggnog!) Next day (this was Sunday so yesterday I guess) we drive the rest of the way home arriving in Virginia at about 1:00am this morning. I spent the night there at my buddy’s house and here I now sit back home at 11:30am eastern time.

My conclusion is that the US is big. But not that big, this is the second time I’ve driven from Utah to the east coast and back. If you ever have the choice, take the 6 hour plane ride!

note: sorry for not posting in a while I’ve been busy with all kinds of things and my computer and I are now on opposite side of the continent so I wont be posting much till I get back to Utah! Well… that’s not true… I probably just wont have any pictures on it for a while.
