Superquick Update Spectactular

profgreg and I made the trip from Albuquerque to Long Beach in under 10 hours, inluding stops and 2 bouts of rush hour driving (40 in Albuquerque at 8:30am MDT, 605 near the 5 at 6:00pm PDT).

Tomorrow, we drive to Bay Area. I am glad to be done with deserts forever for a little while. The Joshua Tree / Polka Dot Scrub ratio on the 40 blows.

The 10 hours also included 20 minutes of me sitting on the pavement in Barstow trying to convince Innana to come out from under my car. Other than that, she travels much better than I had any reason to hope. She meowed a bit when we first left Albuquerque, but after about an hour she resigned herself and sat quietly for the remainder of the trip (though, she wouldn't eat or drink until she was inside).

Come to think of it, we were very close to where the photograph in this usericon was taken. It's from somewhere on the 15 between Barstow and Vegas.
