Sorry to my friends who heard all this already. Probably more than once. The deal is my car broke down a few hours from home tonight, so I’m stuck in a crappy little motel. I am happy that I had AAA to get me to a town and am able to put myself into a motel (be it EVER so humble).

As I like to say, it could always be worse.

Of course, it could be better too.

Kelly’s (the wife for those that REALLY haven’t been paying attention) due to begin working tomorrow morning, so that cause a bit of panic as I needed to be home to watch the kids. Luckily, her brother has come to the rescue and will be picking up the little ones and the older girls will go to school as per.

I actually ate a sandwich from a gas station for dinner. Cue Vacation quote.

I’m hoping it’ll be minor and I’ll be on the road quickly in the morning.

Wish me luck!


Hump Wednesday

The astute reader will recall that I used to always update daily while traveling, I guess I’m bringing that back. It’s tough as usually when I’m on the road, it’s pretty much full gas all the time. And when it’s downtime, I don’t want to use my brain. Yeah, writing about the weather or bikes or whatever is not that hard, but when you’re going full blast you just kind of want to veg when you have the chance, right?

Maybe it’s just me.

Anywho, it’s still raining. Yeah, man. What a ripoff. Luckily, I was inside all day. I forget how horrible that is this time of year. I am a person who needs to see the sun! Or at least daylight.

So I’m not out here surfing or anything. That would be sweet though.

The hotel I’m in here is pretty boss. I actually ran on the treadmill for half an hour today. That’s something, right. And yes, Kelly, I was running shirtless and took some time to check myself out at the mirror, like a regular gym rat.

You know what else? I’ve eaten at Subway two nights in a row. It’s pretty much the only thing in walking distance that’s cheap.

Well, wordpress is being weird and I can’t see what I’m typing now., so I guess I’m logging off. Hopefully this isn semi-legible.


I don’t even know where I left off.

Spent last week Thanksgivinging with the family in Sedona. It was awesome as always. I did the math and I’ve been at my mom’s 36 of my 37 Thanksgivings. Pretty good record. We missed one when Rory was due.

Speaking of which we celebrated her 3rd birthday yesterday.

Today I flew to Orange County for Felt. It’s been raining all day. Not terribly problematic as I’ve been inside all day. Not what you expect though. Left home at 5:45 and had a stop in Vegas, so two 1-1.5 hour flights instead of 1. The way home I have a real lay-over though, so I won’t get home until midnight-ish. That’s not until Thursday by the by, so another night. I’m in a pretty suite hotel though. Suite, get it? Ha! It’s nice though.

I need to go to bed up in here. I maybe slept 2 hours last night and another half hour on the plane, so I’m getting loopy.
