You are both wrong.

Easy Rider.

Everything turned out well in the end in that one, right?

No. it doesn't. But what it has is kinda good enough.

I really needed a smart phone for my trip... but I REALLY wasn't interested in changing my service provider and plan in order to get a Googlephone.

Going Apple was the easiest solution in this case.

I wish I could get into it... it would simplify my exercise regimen... what little there is of it.

It also seems like all my friends are training for marathons right now. They are always trying to get me to join them.

Hey keyan. I would be interested in that. But I would want to steer clear of the first X-wing game and maybe only focus on TIE fighter and XWA. At least those had a story. But we need to encourage eachother to play more, otherwise it would be a still born idea.

I should have a computer again in a couple of months. or sooner

Get used to it... it never ends.

Hung out with M. a bit last night. She decided to take on a boarder for the 2 weeks before her new roommate moves in, and she was obviously a bit nervous about it.

Turns out: he seems OK as well.

I leave tomorrow, mid-morning, after rush hour. I plan on traveling light: Maybe 5 days worth of clothes, basic toiletries. iPod and phone.

I guess I'll just "rough it" for everything else... though it's kinda hard to say I'd really be roughing it anywhere on the northeast coast of the U.S. (If I need or forget something, I'm pretty sure I'll be able to find it pretty easily on the way.)

Here's my planned route for the first leg of the trip:

Rt. 3A to Rt. 6 at the Cape Cod Canal.

Rt. 6 to Rt. 24 in Fall River.

Rt. 24 to Newport, RI.

From there, I'll probably follow along Rt. 1 through Connecticut.

Then I'll have to decide if I go through NYC, or bypass it and go around. We'll see what kind of time I'm making, and what kind of mood I'm in, I guess.

I'm going to try to make it through New Jersey by sundown, and get a motel in Penn or Delaware. Maybe...

sounds like fun. stay clear of pennsylvania, trust me. nothing to see here but ugliness. but if you do happen to stop by....girls gone wild and vanilla ice are going to be at the hardware bar in scranton. (the same city that the show 'the office, staring steve carell' is based).

going to the gym. yesterday i ran 20 minutes at the 6.5 mph pace. it was fun. need to increase that by 1mph faster though to get a good time.

I'd just be passing through, or just crashing in a motel room.

But I'll see how long this "non-major highway" takes me to get anywhere. I can always re-think it if it seems like it's taking too long to get anywhere.

Though I think it will be a far more interesting ride...

I've already gone down to DC once on the typical Interstate route... and it was pretty damn boring.

I'll be leaving here in an hour or so... so I'll see you guys and update things when I get to my stop tonight!

I still think X-Wing is the best one, actually. The story is told more subtly, but it does have a fine story, and it really fills in the gap of just what the Rebels were doing prior to the first movie. It's also less complex than TIE Fighter or XWA (and less buggy), so it might be a good way for those who have not played in a while to ease back into the games. But we'll have to see what everyone thinks.

As long as we don't schedule too much every week and make steady progress little by little, we should be good. But yeah, we definitely need to encourage each other to keep up with it. And I think talking about the missions afterward would be a big part of the motivation. Like I said, this isn't an original idea - I've seen it done elsewhere, and it seems to work well.

Well, I didn't make it anywhere near as far as I would have liked today. I called it quits in Conneticut, just shy of the NY border.

I'll have to step it up tomorrow to make up some lost time. (I goofed around in Newport for almost an hour.)

It may mean a bit more interstate driving as well... But that shouldn't bother me too much... I think I got a lot of that out of my system today anyway.

My eyes are killing me. Gonna rest up in this motel room for a while, then look for a decent restaurant around here.

Yeah... I hear that.

This is actually pretty out-of-character for me as well... But I figure: change for the better has to start with change of some sort.

Plus, I've been talking about it for so long at work that I HAD to do SOMETHING this week. I couldn't just stay at home... As comfortable and safe that might have been for me.

I'm in Delaware now.

I should be on the other side of Baltimore before I call it a day.

I'll be inside the Beltway tomorrow morning, checking out the sights.

Skipped the Jersey coast in the interest of time... Though I may go back that way if my schedule allows.

Making camp in Columbia MD tonight (and maybe for my whole stay...?)

I'll see how much of a pain-in-the-butt it is getting into the city from here.

But this place is nice, and it's right smack-dab in the middle of a GIANT shopping center... So there's like a zillion stores and restaurants around me... Unlike last night where I had to drive 20 mins just to find a 99... Which isn't that great.

My car has driven almost 600 miles since Boston... Which is like 2 months of the normal use it sees.
And I don't think it's happy about it either: all this sudden and unforseen useage must have shaken a couple of things loose... The dashboard is ablaze with warning lights!

(None of them critical so far... And it's running fine... But it does give me pause. Hopefully all this driving has just shook a couple of sensors loose... That's all...)

(But I'm going to look up the address of the nearest VW dealership just in case.)

Time to wash up a bit and think about dinner...

if you find a chain autoparts store before the VW dealer, they can probably read the codes for you too, atleast some of them
