An adventure begins

Uberjam & I are just finishing up our packing, getting ready to go to Vermont (8:15 am flight on NWA ... that's right, I said NWA)! Just trying to get all my last minute stuff done. But it's OK if I don't - I just got one of THESE fancy things, so I'll have internet connectivity wherever I go.

Today on my drive back to Austin after a day in the Houston office, I got a bit lost (forgot to hang a left on 290 in Brenham, doh). But I just whipped out the trusty laptop, and mapped a route to correct course, with a little help from GPF (a very similar technology to GPS, only with more making fun of you for being stupid). So, anyway, it's already paying off, and I'm sure it'll be a great help on my trip northward.

We hung out tonight with our dear visiting friend Anna. Being with her reminds me of how important it is to keep old friendships alive, even when separated by distance.

I'll likely be journaling about my trip here, so stay tuned. Uh, that's going out to the 3 people who read this blog. You knows who yous are.
