I has arrived!
Sheesh, finally made it.
Sunday evening actually but Mariott apparently doesn’t give much love to their Courtyard digs so I had to leach WiFi from somebody with an open connection and didn’t want to type passwords that someone could be sniffing.
What a trip!
America is one great big giant country. By car. It’s like it has no end. Driving trough Kansas especially! Damn. Going 80+ mph the scenery is so similar if it weren’t for tire noise you’d think you were barely moving. Driving trough Dallas was pretty insane, almost like Miami.
And what’s with closing rest stops and not saying a thing about it?! Louisiana, Texas and Oklahoma I’m talking to you! Just because we use you to get from point A to point B doesn’t mean you can close all rest stops without putting signs up.
Denver was alright. Wat with backward highway exits though? East on left side, west on right side! Or is Florida backwards? Hm. It was 48 degrees when we arrived. Cold enough to have steam coming out of the mouth when talking outside.
Although we blew trough Salt Lake City I have to say … those mountains were awesome. Probably one place I wouldn’t mind living in for a while. Loved it from whatever little we saw.
We’re still sleeping on the floor until tomorrow, and have yet to wake up to a view of the mountains nearby. And I’m typing this on the floor too so right now we’re worse off than a Japanese condo. I’m not going to be around much until we get something to sit on.
It’s raining. 4 days in and I’ve seen something that looks like sun light uummm … 4-5 times. And a bit of blue sky trough cloud gaps. Rain comes on without warning too.
It looks like troughout the area they are packed tighter than the people living on Miami Beach. It feels like they’re on top of each other. Even the old old houses are very close to each other! And those hills … my ears still pop going downhill.
Tried walking the hills of Tacoma looking for apartment and just about died 15ft later. They can give you a heart attack and your car 0 mpg mileage.
Haven’t seen a peep of the local tv stations yet. We gave the inlaws our flat screen TV because the car was overloaded. But at least there’s the internets.
Ok enough rambling my ass is starting to merge with the floor I think. I’m off to enjoy the rain and clouds.
