The Unrepentant Individual

I’m Here

Ahh… 7 days without internet access at home, and with morning-to-night activity. I’m just starting to wind down.

All told, the cross-country drive was uneventful. I was a bit pissed as our closing on the house took 4 hours, so I was 2-3 hours behind schedule, but it all worked out. I got to meet Nick M in Tucson as I went through, so that was good.

Here’s the car… Packed up to the gills, leaving nothing more than a little cocoon for me to drive.

Next is somewhere in Texas on day 2. Of course, Texas was also part of Day 1. That’s a big damn state… But we made some good time across it :-)

Then, I managed to get into California. What was I greeted with on Sunday afternoon? Yep… Traffic. On.A.Sunday.Afternoon!

But hey, what can ya do? I’m here. I’ve made the drive to and from work a few times, and that’s smooth sailing. It’s about 20-25 minutes, but I never have to get on a freeway, and traffic moves the whole way. At this point I’ll take it.

The apartment is slowly shaping up. I hope to use some Memorial Day sales to acquire a 42″ flat-panel HDTV… Still not sure whether to go LCD or plasma, but I figure either is good. And we still need a couch. And I need to buy a keg to put into my kegerator…

All in all, I’m here, I’m back with my wife and my dogs, and while it’s not exactly my ideal situation, all is coming together. And now that I’ve got a real internet connection, I’ll be able to devote time to blogging again.

    Brad,
    Glad you made it safe. Noticed the door ajar light while you were doing 95. I have the same intermitent problem. Read the above link.

  3. Yeah, I’ve had that one for about as long as I’ve owned it. It’s not even intermittent, it’s on full-time.

    Some people would actually try to fix it. I removed the bulb on the dome lights, carry a little mini-maglite in the car, and was done with it…

  4. What did you think of Tucson? I lived there for 25 years until I moved to Phoenix three months ago. New job, new house. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?
