January 12th, 6:30 am we depart and head to Nashville TN. only a few things to note of our long day in the car. I am learning/perfecting my manual driving skills so this adds a bit more excitement to the time while i am driving. i really do ok but getting started is occasionally a little rough. the check engine light is on and we are choosing to ignore it. this maybe the first time in his life my dad is doing this and i can tell its bugging him. another thing... the speakers don't work... thats right over 40 hours in a car with now speakers! we have a little one that attaches to an ipod and we are about halfway through the hobbit. not much else to report.
Everywhere we have driven so far is really beautiful an the snow has only added to that but i am ready for a change of scene and am looking forward to the midwest. tomorrow is another long day on the road but for tonight we are at the Grosses, my dad works with there dad and they have 4 kids ages 10-17 (thats a guess). My dad and paul have been talking macs and iphones and pads and apps for the past few hours, I'm ready for bed, but its only 9:45. (we also went through a time change today)
this is boring, sorry if you read it. i swear that things will get more exciting once i get to Tucson, only about 1600 miles to go. I am will get pictures on here some time too.
