Blythe came over and we made our road trip plans. Tenatively, the schedule is as follows:
S 24th: Seattle, WA -> Butte, MT (10:00)
M 25th: -> Rapid City, SD (10:56)
T 26th: (mt. rushmore) -> Le Mars, IA (8:40)
W 27th: Iowa (tue night, wed day/night, thu afternoon)
H 28th: -> Davenport, IA (7:04)
F 29th: -> Trenton, OH (8:26)
Trenton -> Seattle: 43 hours, 46 mins
Now we're off to get an oil change, get a GPS & Map software, and go to Azteca for dinner.
Trenton is about ten minutes from my place, man.
What could possibly be of interest to you there, by the way?
I'm staying in Middletown, actually.
That's the plan, anyway.
We're coming for no good damn reason. :) Visiting whitaker, nolegs, jesus, jgambrell, etc... and you! Come to our ho-down redneck party Saturday night. Yee haw.
Holy sheepshit. I'm probably having a party at my place Friday night. I'll email you my number, if you'd like to swing by and say hi. My neighbor's "jcope," but I think she's working Friday, so...bleh.
That's cool shit.
I'll have my friend take you for a ride in his Viper. =)

from middletown? smallish town question: what school you go to?
I went to Middletown High, and I start classes at MUM this Tuesday.
Are you in Middletucky
jcope was in my Calc class last semester.
Sweet Jesus, this town is horrible - Everyone I meet turns out to be someone I got wasted with at "x" person's party or something...
It's like Six Degrees of Middletucky...
Hehehe, looking at your lj friends, I know... 4 of them. Crazy.

Trenton, Ohio... The second Ground Zero of LiveJournal! (Would that make it Ground One?)
you should hit some better towns than that, take a some what souther route and his denver, and so on...

Re: better towns
souther is right... day 2 sounds like a sleeping pill...
Hey Brad, I found the radio transmitter. When do you want it? :)
Sometime before Saturday ... what works for you?
Simple little device that plugs into a headphone jack and transmits the audio into a FM channel between 88 and 92.

That's a pretty damn cool idea.
(Better than pulling the speaker wires out of the radio and attaching headphone jacks, anyway :)
Oh, one of those. I thought maybe you meant something cooler... but alas, just an FM modulator thinger.

.. if you dont travel much.
i'll give you some pointers whilst on your trip, if you have any sightseeing time planned.
1) Rapid City has a waterpark, IIRC, i was actually on the campus of South Dakota School of Mines... way back in windows 3.11 days.
Check out Wall Drug if you're in the area, they have a lot of cool (read: bizzare) items that you wouldn't expect to see out in the middle of nowhere *cough* BFE *cough*... :)
and remember, brake on the top of the hills, dont wait till you're going 23498239847238942738mph then decide to hit the brakes... but it sounds like you knew that already cuz u live on a hill :).
and IIRC again, there is a 7-11 in rapids city..
it's all about the slurpee's, yeah!@#.
Which GPS did you get? I've been toying with the idea of getting one myself...
Couldn't actually find one. I should go to REI.
I should do some more research first. Linux support would be nice.
you should drive the extra hour and change to Bozeman, Butte is terrible :)
either that, or stay in Missoula, it's about 2 hours before Butte
anywho, enjoy your trip, you'll be pretty close to where i grew up when you go through MT to Rapid City, not sure which way you'll go, through Hardin on 90?colstrip
is where i went to school, pretty tiny ass town :)
