Wow!

Trenton is about ten minutes from my place, man.

What could possibly be of interest to you there, by the way?

Re: Wow!

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. =)

Re: Wow!

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...

Radio Transmitter?

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 :)

.. 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!@#.

Couldn't actually find one. I should go to REI.

I should do some more research first. Linux support would be nice.

MT

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 :)
