Current Topic: Travel

The decision to flee came suddenly...
Topic: Travel 8:40 am EST, Mar  1, 2004

I'm writing this parked in front of a Kinkos in Reno, listening to Johnny Cash.

I'm not going to attempt to explain right now why I left San Francisco, that would take too long. Maybe later. Lets just say, I was not exactly happy to go, nor would have I been happy to stay. Sometimes, one's journey requires making sudden snap decisions. On my way out, after a period of reflection staring at the ocean and a lengthy drive through various sections of the city, I stopped at Treasure Island, stared at the city, shed a tear, and yelped "I'll be back" before turning my back on her. I meant it.

I also did not say any goodbyes. I hope no one takes offense at that. I hate goodbyes. I prefer to just disappear and reappear, mysteriously.

So far, my trip is going smoothy. Donner had chain control in effect, but no treachery was present that the 4HI button could not regulate.

This spring, I will be mobile. Rattle could be coming to a town near you. Onward, America, roll beneath me with Godspeed.

I love road trips.

Andy Mishkin is an old childhood friend of Elonka, one of the users here on MemeStreams. Here Andy is blogging his day-to-day activities at JPL. Andy, rock on.

First off, I must state I'm in complete awe of all things Mars at the moment. I went to Space Camp when I was a kid.. Wanted to be an astronaut.. You know the story. Thumbs up guys. I'm loving every minute of this!

California to Nashville Car Pool for PhreakNIC
Topic: Travel 6:15 pm EDT, Oct 20, 2003

As the days pass, and the date of PhreakNIC grows closer, its bothering me more and more that I'm not going.

If there is anyone in San Francisco, or for that matter California, or even anywhere in the general area between San Francisco and Nashville, who is interested in splitting costs for the drive out and back, I will drive..

I would like to go, but there is a margin of about $300 that can break my bank this month. And thats about the cost of gas + oil changes + tire/car ware.. So if someone is willing to pay for the Gas, I will drive.. Thats a good deal, it _will_ wind up being roughly 1/3rd the cost of airfare..

There would be room for up to three people. Two other people at most would be ideal, as its a pretty long trip.

So, if any West Coast people are interested in making the trip to Nashville, do get in contact with me..

PhreakNIC starts Friday.. So we would have to leave Wendsday in order to make it.

I'll be posting on Craigslist also.

San Francisco
Topic: Travel 2:42 am EDT, Jul 19, 2003

I'm back! :)

Drove up Rt 1 from LA. Thats a _really_ fun drive.

While I was gone, someone stole the 101's Fell St exit..

LA Update
Topic: Travel 2:07 pm EDT, Jul 18, 2003

Spent the night with my cousin Tim in LA.. Caught the German movie Tattoo, a flick about a serial killer that kills people and takes their tatoos. It was alright, but the main character was pretty weak and I was expecting more gore.

Night before last, I crashed in Vegas, at the house of a friend's friend. So, that makes it two days in a row that I havn't sleep in my car, and was able to take a shower after waking up..

The West Coast is being so hospitable.. :)

Not sure yet where I'm heading from here.. I might hang around LA the afternoon, and then head up Route 1 for the Bay Area.. I've always wanted to take that drive..

Currently in LA.. Will post more later..

The Giant Crack and Trippy Desert
Topic: Travel 10:41 pm EDT, Jul 16, 2003

Currently somewhere in western Arizona, about a hundred miles away from Vegas. Today I took a cruise through the Petrified Forest National Park and the Grand Canyon National Park. Very cool..

New Mexico
Topic: Travel 9:44 am EDT, Jul 16, 2003

Just west of Albuquerque. I took Bugs Bunny's advice, and I did not take a right.

Got a good night of sleep at a rest stop somewhere just west of Santa Rosa.. Well, about as good as any night of sleep in the back of an SUV can be.

I am in need of a shower..
