Detour

Detour

I think this is how I’m gonna go home now. See, I’m stuck in Chicago. WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY? What’s this white stuff? Why does it fall and stay on the ground? Where’s the sky? This is not New Mexico. Des Moines looks to have similar weather right now and the route between cities seems pretty […]

Day 3: Chicago

I brought snow.

Sharka roadtrip day 3: Chicago – Lotsa walking and no driving. I saw some sights and museums and cool stuff today. I drove not one bit. It was awesome. The snow was less awesome, but at least I didn’t have to drive in it. I brought snow from Columbus. Chicago was fine when I got […]

Ohio to Chicago

Brrr!

Day 2 of the adventure: Ohio to Chicago! My room was warm. My car was not. Though it doesn’t look like much, this is a nice 1/8″ thick layer of ice on Sharka. And though that doesn’t SOUND like much, it’s enough to make it hard to thaw the back window (plastic) and open the […]

In Chicago!

Too tired to update. Will type in the morning. But I’m here in Chicago, safe and sound. I had a totally boring drive with truckers playing inchy-squinchy as they passed each other at inches-per-minute every step of the way. sigh. stupid trucks.

Stopping by the Hotel on a Snowy Evening

Prepare for some inane, immature, car-guy ranting and gushing. My day started at 4:15 am. I didn’t sleep really well. I kept dreaming of things like not being allowed on the plane with all my tools (which were checked) and not being allowed to land due to the ice and snow and the car having […]

1800 Miles

the map

This is my planned route. First stop – the car. Then I stay in Columbus for the night. I think flying and getting the car will be enough for the day. 2nd stop: Chicago. I’ll stay with my dear friends Dave and April for a couple days and check out Chicago a bit. The weather […]

First post!

Howdy! Welcome to my blog. I generally suck at updating these things, so the chances of me keeping up with it regularly are quite low. But I’ll try my best. It is pretty spiffy that I get a one-click blog install with my web host. It was way easy to set up. Anyway, the point […]
