5 weeks to go!
on monday i'm bringing my car in to be looked over. wish him (the car has been dubbed "black licorice", which i think he hates) luck. my mileage hit 90,000 when i was driving to work on thursday. that means i'll hit 100,000 (and i'll lose my warranty) sometime during the trip. good times.
i still haven't gotten my passport yet. the government is holding my birth certificate hostage.
we finally figured out our actual route. we think we're pretty much only going to have time to go straight north as originally planned, through north dakota. and then we're turning around in san fransisco. which is mildly disappointing because i would have liked to go back through LA and vegas. so anyway, the link over there on the right in mostly accurate. if we work up a better one, i'll replace what's there, but until then...
