Listening to The Book Thief while driving alvin June 13, 2019 - 3:32pm

“To have never taken a solitary road trip across country? I mean, everybody’s got to take a road trip, at least once in their lives. Just you and some music.”

~ Claire in Elizabethtown

I’m so glad I listened to The Book Thief on my recent travels. The movie is okay, but the book is 100% better.

A video of the St. Louis Arch (Gateway Arch) alvin June 11, 2019 - 10:48am

I drove through St. Louis this past weekend, and made this 96-second video of the St. Louis Arch, more properly known as the Gateway Arch.

Long drive from Kentucky to Colorado

Started the drive back to Colorado at 5:50am EST Tuesday in Kentucky. Waited out the morning’s nasty snowstorm with some old-timers and truckers at a McD’s in Georgetown, Indiana.

Got tired of waiting, so when the snow let up a little I got back in the car. Maneuvered through snow-and-ice induced wrecks between Corydon and Evansville. Wanted to kiss the ground when it finally got dry after 11am. Drove through the sunset in Kansas, then followed the truckers, the Moon, and stars across the rest of Kansas and Colorado, arrived home at 12:20am MST Wednesday. Looking forward to seeing if the mountains are white whenever I wake up.
