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.

Driving Route 285 from Santa Fe, New Mexico to Boulder, Colorado

As a short note to self, I drove back from Santa Fe, New Mexico to the Boulder, Colorado area yesterday on Route 285. Amazing, 285 runs right from the front door of the hotel I stay at in Santa Fe almost right to Golden, Colorado, so the drive is Route 285 north to Route 6 north in Colorado, and then onto Route 93 to Boulder.

Things to do in Boulder, Colorado

I have some family coming into town next week, so I find myself looking for things to do in the Boulder, Colorado area. Here’s a collection of links I’ve put together so far:

Sun, Jun 24, 2007 (Did I mention that I moved?)

Hah, everything got so fast at the end I forgot to mention one minor detail here: I moved to Alaska.

On May 8th, 2007 I packed up everything that would fit in my RAV4 and left Louisville, Kentucky and drove to Alaska (yes, Alaska).
