Andrei in the office

Leaving on a .... err, car.. (literal)

Well, in less than 10 hrs I am off to Notocon in Portland, Oregon. I have completely packed the clothes (less dress shoes and socks... yes, I will wear socks at least one evening.

I may or may not post over the next 7 days depending on my connectivity with my sidekick. I hope I will :)

See many of you in Portland on Thursday!

93, 93 / 93!

3pm day 1 with COWS

These will be shorter posts as I am on the mobile client. Which is like a web browser on the barbie laptop (thanks peter for that name)

Saw mrlogic last night. He and his girls introduced Heather and I to the Buffy board game. Despite his girl's penchant for creatively interpreting the rules on behalf of good it was a refreshingly entertaining game. I played as evil against everyone else. It was interesting because Heather was playing Oz and evil summoned Veruca and we wound up in one round biting each other. Heehee

Got the car filled up and on the road by 11:30. Stopped at aaa yesterday for a triptik. At this point we're up in fresno county (shudder). By a strange irony in about an hour we'll be near Alameda.

We just passed a farm with about ... Um... A whole f&^%load of cows. Thousands at least. Very impressive.

More later....

day 1, redding ca

525 miles, 10 hours and we are in Redding, California. Mt. Shasta is about 80 miles north of us and it's almost 3 mi peak is already clearly visible.

We have tuckered in at a Motel 6(66). "I'm Tom Bealzebub, and we'll leave a black candle burning."

The drive was interesting. We got in about 20 minutes ago. Heather is recolouring her hair and I watched the end of MIB II.

Another 6 hr drive tomorrow and then is portland. Tired... Night all.
