I’m getting ready to leave for a road trip. Actually, I’m not really actively getting ready. I’m sort of working from in anticipation of leaving later this afternoon. I haven’t exactly packed. I’m kind of a procrastinator.
Right now I’m just sitting here trying to remember how many chargers for how many pieces of electronics I have to take with me. Living in the digital age has certainly changed the Great American Road Trip in a lot of ways. Like, I haven’t been up late every night this week trying to make mix CDs or tapes, because almost all the music I own is on my iPod. Although, Darby did make me a CD, and I can’t wait to hear what’s on that.
I didn’t get around to washing my car like I wanted to before I go. It’s probably not such a big deal, because it’s just going to get filthy on the way. I’m driving through Northern California, and last i checked, it was still on fire. Maybe I’ll just wash it when I get there.
I also need to get all the camping gear out of my trunk. As you may know, I live in a dinky little studio apartment. There’s not a lot of extra storage space here, so there’s certain things that kind of live in the trunk of my car. There’s the sleeping bag and tent, specifically, and a lot of other miscellaneous crap. It’s a lot better than it used to be, that’s for sure, but if I’m going to fill it with my luggage and my sax, then I have to make some room.
Yes, I’m taking the sax with me. I can’t afford to go a week without playing. For now, I go nowhere the sax can’t go.
So, in a few hours, I’m gonna hit the road. I’m going to try to remember to take my camera and take a lot of pictures, so hopefully I’ll have some good stuff to post when I get back.
