Road Trip – Day 1

I left town on Thursday afternoon, and started driving.  I ran into a lot of traffic trying to get out of the Bay Area.  Once I was beyond Fairfield, though, it was smooth sailing.  At my first stop, I took out my camera, and I took some snapshots along the way. 

That’s my new hat.  I think it’ll be prominently featured in pretty much all the photos taken of me during this trip.  I’ve decided I look good in hats.  I know, super shallow, but really, it’s about not having to do my hair.

So, this is pretty much what I saw for hours:

And I took this picture to show Me’da that I wasn’t speeding:

Ok, maybe I was speeding, but just a little, uh?

Northern California is still on fire, so this is how the sunset looked.   






Mountain.  It looked bigger in person:

And then it was dark, so I switched my eye gear out.

I decided to stop for the night, and I’ll be damned if the bathroom in the Motel 6 isn’t bigger than my own back home???  WTFH!



So, by the end of the first day, I had driven halfway to my destination.  My good old Honda Civic got about 38 MPG.  Not bad considering the mountains and traffic.  I mostly listened to my iPod, but I also got to listen to Darby’s mix twice.    There were some great travel tunes on there, including a cover by Me First and the Gimme Gimmes of Sinead O’connor’s “Nothing Compares 2 U” which I used to have, and am so glad to have again.
