Driving through Iowa, typing on my iPhone (excuse typos,please). We're headed for Kelley's Island for a week of fun in the sun on the balmy shores of the beautiful Lake Erie with a big bunch of the Old Man's family. Yep, we rented us a Double-wide and we've packed up the family hauler to get there. Unfortunately, local ordinances prevent our family from pitching tents in the yard and "camping", but don't think we didnt have interest in that plan. You think I'm joking. I'm not.
W're a tually making pretty good time today, considering our setbacks yesterday- which really couldhave been bad but the road-trip Gods were with us. First an engine light in the middle of BF Nebraska. Thank god foe the iPhone- we found the closest caddy dealer, called 'em to say we were on our way and try had us in and out within an hour and a half and an ill-advised trip to Perkins. We had a bum mass airflow sensor. So I guess that $1300 preemptive Service we paid for was a skosh wasteful. Anyway, I can't say enough nice things about the people of Kearney, Nebraska. They are great.
Then, when we finally rolled into Omaha, where I'd made reservations for the night, we'd just
missed a killer storm that hadthe city crazy fucked. No power, tree limbs everywhere. Hell, we saw entire trees down- like just plain uprooted right in the middle I town! Our hotel had no power so we had to go to another one in the downtown district, which was actually pretty nice. Send prayers to the people of Omaha- they got a whoopin'.
So now we are almost to illinois, on the lookout for ourfirst Cracker Barrel stop, and clearly now entering a Roadkill Heavy Zone. Moods today are pretty shifty all around, except the Old Man- who may actually bwlookindg forward to seeing his family. Trey has been screaming since we wokeup, and Ace lost his shit last might and still hasn't been able to right his rig. Deuce, asalways, is pretty mellow. But let's face it, I've been sweeter, nicer, more patient and more pleasant. There, we jus entered Illinois, maybe that will help.
Also, I can send outgoing email from eithery iphoneor MacBook and the tech guy with freshies doesnr think I'm important enough to call na k qboutit, so that problem is indefinitely around. So, I don't know how much time I'll haveto blog this week as I should probably try to stay present and in the moment of all this film fucking fun. Since I can't email you all indi usually, I hope you are good- love you guys!
