bug report

Francois you probably know this, but after posting something I get an error in my sidebar.

Undefined variable: cat_modifier in /the_path/inc/widgets/widgets/_coll_category_list.widget.php on line 219

It says a couple of other lines too but I figure the undefined variable is probably enough info. Related to moving the excerpt box? Can't see why, but yeah it's cool having that down below the textarea. On this laptop I have my "preview save files" buttons visible without scrolling. To me that's a good thing.

Okay gotta get on the road. Again.

green

That's what I miss about the east coast. It's green. Lots of shades of green. And wet. Lots of moisture. Everything is covered with dew every morning and people here can't wait for it to rain again. I don't understand. It rained 2 weeks ago. Go figure...

The population density is madness, and there's no good hang gliding near where I'm at, but so what. I need to start looking in different parts of the country for work. Somewhere that has enough rain to keep a yard growing. Give up on the big desert air and the cars that never rust in favor of ... something different I guess.

My niece Kayla, who is 9 years old and clearly going to be a prick-teasing heart breaker even though she thinks she's a tomboy now, was *totally* into cruising the T-bird with the top down.

I gotta take a couple of shots of all the green out here even though it's only a cell phone. Damn I couldn't figure out how to get the phone to put the pictures on the stupid little card. I don't like reading directions but maybe I should make an exception?

I'm not going to New Orleans. South then West means driving through where there's been heavy rains and flooding lately. Back the way I came sounds dull, although part of me wants to just tear up the road and get home and go flying. But I think I'm going home via Las Vegas. My brother in law said Kansas has a flooding issue so I hope that doesn't trash my plans. Not that I have a plan...

bleh

Made it to where I was going around 10p local time. 600 miles finished the trip. I probably got photos of stuff, but the stupid phone isn't worth messing with so, there you go. Did the birthday party thing. Hooray! Mom was quite surprised. Hooray! All that's over now. Hoo freakin ray!

So I guess I'm on break from my road trip. I think me and my brother are gonna go out and see if there's any dimwitted bimbos that need a do-ing. It's NY, so yeah there's a lot of bimbos to choose from. The downside is ... they're New Yorkers :(

nine hundred twenty

920 miles in 16 hours. Not the best performance ever, but not bad for an old guy :) Google says 589 more miles and 10 more hours. Okay that's cool. Once I'm on Long Island I can find a place for Saturday night, so it's not like 589 is required. Most of it, but not ALL of it.

Lower back is okay, but holy crap I'm tired. When the third day is the really good day and you've still got a hell of a fourth in front of you it's not a good thing. I should dig out the phone and see if there's any worthy pictures on it. I'm really mad at that phone for being such a piece of crap, but I guess I'm gonna have to get used to it.

Continental breakfast down in the lobby. I guess continental people eat bulk fruit-loop knock offs and drink truck stop coffee &#59;)

Cincinnati

Not quite, but not out of the question. 12 hours after hitting the highway I had just over 720 miles done. Taking a bit of a break, then drive till Cincinnati is in the rear view mirror.

Not much rain today. A squall or two. Fair amount of road construction :( Did a bunch of top-down driving too. Not sunny, but so what. Kinda nice to blast down the highway like that.

Oh wow Oklahoma has the coolest road! The company that made it even had billboards bragging about how cool their road is. Last of three was "enjoy 3 more miles of smooth road" - so I did :D

I haven't really bothered trying with the weather that much because basically I don't really have any bandwidth for extra miles. Close enough as it is ya know? Good thing today turned out to be mileage-intensive because I needed at least one this trip... Tomorrow will also have to be a very highway day if I'm to arrive in NY, so I better make more miles now.

A road trip test drive blog, meaning I take a road trip and check out b2evo v2. From PHX to ISP by ground. In an '05 Thunderbird without a map. Not that I don't know where I'm going - it's the thought that counts.
