worst 60 miles ever

Took 3 hours 45 minutes to get out of NY and all the traffic from the 2-lane-closing accident on the George Washington Bridge. 60 lousy miles in almost 4 hours :( Ended up with a lousy 450 in 10 hours, and no clue how many more miles to go.

This car is tops for road trips!

But now - now being tomorrow morning relative to yesterday having been a heavy traffic day - my back is starting to hurt. And my legs are unhappy with walking. They don't like driving either, so I think maybe it's the end of the line. Yesterday was too much time using the gas and brake pedals. Getting up to speed and locking it on cruise control helps my back not get stiff. I think it's because I can move my legs into more natural positions than the extended right required to operate a gas pedal.

Oh well. Whatever happens won't happen sitting here wondering why the tool bar has a button for "b" and a button for "str". Ditto for "i" and "em". They do the same things right? Also the "Code" tool bar seems like a mystery. codespan, codeblock, xml, and php buttons: why? I wonder if I can insert php into a post that will be executed before being sent to a browser. Let's see!


echo 'nope.  this is just pretty code display';
echo 'therefore it\'s just a fancy version of the "code" button from the top tool bar';

Oh well. I should either get going or decide to hang out a while. I really want to make a record day today, but the road has gotten a bit old ya know?

It's 6am in this time zone, probably 3am out in the car, and this blog thinks it's noon. Time to step outside and decide if I'm up for a thousand mile day. That seems like a nice goal right? A thousand miles in one day. In a T-bird. With the top down. Stopping only for the mythical "hottie in a sundress hiked up on one thigh hitch hiking who, when asked 'how far you going?' replies 'I always go all the way'".

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.
