There was something exhilarating about zooming down the mostly empty highway today and yesterday.
I have done the drive more than a few times with my parents, Nathan, and friends but I had never done it alone. I thought timing might be an issue or finding enough things to do.
I started off the drive with music, some story podcasts that I had to catch up on, calling my mom a few times, All Songs considered episodes, and the audiobook (Jack Reacher novel). I made it safely to my hotel in 9.5 hours, showered and passed out lol.
Today the drive was utterly painless! It was less than half what I did yesterday and mostly straight – there was a lot of mountain terrain on the first half. I listened to a few episodes of a quiz show, and one and a a half episodes of another story podcast.
It was really nice to be listening to so many different kinds of things 🙂 And being out on the road when times are getting more and more bleak – my home state is now on shelter in place.. I wish everyone well
