:: xCountry: day ∞ ::

well, we made it. landing safely in the bay state around 7:30 on the 26th.

waking up 20 minutes or so from niagra falls was a awesome.

walking out into a side-ways rainstorm, was less awesome, so we decided to just hot-foot it towards massachusetts.

:: xCountry: day cinque ::

:: xCountry: day won ::

Day one (or won interns of us getting through it) has been completed. A day which began with finishing up packing the moving truck (again), returning of rental equipment, packing both vehicles and saying goodbye to PDX ended one hour earlier than we planned just inside the Oregon border.

:: the fastest way through airport security ::

forget your first class tickets.

frequent flier miles won’t do it for you.

it’s even more effective than government clearance.

want through security quickly? take my screaming son on the trip with you.

the end of a two-week holiday odyssey in massachusetts left me on the brink of d-day.

later in the afternoon i would be traveling (solo) across the country with my over-active, under-slept, mile-a-minute, incredibly cute, sometimes-psycho and oft-times charming two (going-on-13) year old.
