today is the day. since the only reason i started bloggin' again was to document last june's roadtrip (see archives) i figured i'd do some live writing about this one. dan m. and i wrapped up 12 minutes of planning in his [70s antiseptic elderly jewish widow couture] mid-queens apartment on friday rught before he shipped off to beloved worcester for yet another holy cross wedding. saturday i bought a new rough guide as well as spare antifreeze and motor oil. sometime before 3pm today, well after dan's return to the city, we'll be off to somewhere in W. Va. there's a family owned motel with its own COZUMEL RESTUARANT on state road 26 that i wouldn't mind staying in.
i know i've done too much planning, though. that'll be okay in 24 hours, when the weather, construction delays, near death experiences, etc. completely fuck up our trip. i hope the company car lasts another 3,000 expensive personal miles.
