Long time no write

It has been over a month since I wrote in this blog--life gets busy. I'm currently battling a cold that's keeping me from birding (and writing in the bird blog) and thinking (and writing in the impeachment blog). So you faithful three followers: I apologize, but it's not like anyone is getting much more from me!

Still, things have been hurtling forward toward our moving date of July 26 (a date Matty picked, could be random, could mean something -- ?). For my part, I've applied for a couple of jobs, but I fear there's no way I'll get anything until I'm out there. Still--gonna try to keep putting my name out there; one never knows.

Also, and this is exciting: I've looked at the map of our route, and I've come up with some particulars:
1. Our route will be Interstate 80 all the way west, except for a short piece in Ohio where it's 90/80. Same diff.
2. We will travel through the following states: PA, OH, IN, IL, IA, NE, WY, UT, NV, CA.
3. Some specifics I was able to glean from my tiny atlas (a bigger one would have more detail):
Indiana: we'll be skirting the border of Michigan a large part of the time
Illinois: we'll go through/around Chicago and Joliet, home of the prison
Iowa: we'll pass by Adventureland Park, which might merit a stop
Nebraska: we'll go through Omaha and Lincoln, the capitol city
Wyoming: we'll go near Flaming (gaaaaaayyyaaayyyayayay) Gorge National Park! want to stop there!
Utah: just drive like hell to get away from the mormons
Nevada: we'll drive through the Great Basin (?), and below Black Rock Desert, and through Reno, the biggest little city in the world

After that, it's all California. I imagine by that time, we'll be bleary-eyed and soooo ready to get there.

I will have to do some research on the route through each state; there's got to be more to do and see than just a few big cities. I'm hoping to get some birding done in Nebraska, as we'll be kinda in the "great plains" area.

Any suggestions about stopping places on or very near to I80? please let me hear 'em in the comments!

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction http://internet-aukcion.ru/ but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.

Behind purchases I ask in icq: 588889590 Max.
