I think I kinda like phoenix, even the hot. all I get to see this trip is the airport, the office, and the hotel, though. it's all reddish dirt and green trees and crinkly mountains. I think a road trip version is gonna be in order eventually, with the bikes in tow.
I really need to have a ton of work done on the truck. nothing's actually wrong, but it hasn't gotten the routine maintenance it needs, and it makes me nervous about long-haul trips... especially in the summer in the southwest. I guess now that the loan is all hammered out, it's time to find a good local mechanic and dog-ear half my next paycheck to pour into the truck. then it's on for another 100,000 miles of driving.
I'll be back in LA this evening. tomorrow night,
shit. I stopped there to find a link to the track, and wednesday practices have been moved to TUESDAY. so I guess thursday night, first run on the track at whittier narrows. I'm as excited as a little girl.
oh and it took an hour of sportscenter this morning to find out we lost. fuck not having tivo.
