Due to over 45,000 students moving into houses, apartments, townhouses, etc. in preparation for classes starting in just over a week, it is going to take a week and a half to get someone out to my new house to set up the internet. I am currently at a cafe just up the street (1541 Pastries & Coffee) drinking a chai latte trying to get some work done but since A&M is down for scheduled maintenance (and I don't know their schedule) I am unable to get that work done and have a quick moment to let you all know...
Days 2-4 of the Route 66 Road Trip will be posted next weekend when I FINALLY have internet at home and, therefore, more than an hour to do everything I need to do using the interwebs at an internet cafe.
You really don't realize how reliant you are on it until you are deprived of it (especially when setting up a new home). Yeesh!
P.s. I am going to pre-date the road trip posts so they have the correct date. So, see below ; )
The drive was relatively painless and the company was great. We ran into minimal traffic (even through the traffic we did hit just outside of Fontana made Dad "frustrated"), sang some Classic Rock, and Paughey behaved remarkably well! He pawed at the door a few times but finally caught on that he wasn’t going anywhere and eventually laid down and enjoyed the ride.
The Many Positions of Paughey
Enjoy the Scenery!
At approximately 9pm we crossed the California/Arizona border and I am officially no longer a California resident!
We had every intension of going for a walk across the London Bridge when we got to Lake Havasu around 10pm but it was 107° so we decided to crank the AC and watch some Olympics instead. Dad and Paughey are ZONKED out already recharging for another day of Route 66 fun!
Stay tuned for Day 2.....
Today I start the 4 day journey to Texas via Route 66 and the official start of a new chapter in my story. While I am saddened to leave San Diego and the comforts of home, the excitement of this adventure greatly outweighs any reservations I might have.
First stop, Lake Havasu!
The last week has been quite a life changing adventure. My parents and I traveled out to College Station/Bryan, Texas in search of my first home and… WE FOUND IT! Currently we are going through the post inspection negotiations but everything has been going quite smoothly thus far.
I am a biologist and my life is crap!
