I'm A Travelin' Man
While it is only an 860 mile drive, since I'm doing it alone I take two days for the trip. The first is pretty boring, from Illinois to about Columbus, Ohio. Fairly flat, easy to make good time, but boring.
Thank goodness for cruise control, Indiana cops are no fun if you don't have boobs; and it's easy to speed in that state. My wife got out of a ticket there in July, and considering how fast she was driving, I can only think of 38 reasons why.
Tomorrow's part of the trip I like. The drive to Wheeling, WV, is also boring, but from there to Fredericksburg is a beautiful ride. Driving the Cumberland Gap on I-68 and then through the Shenandoah Valley on US-17 there is some great scenery. I'll remember to keep the camera up in the front of the car this time. On the way here I thought I had this great picture of ice covered trees everywhere for miles in West Virginia, except the camera was too cold to function.
So there won't be any more postings today or until late tomorrow night for that matter. Instead, I'll give you some newer blogs on the roll to read:
A Pilgrams Digression - Matthew is responsible for the "Comment to Column" post here a few weeks ago. A little more liberal than my normal reading, but an outstanding writer.
Cutting Edge of Ecstacy - Another conservative blogger. Found through Dane Bramage on the blogroll.
Iowa Hawk is a conservative and humorous blogger.
Mahndisa's Thoughts I used to think of her as a conservative blogger. The more I read the more I realize that categorizing her is unfair. She's a free thinker, which is something I hope to grow up to be one day.
Politechnical - Another conservative view blog. Well written stuff, check out his latest post on "Another Rove Leak".
Enjoy your trip through the Blogosphere, while I enjoy mine through the midwest and mid-Atlantic regions.
