It's me yet once again . .
These daily road trip updates sure do make our relationship a lot more up
close and personal eh? I mean, I type out the daily adventures of Derek and
Jason and you get to use my life for some cheap laughs in between filling
out those spreadsheets. There's nothing like knowing your place in the
entertainment food chain to really put your life in perspective.
But don't worry, I wouldn't have it any other way. I'm not really the type
cut out for the 9 to 5 world. I just can't imagine owning a tie (I break
out in hives at the thought of a button up shirt)
Anyway, tonight we're just outside LA, staying at some industrial sprawl
town named Ontario (and no it's not the one up there in the Great White
North) We made it through the last of the desert without any problems but
it was close. Danger lurked around every corner . . .
But Jason, I, and our little 4 footed cyberdyne system came thru in flying
Tomorrow, we've got to trade in Jason's work truck for the new one and then
turn right back around and hit the road back east. You know there's nothing
like driving 6,000 miles in a truck with Jason to really give you an
appreciation for an airplane.
And remember if you're anywhere near the town of Bithlo Florida Friday
night make sure and head on over to the speedway to see the offical
Freakylinks school bus in it's death defying bid to become the winner of the
school bus figure 8 demolition derby. Hey, bring the whole family!
More as it unfolds
