Hitting The Road

The time has come to roll, ladies and gentlemen! The second annual pilgrimage to the Golden Dome is on its way. We will leave the house in a few minutes to start heading towards South Bend and our weekend at Notre Dame. Blogging will be light today, but this time our hotel has Internet access -- so I will be able to do some blogging over the next few days. Many thanks to those who offered better route options than trans-urban Chicago ... we'll try Joliet instead and see how we do.

Shake down the thunder!

UPDATE, 4:58 - Made it to Michigan City after about nine hours on the road, including an hour outside of Rockford for lunch. We're a bit stiff and it took us about an hour to get the energy to unpack and get settled, but now we're thinking about finding a bite to eat. The internet access here is excellent but hardwired, so I'll go out and buy a long cat-5 cable so I can run the computer from the bed.

This is the first time I've taken a long road trip with XM satellite radio. I liked it, although I have to use the FM link to get it to play on my car stereo, and passing trucks with heavy communications equipment often interfere with the transmission. I listened to CNN and Fox, so I kept up with a couple of news stories all day. I'll have a few things to write about the hysterical John Murtha later on tonight. Right now, I'm going to catch up with e-mail and comments and then get some grub while we wait for the Admiral Emeritus to arrive.
