Day 36: Checking in from Kentucky

This is just a quick hello since I’m at the tail end of the trip and tomorrow’s going to be a killer.  Sensible people would spend the evening getting halfway into Ohio to shorten the distance between here and home.  But I’m not sensible.  I’ve given in to my inner child, again, and will be doing some stuff in/around Lexington, KY tomorrow morning.  I already had to skip that stuff on two trips now and I refuse to let it happen again!  But I’ve given myself a firm cut-off of noon.  Which puts me in NYC around midnight (or later with naps).  I do have to be to work Monday night and be in somewhat reasonable condition for that.

The photos & final post will wait til I get home.  I’m calling it a very early night here — it’s 10pm.  The extra rest will help get me through the tedious awfulness that awaits me tomorrow.  A 12 hour interstate drive is one thing when you’re just heading from one place to another.  But it’s excruciating after 36 non-stop days.  Nighty night.

  1. Glad you’re going to get some rest, it will definitely make a difference!

    • Thanks — I just hope I don’t do anything too stupid now that I’m energized. Like refuse to stop shooting til 3pm. I will need discipline today — another sunny day!

  2. Well, if you check this before you leave, what music do you listen to? CD or radio or both?
    I’m sorry to hear chocolate shakes are soooo boring to you. To tell the truth, I haven’t had any kind of shake for centuries! If I were to try one now, dark chocolate would be my first choice. But other flavors sound good too. I am a caramel fan. Pretty much anything caramel & I’ll be happy.
    Ahhh, you didn’t tell me what Zesto ice cream you had. Hope it wasn’t boring old vanilla.

    Sending good vibes your way for you last photo session: Blue skies & PWC. Plenty of no traffic wishes also. Drive carefully,take care DJ.

    • Of course, I check my email night and day. I’ve got Sirius — switch back & forth between news, bluegrass, 60s, talk. Weekends are good because I’ve got Car Talk, Wait Wait, etc. But tonight will be rough – I’ll probably resort to awful comedy channels towards the end just because they piss me off so much (racist, sexist) that it helps keep me awake. And coffee. Lots of it. But it means I have to pee every 10 minutes. And naps.

      Caramel is good — but I’m more into the raspberry factor. My Zesto ice cream choice was banana cream pie. It was only so-so. A real Zesto stand would not have had hard pack ice cream. In which case, I would probably have had chocolate w/ nuts. It was well over 90 yesterday — probably 100+ — so I really needed it.

    Another great trip! I wish I could help you with the driving today–I actually love the floaty rhythm of long interstate drives. Have a safe drive home; that noon cut-off will be a challenge!

    • I’m in WV — hop a plane and take over! The interestate loses its “float” after the first couple hours and becomes a nightmare. Got some really nice photos this morning so it will be worth it in the end. Back into the driver’s seat now.
