Numbat

Day 1

Hey so. I've been on a roadtrip around the country. It was pretty cool. I had assumed the whole East Coast would be as developed as California (since after all, They started there first) ... was shocked to find that in fact there's lots of forested area over there. Wtf. California is ugly. I don't get why people are so stoked on it.

Anyway, I thought for kicks I'd recreate the experience by posting my notes on the trip one day at a time. Its like a real time update ... only a month delayed.

So yeah.

Day 1: Jimmy, Betty & Matt picked me up near the end of the first day, having come down from the Bay Area. We continued on to Twentynine Palms, CA, and crashed at a friend Betty's'. The place is a giant Marine Corps base, and they say that "29" is "worse than Iraq."

It looks like this out there.
