The plans for the Trek are now set. I have reservations for everywhere I can get them (stupid Crater of the Moon national monument), and the route is fixed at over 4600 miles. Should be a good time.

I've also made a great deal of progress on the move itself -- I have a PO Box for temporary mail receiving until my apartment is available, and I also have made arrangements for all the important utilities (power/gas, phone, DSL). I'm probably going to wait on any sort of TV, I'm really liking the offering of the DirectTivo (with HD) but the HD receiver/dvr is $1000. The monthly service cost, though, is very reasonable compared to cable. At least the cost includes 2 additional standard receivers, so I can put reception into every tv in the apartment.

Only 8 more real days working at CMU (technically its 9, but I'm taking Aug 2 as PTO, or 13 if you count weekends). Things have been busy with training je2i (and to a lesser extent, dariaphoebe) on the ins and outs of the mail system along with assisting with the Qatar installation.

More ranting about the PVGP is promised, but I haven't had time yet. Time to go get a margarita at Mad Mex.

Driving -- not going back to Jersey for any reason first (did that a few weeks ago).

Completely unrelated to this post...

I'm just going to steal a lot of things from your list of interests, OK? Like, while I thought of putting "coffee," it totally didn't occur to me to put "chai." And stuff. Yo.

I would ask you to bring me a Sam's chicken Cheesesteak and fries, but I don't think it would last 4600 miles. :( I miss Sam's.

Yeah, I'm not big on sams, and I don't think I'd want to live with it for a month and 4600 miles.

I do, however, have all the beanie babies you left in the student hole when you left computing services.
