So I'm driving cross-country for the first time since - well, let's just say that Reagan was president and I wasn't of drinking age.
The first two times I went for a woman - to be with her, and then to be without her. This time is for a fellowship at UC Irvine, which is not quite as bad as getting a job.
I took the northern route the first time, Highway 80. Nebraska, I recall, is really long and flat. The second time, on Greyhound no less, I went through the Southwest and then up through the Midwest. It was high summer and I drove with a tattooed redneck who fed his three year-old brandy to make it sleep.
This time I'm thinking maybe via Nashville and the Southwest again. I've never seen the Grand Canyon.
Wondering if anyone has thoughts on sights along the way.
