I don’t always eat granola bars, but when I do, I prefer Nature Valley® Crunchy Granola Bars.
For those of you still checking this, I am working on cutting down some video I took into some short clips. Last time I edited video was back in high school and I forgot how long it takes and how much it scratches my low-grade OCD itch.
Made it to Denver, 568 miles in 9.5hrs. My granola bar and water diet has started to catch up with me though so tonight I will indulge in the first and last real meal of the trip: DENNY’S!
Nothing interesting to talk about. Except that Kansas has this excelllent plan where you can either pay a toll to drive down boring old i70 or take a parallell route that’s just as fast that brings you through some hard core pastoral landscapes. I mean straight up Ansel Adams shit. It kind of surprises me that anyone takes the toll road.
Here’s a few crazy things I saw today:
On the side of a furniture truck: “Reasonable delivery rates!!” Do they also offer adequate financing and competentish sales staff?
On the back of a dump truck: “Not responsible for accidents.” Well I guess that guy is impervious to litigation since he’s got a little sign on his truck.
“Office space for rent” - Sign in the middle it’s farm field in Kansas with no office buildings in sight. No contact info, so I guess you just pull over and stand by the significantly until someone comes by to rent you some office space.
Truck drivers like to pass me going just BARELY over the speed I’m doing. I like to slow down so they get past me and I’m not getting blown around or getting water sprayed in my face. Then the trucks like to pull in front of me going my new, slower speed. Thanks, truck!
