Home Again, Home Again

And I see we’ve brought the rain with us. Some random thoughts and observations after nearly six days in the car….

* The Ramada Limited was the best deal going as far as lodging goes. Large room, indoor pool, nice continental breakfast, and free wireless, all for under $80.

* Though it seems counter-intuitive, it’s better to avoid the back seat when your children are upset. Oren did much better when we were ignoring him.

* Iowa has free wireless at their rest areas.

* Nebraska has tons of art at its rest areas.

* It is nearly impossible for us to climb without an extra hand.

* Denver is James Howard Kunstler’s worst nightmare. Every bit of open space (and there is a lot) is being converted to housing developments or strip malls.

* Boulder is expensive. I mean, really expensive.
