Miami Road Trip 2009


One of the biggest North American electronic music festivals, Ultra, just wrapped up in Miami. I think it’s about time that I blogged about my experience there last year. I attended last year’s edition with Carolyn just prior to a return trip which included visits to… Florida State University in Tallahassee, FL Georgia Tech in [...]

Visiting Boston


After a few false starts this Winter, I finally made it to Boston this weekend. I went with Carolyn and Jumbo. It was great to take a road trip where I wasn’t in the driver’s seat `:]` We stopped at the Museum of Science as soon as we arrived. It housed an excellent “history of [...]

Fin!


Phew! I’m home. Time for some maths… 34 days 15 states 3,900 miles(!) $310 spent on fossil fuel 27 MPG average in my Mazda3 $70 spent on tolls, mostly on the East coast $350 spent on lodging $10 per night on average – not bad! For the nitty gritty, take a look at my Tulsa/Denver [...]

Old friends in Iowa


On Sunday morning I left Denver for Sioux City Iowa. I drove northeast for a few hours then dropped the hammer through the flat flatness of Nebraska. I arrived sometime after midnight at the home of my elementary-school-era neighbors Tom and Noni. Tom directs an impressive tri-state air ambulance service and Noni hops from city-to-city [...]

Some live music at Tulsa’s Marquee


Tessah’s friend Jenna gave us an impromptu tour of the Brady Arts district. As expected, it was cold at the center of the Universe. Oderkirk Trivia Tessah saves those little dessicant packets from shoeboxes in case she ever drops her cell phone in the toilet.

Late lunch in Rolla, MO


Ahoy St. Louis. I’m aiming for a late lunch @ Alex’s Pizza Palace in Rolla, MO. This message is brought to you by the General Packet Radio Service.

Tulsa road trip day #2


I had a nice leisurely morning today – waffles, some meditation, and a swim in the hotel’s pool. I like this pace. After a ham sandwich lunch, I listened to Jules Verne’s “Around the World in Eighty Days”1¬†as recommended by John Udell in an insightful piece about trying to sip from the firehose. The snow [...]

Tulsa road trip begins


I coaxed my iron horse onto the road today at 5pm. Packing for a month of travel took a bit longer than I expected `:]` I plan to… Visit my sister and Jared in Tulsa. Check out a school and meet up with some folks in Denver. Potentially visit Sioux City and Omaha. Jet back [...]

Daft Punk at Keyspan Park


I just got back from a long weekend which included seeing Daft Punk at Coney Island and camping with my Dad and Grandpa in Old Forge in the Adirondacks. On Thursday at Noon I jumped on a Jet Blue flight bound for JFK. One hour and one hundred dollars later I was waiting at JFK [...]

Bonnaroo 2007


I got back from my second Bonnaroo today at 10am. 1600mi on the road, 28hrs in the car, and a lot of sun, music, and cool people. I drove down in my Neon with Carolyn and met Heather and her friend Justin at the festival. Last year’s critical dub moment came when I was wandering [...]
