While on our cross country trip I was alone in a moving van. It wasn’t bad, I was able to think about a lot of things, but more on that later, maybe.
I use my old iPhone 4 as an iPod. It doesn’t have an always on connection, but the WiFi is fine and I have a nice collection of music to help pass the time, if I feel like listening to music.
This trip was a prime time to listen to Podcasts, so that’s what I did for a majority of it. Here are the Podcasts that kept me company.
Yes, I listened to a lot of podcasts.
I hope to write a summary post about our trip. It was very tiring, but a complete blast, and I’d do it again in a heartbeat. After I recover from this one.
I have the pleasure of working with some great folks every day. These great folks just so happen to be great developers.
Here’s a classic quote from one of them. I just had to record it.

The final leg of the trip went a lot faster than I expected. We’re all in good health, extremely tired, but in good health.
Couple days of relaxation and back to the grind we go.
We’re on the final leg home.
Kingman, Arizona to Visalia, California. It’s been a lot of fun, but I’m ready to be home.
We found a nice little coffee roaster here in Kingman.
The drive out of Albuquerque was really beautiful. Red sands and lots of tabletop mesas. The American Southwest is really amazing, but you have to appreciate deserts to understand what I’m saying. Color me impressed.
Tomorrow, the push home, Visalia, California. Then, rest for a couple days. I’m exhausted.
We left Denton, Texas, yesterday morning around 8AM and arrived in Albuquerque yesterday afternoon around 5:30PM.
A change to Mountain Time gave us another hour back, that was kind of nice.
Today’s goal is Kingman, Arizona.
We are visiting Walter White today, at least that’s the plan.

Well, we didn’t make it to Vernon. We’re in Denton, Texas, for the evening. We got off to a late start and ran into some pretty serious weather, so we didn’t get as far as I would have liked, but this will do for the night.
I haven’t seen rain this hard in a VERY long time.
I just got an emergency alert on my phone, we’ve pulled off the road in hopes the downpour will stop.
Looks like we’re about an hour outside Dallas.
