First, we packed. And before we could pack, we had to partake in a ritual drinking of the undrunk wine.
M1 slugging it.
And then, after a night’s sleep, we finally got on the road.
Starting point: Pittsburgh, USA.
Destination: Mountain View, CA.
Can’t imagine why America would have an obesity problem.
End of the first day: Walnut, Iowa.
We stayed with M2‘s awesome parents, who treated to a fantastic late-night dinner, paternal wisdom and accommodations in their Opera House on the Prairie turned megapimp SwanPad.
In Nebraska, we found some paraphernalia you don’t often see in NYC or the left coast.
“THIS IS THE MONEY YOU COULD’VE SAVED IF YOU HADN’T VOTED FOR OBAMA”
Nebraska, apparently, is in the wind farm/clean energy game.
Interstate 80 starts to stretch on forever once you hit the arid deserts of Wyoming.
Some ominous signs as we climbed over the Rocky Mountains.
“WATCH FOR SNAKES & SCORPIONS.”
Then there was an epic hailstorm outside of Salt Lake City.
And finally: HOME SWEET HOME: the new SpeakerPalace, complete with its’ own SpeakerPool. (expect BBQ’s to come.)
Chillin’ on the SpeakerCouch.
