So I'm in Denver. I left Omaha at nine yesterday morning and pulled into the driveway of my brother's house a little after four local time. It was a long drive. My back really started killing me after about four or five hours. I was ready to pop some pain meds while driving, but figured I should wait 'til I got here.

While driving (sorry, no "America @ 80 MPH" photos taken yesterday - you've all seen Nebraska, flatter than a girl with the body of a 12-year-old boy), I went through about nine CDs. I've really mastered the art of switching out CDs while flying down the highway.

My playlist yesterday consisted of:

Bad Religion - All Ages

Nine Inch Nails - Year Zero

Social Distortion - Mainliner, Mommy's Little Monster, Prison Bound, Social Distortion, Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell, White Light, White Heat, White Trash, Sex, Love and Rock 'n' Roll


Tool - 10,000 Days

Yes, I listened to every Social Distortion album I have, in chronological order.

My brother and his wife and kids all seem to be doing well. (I put a picture of my Denver-based niece and nephew on Flickr.) While Bill's at work and Charlize is at school, Luann, Logan and I are gonna go do ... something. Something that'll hopefully tire him out. So I should take off.

More tomorrow night, maybe, from wherever I end up after another day of driving.

Hope the rest of your trip is equally smooth. Give us a call when you make it to L.A. We'll have to plan your weekend visit!
