Road trip photos, part II

During our cross-country road trip, Dave drove most of the time while I took photos.

Here are more of my favorites... mostly from our last day, when we drove through western Nevada and entered California.

Nevada scenes:

MINI Cooper ads customized for you....



Check out this article from today's Mercury News. I think it's an interesting way to engage customers, create brand personality and voice, and generate some free PR. :-)

Cool stuff! (Just like from the movie, Minority Report....)

Road trip photos, part I

Here are some of my favorite photos from our drive from Michigan to California.... I'll post more as soon as they are available.

Our backyard and the lovely snow, the day before we left. I will not miss this part!!

Samantha, our longsuffering kitty, handled 9 hours a day in a car fairly well.

Throughout the drive were signs about closing the freeway and these barriers... it made us grateful for good traveling weather.

In Nevada were these little settlements and communities tucked among amazing vistas...

What I'm watching with TiVo Desktop

Well, we're here! We arrrived last night in Cupertino and got keys to the apartment.

This morning we headed to our local Panera for breakfast and a little Internet access. (Dave's uploading our photos as I type.)

After checking e-mail and catching up on the news, I decided that I wanted to watch some TV, so I started up the TiVo Desktop software on my laptop and watched a recent episode of Barefoot Contessa, my favorite cooking show. TiVo Desktop is handy for times like this, when I don't have access to my TiVo (still in transit from Michigan) but would like a little entertainment. I uploaded the show from our TiVo box before the movers packed up everything, and now I have something to watch while we wait for it to get here!

Almost there!

Yesterday was a long day in which we covered 700 miles from Cheyenne, Wyoming to Eko, Nevada. We drove across Wyoming, Utah and a little bit of Nevada, but covering all that distance yesterday will hopefully make today's drive a little more manageable. :-)

A lot of the scenery along the way was pretty desolate, and some was beautiful. I'll try to share pictures as soon as we get a fast enough Internet connection to upload the pics to Flickr. This afternoon we should arrive at our empty apartment -- it will be nice to be home!
