Today was another boooring day of driving. We left Kansas City around 8:30 (notice a trend here…), and headed east. Really no trouble along the way, and it was a little boring. I did enjoy going 85 in a 60 after St. Louis, behind two ‘chumps’, a Mustang and a Subaru Outback, both a ways ahead of me and matching my speed, so cops would be more likely to get them instead of me.
I did finish up Dead Set, the British zombie apocalypse miniseries, which was pretty damn fantastic to be sure. And, I even got to listen to Everytime I Die (the Big Dirty, great album), probably to everybody else’s disdain. Really though, I couldn’t take much more of the emo stuff the other guys like. It just all sounds the same to me: bad. I’m not going to say the music is unfit for listening, it just grates at my eardrums, and I can’t take much of it at a time.
Anywho, we hit Brookville, OH, just outside Dayton, around 6pm (Eastern, finally!), and met Jason’s aunt and uncle, who are very kind and generous, enough to board us for the night. Dinner was great too, sure beats most of the restaurant food we’ve been eating, though Jason did forget to mention I’m a veggie. It didn’t prove to be a problem, since there was plenty to eat aside from the meat. Also, cookies and pie afterward! I’m not usually a pie fan, but I couldn’t refuse fresh peach pie, and it turned out to be delicious. May have been partly pre-assembled (canned filling, frozen crust?), but still a great end to dinner. Conversation was good too, it’s not often adults treat us young adults as equals, but this was a case of the exception. We told them about ourselves, our ambitions, our travels, anything that seemed interesting, and nothing was awkward or the like.
Anyway, hunkered down now, watching Death At A Funeral (more British, more death!), prolly gonna hit the hay soon, and then tomorrow we hit the road for Rochester, our final leg of the journey, and home for at least a day.
