Actually, you can spell "Indiana" without "ass"  
mileage: 0769
weather: windy
pace: fast

We have made it to Indiana! Exactly one third of the state postcards available at a roadside truck stop have pictures of animal behinds and clever sayings regarding how there are animal behinds in Indiana, and this is really funny. Also, there are road signs I have never seen before that say "animal present when flashing, next 1/2 mile." How does it know? Is this for escaped cows? Inquiring minds want to know.

Actually, I just googled that. It's a sophisticated wild animal detection system, yay. I have also discovered that there are MULTIPLE WEBSITES dedicated to archiving images of and commentary regarding all the various highway road signs in Indiana. I... wish I had an appropriate comment for that.

spockette is as GODDESS for having illegally shared Star Trek audiobooks with me. YAY! My mother sends much flailing gleee your way as well.

Ohio has the prettiest sunsets in the world, omg.

Oregon Trail was the best computer game EVER. Your icon rocks.

Hurry up and get your behind over here already.

Be careful fording the river. ;-) I have very fond memories of playing that game in my school library.

Wow! You're really on your way. Maybe I'll see you in IM more once you're officially on my side of the country.

I have the urge to sing "On the Road again" for you! ;-)

*is loving that you're keeping us posted*

You have driven 769 miles? OMG, your country is HUGE! That's almost the entire length of Britain - we're only 850 miles long. :D

I send gleeee! in you and your mothers direction also!

*bounces for you* I played Oregon Trail in your honour yesterday, but I died of cholera.

Little Red: oregon trailmylittleredgirl on November 12th, 2005 04:23 am (UTC)
omg IT IS HUGE!! I have now driven so much more than that and am only a third of the way across! I will be driving 3000 miles!!

DUDE. I want to play Oregon Trail so damned badly, because I have forgotten all the clever sayings and so my posts are not as funny as they could otherwise be. ;)

I AM SO SORREEEEEEE!! I am in Nebraska now, but I totally waved and squeeed when I passed the sign to Joliet!

Forgive me?? I will come and visit you some other time, but I was kind of running crazy trying to get as many miles out of the way as possible today, and was with my mom, and and and... *lovelovelove!*

OMG! Look at the snow!!

Oh I envy you doing that trip, I'd love to drive across the US.

Oh but take care... *loves*

Actually, I didn't take that picture! I found it on the internet -- it was too dark by the time I got to INdiana to take a photo myself. There was no snow on the ground yesterday -- we had some flurries and dealt with bitchloads of rain on the first day, but today has been clear and warm!
