So the thing that made me nervous wasn't the kamikaze traffic maneuvers of my fellow travelers, oh no, I could barely notice them because I was busy trying to see the small print on my mapquest instructions on the other seat with the wrong glasses on. I tried out mapquest's point to point to point feature and it's nice but it printed out really tiny instructions. At one point I was afraid I'd gone 40 miles past an exit but finally realized that no, I was on the right highway--it's name had changed and I just happened to stay in the correct lane. I was surrounded by trucks in my little Miata so I couldn't see the signs very well.
I guess if I get well and truly lost I'll finally wander into a service station and ask around. I'm almost like a man in my reluctance to ask for help if I'm lost. But people often give confusing directions that only make it worse!
Hoping to see home tomorrow night. Tonight I landed in a soothing comfort inn that is doing it's best to live up to the name. I saw it through the deluge as I drove by, did a quick u turn and found an beautiful and even affordable haven. This would cost twice as much by the coast.
Dave has been getting apartment applications and viewing possible new homes for us. I hope we find a home as comfortable as this room!
