Couple of checks off the to-do list

Completed my self-evaluation for LEAD. Put together a preliminary version of my new resume. It's weird to be putting the GSB on it when I have yet to attend my first class.

My Pathfinder is in the shop today getting all tuned up for next week's 2100 mile trip (oil lube filter, tire rotation, brakes etc). My '02 is going to roll 40K somewhere in Montana! The car cover I ordered came in yesterday (to protect my baby since my parking spot is under the El track...maybe it'll deter the theives too, but that's probably wishful thinking). Bought a 2005 US Road Atlas and I've been checking out the construction hot spots online. Looks like there's a bit on roads in and around Yellowstone and since that's a pretty major side trip, I think I'll skip it.

I think I've got pretty much everything wrapped up at work now, just doing a final proofread of the manual I created. 4 months went by a lot faster than I thought it would back in April.

Road trips are sooo fun...unless you're by yourself :-(

Unfortunately, that's the way I've gotta do it!

wakechick,
maybe you should buy an XM radio for the trip...

Nice suggestion. Bought one back in March for the San Diego to Seattle road trip :) http://wakechick.blogspot.com/2005/03/boys-are-shady_28.html

I also have my iPod w/ an FM tranmitter, a few books on CD, and a large supply of sunflower seeds. I'm all set.

I remember my first GSB resume... I felt like such a faker. :) It didn't seem real at the time. I just (on Saturday) uploaded the latest version to the database. It seems more real now.

Do give me a call when you get into town. I'll email you with the new mobile #.

wakechick,
I made the mistake not to have an XM radio during my drive up from OC to WA this past March so I learned it the hard way. I wish I would have known about your blog back then because it could have influenced me into making the purchase before my trip. I’m moving back in 2 weeks and this time I will have it installed :-)

Enjoy your last weekend in Washington. Its’ so beautiful out and I have a feeling you’ll spend some time at the lake. Saying goodbye sucks and I wish you good luck with that; especially if your family is here :-(

Hey Wakechick - you're going to want this website bookmarked in case you're making any road trips outta chi-town. It's really really useful.
