    I'm in a truck stop just outside Syracuse right now, making good time! ETA to Ohio is 6pm with one more stop after this and no unexpected stuff.

    On the up-side, looks like the only rain no the trip will be in Butt, Montana.

    Well, things do tend to get a little muddy when you go through the Butt.

    I'm doing my final prep now, and then I'm going out for lunch with my girl, running one more errand, then dropping her back off home and heading to Aurora to pick up Mark. After that we drive to Gurnee to move into Ken's car, and after that, to Wisconsin!

    7 hours till departure to Wisconsin waypoint. Hopefully by the time we meet up with the CCST, I'll have the IRC server running. I already tested the internet and it's a go.

    OMG!

    I suddenly feel under-dressed for the occasion. I'll have to find something at home...

    On another note, assuming my phone battery can handle the load, I'll be tracking our progress via GPS, which all are welcome to follow in real time: http://www.instamapper.com/ext?key=825918144740010368
    It won't update until around 7 or 7:30 CST tonight when we begin our trip up to the waypoint.

    EDIT: Scratch that, I just saw Moe's sticky about following all the trips. Seems GPS is already en route, no need for two. I'll tweet from the road or something.

    The first day is about to end and it's been fun, but in a few short hours we all meet in Fargo, a magical place filled with tasty sandwhiches, showers, and 1200 sf for pure liquor heaven.

    Strap in everyone, shit's about to get real

    Checking in from Team Ramrod, where I am enjoying Bob Jackass' air card and you all are enjoying nothing. Unless you have iphones, you silly youngsters you! Hopefully we can get the CCST Lan Party working at the next stop.

    We have photo proof that an adult novelty store exists that not only sells "beer lube" but also has a bakery.

    And in case the lattitude doesn't update, I'll have mine going http://www.instamapper.com/ext?key=825918144740010368
    for as long as I can.

    So I'm still on the ccst =) Though its by my own fault... on the road I saw that it was only a 20 mile detour to see Niagra Falls, so I took it... and got back on the road to find that the highway out of buffalo was closed due to a fuel tanker tipping over. 3+ hours later, I found my way out of buffalo.

    I then took a detour when I saw that I was passing by Seneca Falls, and I took a picture next to the ruins of the church at which it was held. Also scored some cherry bawls at a nearby gas station... woot!

    Anyways, eta for arrival in NH has increased to 5am from 10pm after all was said and done. =)

    So I smacked my alternator with a flashlight in North Bend and it worked the rest of the way home. Woot for anger driven fixes.

    North Bend is a magical place.

    Okay, maybe not, but Cascade Comics and Games is a great shop. They gave Spook a bunch of posters they couldn't sell because they were sent to them folded (they were promo posters).
