Rohit called me last night at 11pm Pacific Time from the
Tennessee-Arkansas border. He'll be out of net connection today
("Welcome to middle America, what's the Internet?"), but expects to
reach Albuquerque (and the rebirth of Net) this evening instead of
tomorrow. (Andrew, Rohit asked me to tell you this in case you need to
mentally psyche yourself up for his arrival.)

He'll leave tomorrow and straight shot to LA by Wednesday evening.
Baltimore Monday morning, Los Angeles Wednesday evening. That's Rohit.

I told Rohit to expect 2400 miles and 37 hours. Hey, I was close. When
we crossed the country in July, Michelle and I discovered that the 40
was made for going 80.

Ah, Diet Coke. Using only the finest filtered, imported antarctic ice
floe water and specially ground nutrasweet. And those bubbles, aren't
they french?

Nothing like getting paged going 80mph down the highway...

Trust me, it still won't make any sense to you.
