I set out on a 10 mile journy to Little Lucca on my bike, but my front derailleur cable broke a couple miles in. Undeterred, I returned home and got in the Subaru. Fifteen minutes later, I arrived to a long line, a good sign, I decided. Half an hour later I had my sandwich. I was not disappointed. Thanks to Mike Winslow for the tip.
I got this wifi hotspot to use in schools (but we were not allowed to because it's not filtered). It's a small unit for about $100. The cool thing is that you can use any Karma hotspot (and anyone can use yours). Buy one with this link and we both get 500MB of data free. It's $14/GB if you buy 1GB at a time.
You are still a very cute man, yeah, yeah I know I'm your mom...but it is still true. You must need a new haircut by now. Too bad I am not there to take another wonderful picture. Have someone take the picture and send it to me. Now that's a good idea.

Traveled the US in a 1985 VW Camper named Walden. Why? Because I could.
I saw National Parks, rodeos, and caves. I photographed flora, fauna, geological wonders, lovers, and more than a couple breweries. I met newlyweds, hitchhikers, and hobos. I looked for what made people happy.
