Get your own Visited US States Map from Travel Blog

One time I drove from North Carolina to Colorado. I bet you can't guess what my route was.

Here's a pathetic map of the countries I have been to (though I was only in London, Auckland and Paris changing planes, so the really shouldn't count...)

Time to get fired up again

Well, it's been a while since I've been to Mexico, but I'm going to rectify the situation this week. I leave for Mexico on Thursday for a week. It's an easy trip with some diving buddies. We're going to enjoy the sun, the water, the margaritas and sound of people speaking in Spanish. It's a much needed break. I'm just hoping that the gorgeous weather we're having north of the border doesn't disappear before we get home!

I haven't been posting much the last week. I had some sort of virus or food poisoning thing that knocked me out of commission from Tuesday to Friday last week. I'm feeling much better lately. Just trying to rehydrate.

Look for pictures from Mexico in a couple weeks. I'll post some here.

Mexico Lindo

Here are some beautiful photographs from a woman with a wonderful set of photos of Mexico. These photos make me want to go yesterday already!

You can see all the photos in her set here.

Sir Chi-Chi of the Round Table

Sometimes, when you're going through your scuba gear, you run into a hood that needs to be modeled. Luckily, Chico volunteered to model the scuba hood for everyone, and by "volunteered" I mean we grabbed him and forced it on his head. Doesn't he look happy and confident?

Leader of the Free World nearly kills himself and Dick Cheney

Apr 10, 2007

Credit Ford Motor Co. CEO Alan Mulally with saving the leader of the free world from self-immolation.

Mulally told journalists at the New York auto show that he intervened to prevent President Bush from plugging an electrical cord into the hydrogen tank of Ford's hydrogen-electric plug-in hybrid at the White House last week. Ford wanted to give the Commander-in-Chief an actual demonstration of the innovative vehicle, so the automaker arranged for an electrical outlet to be installed on the South Lawn and ran a charging cord to the hybrid. However, as Mulally followed Bush out to the car, he noticed someone had left the cord lying at the rear of the vehicle, near the fuel tank.

"I just thought, 'Oh my goodness!' So, I started walking faster, and the President walked faster and he got to the cord before I did. I violated all the protocols. I touched the President. I grabbed his arm and I moved him up to the front," Mulally said. "I wanted the president to make sure he plugged into the electricity, not into the hydrogen. This is all off the record, right?"

Oh my goodness.

Alanis Morissette Rocks "My Humps"

Apr 2, 2007

When this song came out by the Black Eyed Peas I thought that it could be one of the signs of Revelation. I mean, how can lyrics be THIS BAD? It must mean that the end of the world in coming.

Apparently Alanis Morissette thought the same thing, so she made a version of the song as if it's actually saying something worth listening to. These lyrics are but one of the reasons I hate Fergie.

The Megalodon has arrived!

We are now officially one step closer to moving to Mexico. The rebreather is here.
