Today, I got a lot of graphic design work done, like a whole lot. I got some things done around the house.
I researched Butte, MT because we are driving through there. It has cool history. I want to spend a day wondering around checking out the sweet architecture. Here is the Wikipedia article.
Any way, today I also cleared off my flip video camera, & man did we have fun this summer. I got video of us in Mexico, it's so pretty there. I got a couple of cool clips of the cenote (another good google word, amazing swimming on the Yucatán Peninsula.) I got some footage of us picking blueberries & black berries at black balsam on Meg's birthday, Antonio goofing around with a buddy. I need to utube some of it.
In other road trip news, the car is cleaned out and I started to pack. I am working on burning CD's for the car.
Here's the master list of what we are bringing on the trip.
- A new road atlas, maps of Denver, Portland & Seattle
- a navigation system (borrowed from friends, thanks Jon & Hilary!)
- my macbook, two ipods with headphones, (one classic filled with tons of music, & my new ipod touch, with games/apps)
- Meg's film camera (rollei medium format), Meg's digital camera, (nikon D300), my flip video camera (mino, not high def)
Clothes & Stuff
- A week's worth of clothes, ranging from tanks tops shorts for exercise, to north face long johns to wear under jeans and big winter coats. It will be nice and cool in Montana. We plan on doing laundry at least once a week.
-three pairs for shoes each. Tennis shoes, nice shoes and car shoes. Specifically for me, Black high top Puma, green low top pumas, and adidas flip flops for me. Meg will bring adidas tennis shoes, flip flops and something else, and probably only wear flip flops unless we are walking. Yes, even if it's 30 degrees outside. She is crazy!
Food & Drink Stuff
-a small cooler, for daily food stops at health food stores, and ice for cold drinks. Dr. Virgil's natural soda. Diet Cola version for Meg, Diet Black Cherry for me. These sodas have no real sugar and no fake sugar. Amazing. Check them out.
- a bunch of gluten free crackers, cheese puffs, nuts, & other gluten free stuff you can't get just any where.
- camping stuff (tent, sleeping mat for 2, 3 blankets, a sheet, pillows.) We plan on camping for a couple days in the Badlands National Park, in South Dakota.
-LSU gear for both of us, plus pom - poms for each of us. There are three games while we are on the road and we don't plan on missing one single second of the games.
one bag for everyday, then another bag with make-up & fancy hair products.
See the crazy photo of what the packing looks like. I will take more photos as I finish up the packing.
we are both totally stoked for this trip.
