So yesterday I drove from Des Moines to Oklahoma City. I think the Best Western there was doing the same thing as Motel 6: they have wireless internet, but not in every room. So I couldn't log on.

Today was fraught with crap after crap. I got stuck in horrendous traffic jams in Dallas, and wasted an hour or two trying to get onto I-45. Then as I approached Fairfield, I started having trouble keeping my eyes open, and I was feeling a little carsick. So I pulled off and parked at a truck stop to take a nap. But I still felt carsick. So I decided to stop for the night. So here I am in a Holiday Inn Express in Fairfield, TX, and I'll be home tomorrow.

Very wise of you to rest up before continuing.

Taking off the rest the night instead of driving. Get home safely.

I've heard people claim that it's impossible to get carsick when you're driving, but I've done it before too...usually by driving in an, uhm, overly exuberant manner in hilly terrain. ;)
