I am currently in the car driving as we approach the state border of California and Nevada. To celebrate his birthday, my friend Adam decided he wanted to do a weekend getaway in Vegas. So he, his girlfriend, a friend of hers, our friend Jeb and I all piled into Jeb’s car.
Since Jeb had come down from Santa Barbara, I drove the first half to Barstow. Admittedly, it was a much linger “half” than it should have been; Friday traffic was wretched. It has taken us about five hours (with a few breaks) just to get to the border. Only about 40 min to go, though!
