Week 34: Aug 17 - Aug 23
The Week, Mostly In Order
Trying to get wrapped up at work so I can relax on the drive. I don’t thing it’s going to happen.
Finished building a portable standing desk at lunch today. I based the design on a few different commercial products I’ve seen. They are all about $150, I made mine out of some leftover plywood in my garage.
Of course, everything blows up at work on the last day before vacation
. Instead of taking off a bit early to get packing done, I got a 4:30 meeting added to the calendar.
Good news: C’s COVID-19 test finally came back. It’s negative. It took 32 days.
Day one of driving. Not too bad. Made it to Flagstaff,
. The boy held up pretty well, no meltdowns!
Day two - Flagstaff to Tucamcari,
. Another successful day! We stopped for a hot second at the Petrified National Forest, but didn’t really go in at all. Just walked around the visitors center and gift shop
Day three - Tucamcari to Tulsa,
. Three days in the truck, and the family is hanging in there perfectly. Great attitudes all around. Also, I’m pretty surprised to see near-universal use of masks in public. All the hotels and restarurants have required them, and most people are complying. I would
to sit in a restaurant, but we just grab food and eat in the truck or in the hotel. I don’t trust people
Day four - Tulsa to Highland,
. Still going strong. We’re staying with a friend tomorrow, so it’ll only be a short drive in the morning, two, three hours tops.
Day five. Short drive this morning, and spent the day in a house. The boy and dog are loving the extra space. One more long day of driving tomorrow, then a cuple weeks with the parents so they get some time with the boy. They haven’t seen him in months.
