So in the past week I was able to visit most of my immediate family, eat some good food and travel through something like 13 states!

Now I’m back in Denver and started a new job TODAY! Here are some pictures from my 2000 mile test drive with my new Xterra from last week. I left Lugoff, SC on Thursday afternoon and arrived at my place in Denver by early afternoon on Saturday afternoon. I took a 3 hour nap in a Birmingham, Alabama Walmart parking lot on Thursday night, a nap in Memphis, Tennessee at a friend’s place on Friday night and stayed the night with friends in Oklahoma City for part of Friday night. (I just might have the record for longest test drive as well as longest continuous karaoke!)
