I've already done 260 miles today.
Going to try to get to Cheyenne, which is another 419 miles, but it doesn't seem likely I'll get there, esp because I lost an hour due to time zone change. I also mailed my tax returns in Wendover, UT and otherwise dawdled (and got a late start).
Park City is cool because it has a Starbucks where I can get a reasonably high-speed connection so I can add the metadata to our Rebooting The News podcast and re-upload. It's a good one. I want to get it out there before Twitter makes their announcements.
Update: Here's the MP3 of the podcast.
I'm listening to a lot of podcasts on this trip. If you have a favorite episode of a favorite show could you do me a favor and paste the URL of an MP3 as a comment to the post. I'll download it tonight and give a listen tomorrow. I'll be doing another 800 miles each day or so for the next few days. That means a lot of listening time.
The best one I've listened to so far is Chris Lydon's interview with Michael Lewis about people who predicted the financial collapse.
Second-fave: per Jay's recommendation, the This American Life episode on the same topic.
I'm also getting a lot of great baseball stuff, with the beginning of the season.
Driving in the west is easy. The best part of the trip.
PS: Bonus, there's a Whole Foods here. I'll be eating fresh fruit the rest of the trip and nuts and granola. Hola. Getting tired of Egg McMuffins.
Update: I made it as far as Laramie. 618 miles. If I cover the same distance tomorrow I'll make it to Des Moines.
