I had to make a trip to El Paso today for work. Oh well. 4 hours on the road and a 4 hour meeting beats 8 hours at my desk. The meeting was somewhat informative. It continues on tomorrow, and hopefully it will continue to be informative. It will then be another 4 hours back up to ABQ on Thurs. I was actually happy that my boss let me drive. Since she has a meeting elsewhere in the region on Thurs, it would have meant that I would have to fly back. It's a really short flight, but dealing with all of the hassles still made driving a better option. Traffic on I-25 is usually very light, so it's just a matter of turning on the cruise control and cranking up the tunes. Thank doG the vehicle has an mp3 input. So now I'm just kickin' back with a brewski in the motel room.
