[Updated. Accidentally published previous version of this before finishing last week.]

Traveling more than I ought to this year. So far I’ve taken some short trips nearby and also been to DC, Austin, Charleston, Hartford for various things. Off to Chicago soon too. It feels great to escape for a while even though there’s lots of RealJob work to do and I can feel unsettled. Here’s a selection from the first 24 hours of a recent road trip.

Whut? Keyless ignition on my rental car. Makes my 18-yr old car seem even older!

My secret shame on every road trip.

Good morning, Hartford!

Happy Easter, if you celebrate that! And have a great week!
