I actually laughed out loud a few moments ago. And I no longer feel like I'm mired in quicksand. Much better. Still sad, but not bone crushingly so.
Something to look forward to-we're meeting Wirecutter in Bodie this weekend-the most well preserved ghost town in Cali! I'm pretty excited about it. You know how when you visit a place, and someone says to you "Oh, did you see such and such?" And you say "No, I had no idea such and such existed?"
Yeah, that won't be happening. Wirecutter has been there so many times he will be an excellent tour guide.
Of course, I'll post pics of our adventures.
