where in the world was

The cross-country drive is one of the great American experiences. My most recent road trip was a perfect complement to the cross-country trip we made five years ago this week. That's when my family and I packed the car in Burbank and drove to Knoxville to start a new chapter of our life. I had been living alone for three months in the Windrush Apartments, a location which was unfortunately mentioned in the news last week.

Instead of taking I-40 straight east from Barstow, I convinced my wife that we should take I-70 because it would bring me through more states that I had not yet visited. We saw the World's Tallest Thermometer on our way to spend the first night of our trip in Las Vegas. The natural scenery was spectacular, especially through Utah and the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. Our most memorable scenery in Kansas was more unnatural. We stopped off at Prairie Dog Town to see the six-legged cow and we took a slight detour to see the World's Largest Ball of Twine in Cawker City. In Missouri, we toured Mark Twain's boyhood home in Hannibal. As our trip neared its end, we took a rest stop in Metropolis, Illinois, to see the giant Superman statue.

Before I forget, let me say thanks to Weird Ralph for submitting my blog entry with the photos from last week's trip to Digg.com.

Just a note to let you know I love your blog and I think you are the best thing to happen to radio around here in a long time. I just love listening to you, Marc and Kim. Only problem is sometimes I get mad at Marc for picking on you. I feel like I know you personally just by listening to you and reading your blog. Keep up the good work!

I have seen the Superman statue too. I wish I could have had my picture made with it though, It was very cool.

And your morning show rocks too. Although I don't really like the password game.
