A bit of a quick entry - wonder of wonders, the Winston Salem bus depot is within walking distance of fabulous things, so I'm nibbling on good sandwiches (not out of a vending machine!), having what may be my last glass of sweet tea in a while, and charging my computer equipment. In half an hour, it's up to West Virginia, then Ohio, and at 2:55 tomorrow, finally, finally, into Indiana!

It's been an enjoyable drive - the Piedmont is just gorgeous and green, and I've listened through Chapter 2 of the unabridged Master and Commander, a gift from my wonderful godmother whom I'm seeing first on my trip of trips. I was an idiot and forgot my pillow, so we'll see just how well I can fall asleep with a balled up shirt as a headrest. :)

Take care, everyone, and to North Carolina and all the wonderful people in it, auf wiedersehen!

Aww, Winston-Salem! I could have come to meet you and brought you a pillow! Well, not really. I mean, I would have been perfectly willing, but I would have been at work (and they wouldn't have been willing to let me go.)

Now, why are you going to Indiana?

Oh wait, I just realized you wrote that at 6:59, so I would have been home (and able to meet you). D'oh!! Are you leaving NC for good???

Gah, I thought you might not be far off - we could've had dinner! But I'll be back in October or November to defend my thesis, December to graduate (hopefully), and then sometime in spring or summer, once I know where I'll be headed next, to get my stuff!

But I'm in Indiana visiting my godmother for 10 days, before setting out to visit other friends on my big trip home. :)

Oh, so you don't live permanently in NC? Do you go to ECU? Where are you from originally?

No, yes, and California, in that order. :)

Oooh, Scoobies!

I'll send you an e-mail soon with all the details! Hopefully there will be lovely snow on the mountains and none on the ground!
