It Is Finished (Day 129)

November 26th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

There aren’t a whole lot of interesting, good, or even somewhat pleasant things to say about the ride down the 15 from Provo to SoCal. It gets particularly annoying after you enter Nevada and are in quasi-California traffic from Vegas on into the megalopolis. Sort of an anti-climactic final ten hours of the trip. For the sake of color, though, here’s a picture:

provo-streetIt was either this or the one of the gas station in Vegas.

For the sake of continued triteness, here are some numbers:

  • Miles: 22,245
  • Photos Taken: ca. 12,000
  • Gallons of Gas: ca. 1,350
  • Blog Posts: 224
  • Days: 129(-ish)
  • States: 48
  • Waterfalls: 37
  • National Parks: 19
  • Lighthouses: 15
  • Grad School Apps Worked On: 9
  • Great Lakes Visited: 5
  • Caves Explored: 4
  • Bears Seen: 3
  • Fish Caught: 3
  • Times Snowed On: 2
  • Transmissions Blown: 1

Thanks for following along — it’s been fun.

    The final blog seems anti-climactic, as well as inaccurate because according to your GPS you did not head back to California on I-15 on Day #129. Rather, you hung out in Provo for a few days. Were the days in Provo some sort of time wormhole?

    Yeah, well, I’m more interested in “truth” than “fact” anyway. I mean, *maybe* a discussion of going to Albertsons to buy donuts would make for interesting copy, but it’d be hard to argue that it fits with the overall spirit of the road trip.

    I thought you were going to announce you had set a thermonuclear device somewhere along the route and dare us to find it. Are you in SoCal? Let’s meet up…text me

    Who’s to say I didn’t?! I guess I haven’t dared anyone to find it. Yet.
