I got a job at a ranch a couple hours west of Dallas. I needed to start Monday/Tuesday, so I drove from Asheville, NC to Dallas, TX in one day. And, yes, making the trip was the same Mabesmobile that has no air-conditioning. Also accompanying me was my 90 pound golden retriever (Boomer), whose breath and general muskiness did very little to improve in-flight conditions in the cabin. That said, I had Conway, Loretta, George, and Willie to keep me company on the way home, and I was actually surprised that I made it home at a decent hour. I left at 8:15
in Asheville, and made it to my parents' house by 10:20. It was great to be back.
I was not surprised that Arkansas continues to suck.
