four years ago today [2012.11.13]
i spent the night in the guest room at my uncle and aunt's home in austin. after being in the small camper for many nights, it was nice to have a bit more space to move about. in the morning we went to a local place for breakfast, and i remember my uncle telling me about a comic book project he was working on. it was nice to see them and chat for a bit in the morning. i left in the middle of the day to meet a home builder in a town a little east of there whom specialized in concrete earth-sheltered homes. i saw one of the houses he had built and learned about the technique.
i then made my way over to the houston area where i met a couple friends. it had been a while since i'd seen them and it was nice to see them on my way back to florida. my friend showed me his delorean which he didn't have there when i had visited a few years earlier. it looked great.. he had kept it in really good condition. he told me a story of how he took it to a drive-thru and was stuck with his arm out the little window unable to get the big drink he ordered in. we had pizza for dinner and talked or watched tv for a little while, and i spent the night in their guest room. again, it was nice to get a little bit of a break from the small space of the camper.
