After a miserable shower last night, I decided to pass on one in the morning and take one when I checked into my next hotel.

I woke up at 6:00am which gave me around 1.5-2hrs sleep because I was just uncomfortable. I hit the road at 7:30am. That was a little later than I had hoped, but it was still a nice early start. Once I got on the road I started feeling a lot better. It was really pretty driving past Mount Ashland and Mount Shasta.

I grabbed some chicken tenders from BK just outside of Redding and headed back out. From about two hours away from my next stop I started getting pretty tired. It didn''t help that there was nothing to look at except for the plain grassy hills that seemed to go on forever. Until I got into the San Francisco area, everyone drove like they were taking a driving test, except that everyone went 5 mph under the speed limit. It was crazy and it made me nervous because at some points I was flying past people when I was going the speed limit. It makes you think you''re doing something wrong.

I made it to the hotel, checked in, took a shower and was back on the road. I had to get to San Jose for the Sharks game. Unfortunately, I got stuck in about an hour''s worth of traffic total. I had to take a detour because the bridge I needed to use collapsed the other day. I drove right by it and it looked just like in the papers. The beams were all melted and shit.

I made it to San Jose with about two hours to kill. It''s a good thing I left a lot of cushion room for the drive. I picked up my ticket, got some food and headed inside.

It was a really cool arena. Almost every seat had a nice view. I got to see all of my favorite Wings. Unfortunately, we didn''t win, so I''ll spare everyone the details. Suffice to say that the Sharks are jerks.

I headed back and about halfway there realized I was almost out of gas. After a half an hour trying to find a gas station I stumbled upon one right across from can you believe it, an In-n-Out Burger. I got the double double with cheese. It was yummy.

I made it back to the hotel in one piece thankfully. I''m going to read and go to sleep.

I hope that these updates suffice. I have to type them before I go to bed, or else I fear they wouldn''t get done. There is more to say and more that I did, but I''m too lazy to type it when I''m so tired. Also, please excuse all spelling and grammatical errors.
