Surprising is just how exhausting it is to drive this beast. People are stupid on the highway and this can really can't swerve or stop like one gets used to. And heavy winds do throw it around quite a bit. I've made it less than halfway to Fontana and I'm tired and want to sleep.
Worse yet, the FM transmitter I purchased for my Ipod is non-functional, so I'm desperately scanning radio stations for non-gospel. Ugh.
I just bought an Elizabeth Moon audiobook. I hope it's a lot more amusing.
