Well, I made it. I'm typing this from my Dad's livingroom overlooking the Flatirons and trying to unwind from yesterday's grueling drive. 14 hours. Totally exhausting. But not much traffic and good, open roads.
Unable to sleep Sunday night, I had been awake since four am, hit the road at 6:30. Made it to Boulder around 8:30 my time. Went to bed around midnight and got up at 9:30 this time (Mountain Time).
Today I'm just hanging out at my dad's place. Eventually, I'll make my normal trip to Pearl Street Mall and shop and to McGuckin's Hardware where my dad worked for so long. Then Friday, I'll do the drive all over again, in reverse.
