Things Overheard on the Great Geek Road Trip
If you’d been a fly on the wall during our 1,400 mile road trip, you might have overheard the following…
“I’m trying to get us outta here and you’re taking this apart now?!?“
Heard as Shag was loading the truck while Serv was dismantling a desk.
“And I thought they smelled bad on the outside.“
Heard as the moving truck cabin filled with the rancid scent of road kill.
“Don’t worry, she’ll hold together…You hear me baby? Hold together.“
Heard after hitting a curb quite hard in the moving truck.
“This is no cave.“
Heard as we raced 85 miles an hour down the interstate in a 17 foot U-haul truck, on a narrow lane, as we squeezed between a semi-truck and a concrete barrier.
“It’s not my fault!“
Heard when the electrical system decided to freak out on the moving truck. Heard again when we took an “accidental” detour.
“Let’s hope we don’t have a burnout.“
Heard starting the truck after the electrical problem was fixed.
Heard as we passed various folks.
“Boring conversation, anyway.“
Heard after a cell phone call was dropped due to bad reception.
You’d think we’d have said at some point, “I’ve got a bad feeling about this.” Oddly enough, it never came up.
