If we leave at 7, Google Maps says we should be there at 4:30. I figure if we allow 30 minutes for the border, 30 minutes for a lunch break somewhere, and maybe a little time for traffic, we should still be through Cincinnati before rush hour gets bad, and into Louisville in enough time for dinner.
But that didn’t take into account:
- we didn’t leave at 7:00
- that pigs would be roaming the highway
- that we’d need to find a mechanic to fix the alternator of a car in our convey
And more. No fire extinguishers rolling around the highway though, and we had some good conversation on the way down.
The good news is that we got through Cincinnati without hitting rush hour. It was long over by then.
Today we have the Band of Bloggers gathering, followed by the start of the conference. There are 5 thousand people here. They’re giving away 8 books at the blogger thing, and I heard they’re giving 18 away during the conference. Then there’s a bookstore. It’s why I brought lots of empty luggage.
More to come.
