Now that we are about to hit the road for the four hour drive to Los Angeles, I wondered how other people driving to and from Turkey Day festivities spend their time. Often we just talk or spend the time watching the scenery. Last time we drove to San Diego we rented Fragile Things by Neil Gaiman, an audiobook of short stories read by Neil himself. It was wonderful, but we only got through half the book. We are planning to listen to the other half on this trip. But I also have a couple of CDs (Holiday Music, Female Voices) from swap-bot.com if we get tired of listening to stories. If I am in the car by myself, I will generally listen to NPR, especially Marketplace. But getting any stations in the middle of the desert is difficult, so road trips always need an iPod and CDs.
I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving and ate all the turkey they wanted to.
