Tempe Bound - Because it might snow...

So, today we left Denver after a wonderful breakfast provided by the family we stayed with. Of course, right away I fell asleep for a few hours while Trevor took the wheel. I woke up somewhere around northern Colorado when we stopped at a Sinclair gas station. The two had their picture taken with the dinosaur.

The rest of Denver and all of Nebraska was boring. A lot of the locals were out on the lakes ice fishing, despite the fact that it was more than 60 degrees outside.

After we got to Omaha, we went to the long-awaited Chipotle to wait for Paul to return our calls. We later found out that Paul wasn't even in the state. (Oh Paul!) Austin still ended up going to Paul's house and got some hospitality from Paul's mom. We dropped off Trevor at a show his friend was playing at the Rox in Omaha.

After those two were taken care of I got back on the road and drove the last 7 hours of our road trip.

I learned a few things while coming back:

1. Gas stations in Iowa suck and the people there are mean and take forever
2. Don't have Chipolte if your going to be in a car for more than 7 hours
3. Minnesota is cold.

Playlist for the car:
Bon Iver
Circa Survive
TV on the Radio
The Mountain Goats
Motion City Soundtrack
