Thanks, guys, for all the great book and music ideas. I leave tomorrow. My flight leaves Manchester at 11:30. After 8 hours I will arrive at Newark, where I'll hang around for three hours, then fly to Salt Lake City. I will arrive there at about 8 p.m. MDT or 3 a.m. GMT. I'll try to sleep, get up really early, visit the gym in the hotel, eat breakfast, catch the shuttle to the airport, pick up the car, then drive for five hours. Is there an easier way? Yeah, but it costs a lot more.
I spoke to my mother last night. She's ill again with another virus. I can't wait to get there and make her some chicken soup and give her some TLC. Hopefully, that's all she'll need.
With any luck, I'll be able to post from there.
