Just a ReminderI will be gone on the road starting tomorrow, the 25th, till at least the 28th. I'm going to be single handedly driving 2,000 miles, so I may take a few extra days off afterwards . My internet time will be limited to whenever I reach a hotel, but even then I'm not sure if I'll go on, might be too tired . If you need anything important though, please do send me a note. I will try my best to at least check those on my journey.See you guys soon!
