For those wondering: I did indeed make it though not in record time. That said, I'm pretty glad I took two days to make the trip with a totally loaded car than just doing it in one.
Since arriving in town late afternoon yesterday I've scouted out the appropriate places:
- an appropriate establishment to buy beer
- a place I can get food
- the local EB Games
The cable doods were here this afternoon and I've appropriated one 72"x30" folding table and a folding chair on the cheap so it's almost like civilization again.
