Left the house in Santa Clara at 4:30am, drove to SFO for a flight to Denver and then on to Kansas City. Weather was just below zero C with slight snow flurries. Drove about two hours west to Manhattan, Kansas where I'm now in my room at the Ramada. They have free wireless internet throughout the hotel, and was very easy to connect without any stupid hoops to jump through. Will probably hit the sack early, cause very tired after the long day of driving.
