I made it. It was a rough trip. I was trying to minimize the pain by splitting it into two pieces -- Saturday driving and Sunday driving.
Saturday driving was supposed to be 5 hours. It wound up being 9 hours because they closed down one of the more important roads I was sort of counting on not being closed down. Sunday I left at 8:30ish and was supposed to arrive around 7:30 (Central time). It wound up being closer to 9 because I had to drive through a pretty heavy rainstorm that apparently spawned a tornado once it hit South Carolina.
But I made it. Expect fun things to appear on this site soonish.
