This is my favorite photo from the roadtrip to Pittsburgh. The sunset behind me was so spectacular that I had to pull out the camera while driving a 17-foot U-Haul at 75mph. The pic may not have truly captured the sunset, but it does pretty fairly represent the U-Haul. Some more pics are here.
When I arrived in Pittsburgh, after several, painful days without net access (at one point interrupted by a stint on the floor of a truck stop's video game room -- swank) I found that the head of the program I'll be starting in the fall had e-mailed everyone and told us to start talking to each other. We range from a girl just out of undergrad to a guy who's lived both out of his car and at an ashram. Cool.
