Becky and I were just on the radio, responding to a listener survey about the Orange Bowl, on 101.9 FM in Amarillo, Texas. I called in, explained that we’re a pair of USC grads traveling across the country, and predicted a close USC victory. (Becky said “Oklahoma sucks” and predicted a 60-0 win by the Trojans. :)
Here’s a (not entirely high quality, but oh well) audio recording (1.1 MB) of the station’s broadcast of our call.
In addition to invading the airwaves, we also had a little fun with the lego table at Burger King in Portales, New Mexico:
We may have lost our flag, but we’re still making our mark. :)
We’ll be in Oklahoma in a little over an hour. It’ll be the 49th state I’ve been in, tying Becky. It’ll also complete the Lower 48* for me, something Becky hasn’t yet accomplished. (I’ve never been to Alaska; she’s never been to Louisiana.) Woohoo!
*I’ll pre-empt Mike’s inevitable comment by noting that there’s actually nothing “lower” about the Lower 48 — what I really mean is, the 48 continental states. :)
P.S. Interesting weather ahead? Let’s hope that “pink” zone stays north of I-40!
UPDATE: We’re out of the precipitation, for now.
