Dinner With Daniel

We got on the road about 4 PM. I reserved a room in Avoca, Iowa, which was pretty clearly as far as we were going to feel like driving today. Then I realized that among the various mathoms we were carrying was a DVD that tarkrai has solicited for filker0 to use in setting up some stuff on the Pegasus website. "Hey," I said, "Isn't he in Iowa?"

So I called tarkrai, got filker0's cellphone number and a couple of hours later, we were having dinner with him just outside of Iowa City. The mathom was passed, we had a brief cellphone chat with spiritdance, then bid our friend a fond farewell and got back on the road.

We pulled in here just before 12:30 AM which was just fine, all things considered. And the motel has wireless Internet access and an indoor pool, along with a noon checkout. As you can see, we've investigated the first; the second will follow in the morning.

Edited: because I was apparently too tired to tell time when I wrote this originally...
