Got up and immediately started to battle the checkout time.

“Checkout Elongation” is an artform. I think my record for a “late checkout” is 3pm at a Red Roof Inn, on the outskirts of Pittsburgh. I was swamped with work and kept calling the guy each each and pleading with him for a little more time. That final request he simply offered a, “You are pushing it, kid.”

And with that, I knew I was gonna have to pack it all up and call it a day.

But not this day, as, I had a ton of stuff to catch up on so I called down and reserved another night. I got the AC nice and cranked, and hammered on shit for the better part of the day. Lots was conquered: Many rounds were sent off for approval.

Later on that afternoon I took a little drive down into Fort Thomas, Kentucky north by northwest up a river road that straddled the Ohio River. So nice.

311. “The bridge over to Kentuckyville.”
312. “Email received here.”
313. “That Ohio River.”

Found the set from Rainman, where Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman walked down the road lined by towering trees. Very, very nice little stretch of land out there.

314. “The Rainman Road.”
315. “Convent.”
316. “One more of that big river.”

My night mellowed out with some general relaxing, wildness, intensity and awesomeness.

Guess what? I’m going to meet the guy who inspired that movie (along with dozens of other folks) Kim Peek in about three weeks. His life has changed dramatically since that film was made, and he and his dad currently tour the country talking about “savant syndrome” and disability in general.
