Five Things that Don't Suck, Hitting the Road Edition

Hey all--I'm hitting the road early Tuesday morning and will be driving for 2 days. Don't break into my house while I'm gone--I've got a house sitter AND very observant neighbors. Anyway, I'm setting up a couple of lists to post while I'm on the road, but let this serve as warning that the FTTDS lists might be a little spotty for the next couple of weeks. I'm all for the occasional pre-written list, but writing too many of them in advance kinda misses the point of doing them at all, you know? 

1. house sitters
2. road trips
3. getting to see my folks
4. being able to pre-schedule blog posts
5. how good the dogs are in the car
