Day One--Road trip
We're heading to Frederickburg, VA today. That will be an 8 hour drive.
I have the IPod connected so that it plays out of the car speakers. There's a lot of music on it. Last night I downloaded speakers who told their story at the roundup I went to. There's about 80 AA speakers, Big Book studies, step studies and several Al-Anon speakers loaded on the IPod.
We generally listen to a few speakers while driving. And we talk about what we've heard. We take turns driving. I have a conference call to do on the way up there. I wish work didn't interfere, but it's only for about an hour.
All being well, we'll get to Fredericksburg in time to walk around the historic town and take a look at Marye's Heights where around 17,000 men were killed in one day. It never ceases to amaze me what we do to one another in the name of war.
I'm looking forward to our journey back "home".
