The famous line from Animal House bears no resemblance to my present-day journey, but I can’t but help to draw the comparison in enthusiasm.
I love driving, and I love my daughter, so having the two of them to myself for the next 2 days is optimal.
We’re on our way to Champaign, Illinois in a mini-van full of furniture we’ve cobbled together from Craigslist to move her into her first off-campus apartment. I’ve even found a patsy, er, uh, friend to join me for the trip back to help with the driving.
I’ve got a rented Honda Odyssey and I think they still sell gas along the way, so I’m set.
I plan to stop to check e-mail and make uploads every few hours for a break. I’m gonna hate giving up my 3G network for the slower Edge (E) Network in most locales…but Starbucks stores are good for free wi-fi’s.
For recording, I’ve got my Zoom H4n, my laptop, a AKG C3000B with USB adaptor, and Adobe Audition 3.0. I’ve even got my iPhone with Blue Microphone’s “MIKEY” if I need to get an audition in down ‘n’ dirty. I use the Poddio app on my iPhone to edit on the fly.
So look here for postcards from the hiway the next few days. My blogs may not always refer to the voice-over business, but life on the road. I’ll at least try to post lots of good pics.
