I am back at work, had a great time at the GPs house and had a wonderful Christmas. I got tons of candy and got to hang with my familiy and got 2 more people addicted to Civ! heh. The rental car was a great idea. It was a comfort knowing that the car was not going to break down. I made it back in great time. We left San Angelo at like 4:30pm and picked Tyler up in Ballinger and were back on the road at 5:17pm. We hit Austin just after 8pm, and were in Houston and dropping people off at 10:38pm, that is also stopping for fireworks for like 15 mins just outside of Austin. Michael played Civ3 for a bunch while we were drivin. Tyler slept most of the way and I zoned.
