Not quite, but might as well be. On Friday I drove to Lubbock. Today I drove back. It's about 400 miles each way. Unless you miss a turn in a small town and drive an hour out of your way. Not that I did that or anything. Sure I used to make the drive to Lubbock a lot. When I was in college. In my 20s. When I didn't mind long road trips. Now the hour long drive to my parents' house can seem too long.
And the scenery...well it's just so beautiful. If you like brown flat landscapes.
Thank god for iPods. Months ago iTunes had a book as one of the free downloads and it's so long that even listening to it the entire drive to/from Lubbock I still have at least 2 hours left.
Unfortunately, I didn't have any time to drive around the Texas Tech campus so that I could do any reminiscing. After living in Austin for so long it was a little jarring to see the black and red double T Texas Tech everywhere. I guess I've gotten used to the burnt orange of ut. And that's just sad.
