right during rush hour traffic, i did my first freeway blog yesterday!

wow. what a feeling.

unfortunately, after i bungied it up and got on the thruway to go take the photo, the borrowed camera i was using ran out of juice!

i had it set on "ready to take a picture" as i drove towards the entrance ramp and got on the thruway.

since it was gonna take at least a minute before i got to where i had posted the sign, i took a quick picture to make sure that the camera wouldn't auto-turn off before i got to the posting site.

right then, right after that picture click, the camera started beeping that it was now out of juice.

what the?!

anyway, guess what picture it randomly took?

a huge billboard!

but what's even funnier is that when i finally swung around at the next exit to turn around and approach my blogging from the other direction (hoping that turning off the camera for a few minutes would somehow give it enough stored energy to take one quick photo) when i got near my sign, it was flapping in the wind, totally unreadable.


anyway, i was able to retrieve it for reposting.

i then went home to charge up the camera -- but by the time it was ready, dusk was approaching.

and that was my very first freeway blogging experience.

i'd guess that between twenty to a hundred drivers could have seen the Impeach sign during the short few minutes before it somehow came loose on one end.
