Moving day! (revised again)

We are busy preparing for our trip...trying to fill our ipods with a wide variety of listening material. Mark just picked up some audiobooks from the library (3 hours of beginning german lessons and 9 hours of F. Scott Fitzgerald's This Side of Paradise). some comedy cds? podcasts? any suggestions?

Friday September 12th: Moving day pre party (location TBA)

Saturday September 13th: Moving day (pick up truck, load up cate's stuff in ny, drive to new haven, pack up mark's stuff, one last pepe's pie)

Sunday September 14: leave new haven, overnight somewhere in ohio

Monday September 15: overnight in iowa city, ia (with brett/tim/jack)

Tuesday September 16: drive as far as possible

Wednesday September 17: celebrate jim's birthday with him in his hometown of Fallon, NV at "the greatest bar in the universe, which is this old combination saloon and Basque restaurant."

Thursday September 18: arrive in santa cruz

here is our tentative route

i did some searching on chowhound for suggestions along I80. doubt we will stop at more than one or two of these places, but at least we will know where to find the best italian in cozad, ne (bella italia, run by an egyptian ex-new yorker who fell in love with a woman from nebraska).
