Andrew’s sick, Catherine’s tired. So we’re driving home in one day. That’s 733 miles.
James and I are driving back to Los Angeles today. We’re not running any cameras at the moment, basically because while I now have two nice cameras with better optics and a nice external antenna for the EDGE card, I am having trouble finding a video4linux 2 web cam application. I’ve got some code which does the job, but it needs more hacking to make it usable, and frankly I’m more interested in getting home to the wife and kids for now.
So, if anyone has a v4l2 web cam application recommendation, feel free to let me know and we can use it tomorrow for the LA to Mountain View drive.
Another video! This time from Los Angeles to Tempe, along the I-10 E, thru the desert and part a nuclear reactor.
Today we stopped off at a house in Los Angeles where one of James’ friends lives. We’re on the way to Tempe, Arizona — that’s another six hours or so away tomorrow.
Well, we’ve set off on our trip to Tempe, AZ. The first leg of the trip is to drive down to LA today. There we’ll meet up with one of James’ friends, and have dinner and so forth. Remember we’re tracking the trip online, assuming the 3G coverage is good.
Tomorrow we will be driving to LA. The day after we continue on to
Tempe, Arizona for a week in the Phoenix office. Then we drive home.
We got bored this afternoon, so you can track our movements here: http://blog.jdns.org/traveltracker.
