Because I'm Sure New Orleans Loves Republicans.

Tomorrow I drive to New Orleans for the Southern Republican Leadership Conference.

Since I am staying with friends, it is pointless (and also arguably dangerous) for me to arrive prior to my group. And since one friend is particularly famous for his fashionable-lateness, I have a feeling I'll have plenty of time to finish packing tomorrow.

There are many up sides to traveling by car instead of flying. My favorite? Nothing is forcing me to downsize. I am a chronic over-packer and it shows.

Meeker is giving me music for the trip since I've had an iTunes crisis. I'm not sure if he realizes I am mostly-fond of the type of music suited for dramatic bathtub suicides, but I'm excited to hear what he's put together.

A warm, sunny drive to New Orleans should definitely beat the cold, late-night drive to CPAC. I'll keep you posted.
