To prepare for the Drupal Conference I am reviewing the work of Hunter S Thompson.
I pull up the Sunliner and gaze out over the Pacific ocean. I think I am almost half-way to the conference. I count 4 night sleeps since I left my hermit-acre. How far have I travelled? The paper map on the seat next to me makes it 470km. That's not much for 4 days on the road. I shake my head at my friends who tell me it should only take 12 hours to get from Melbourne to Sydney if I keep my foot down. Who wants to keep their foot down? If we don't make it this year another conference will happen next year. There is always another conference.
