There's also promise of a BBQ, so that alone merits the trip.

We've been making good headway on the DVR, helped by the fact that a lot of the shows are going on winter hiatus. Last night, we watched Castle, NCIS and Sons of Anarchy, which had an expected (but still shocking) ending.

Time to charge the laptop and sync the iPod.
