    Kind of. I used to get paid to look at fields and appraise their yields for insurance purposes. Now I just supervise.

    The worst drive I have taken was from New Orleans to upstate South Carolina after the sugar bowl a few days ago. I was also hung over as fuck. It doesn’t get any worse than that guys.

    Drove Columbia, SC to Fairfield, Idaho and back.

    Highlights: Badlands, giant wind turbines, Yellowstone, Tetons, Arches, RMNP, and Box Canyon State Park in Idaho.

    Lowlights: motherfucking Kansas, St. Louis, and Rushmore.

    Left that game with 5 minutes left. Was surprised when the guy driving didn’t go to hotel but kept driving to SC.

    Drove to Key West from Clemson for spring break #neveragain.

    Driving the length of Florida to get to Miami is always tricky. You get to FL and are happy to be in Florida, and then you find out Florida is a very long state.

    I’ve done that exact same drive in a 40’ Ryder truck towing a car. Topped out at 66mph, and STILL managed to get a speeding ticket when I burned a construction zone. Thought I was going to be stranded in West Texas wasteland more than once when you go 80+ miles without seeing a gas station.

    In terms of surprisingly awesome drives, the western third of South Dakota is pretty great. The badlands and black hills are pretty special. The section of interstate through Medora ND and teddy roosevelt national park is pretty incredible too.

    I don’t recall the highway name, but whatever I took down to the eastern side of Yellowstone was absolutely gorgeous.

    I might be a glutton for punishment, but I’ve always liked driving Los Angeles to Las Vegas (after you get past Victorville). It’s peaceful, meditative, and a little bit sinister. Easy to see how someone could be “made to disappear” out there.

    As far as interstate driving, my favorite might be I-81 between Roanoke and Winchester. Love the Shenandoah Valley.

    Just drove this in December. I have Virginia in my territory now. I drove instead of flying. Glad I did. Stayed at Hotel Roanoke which was a bad ass hotel. Their pub/bar use to be a WWII officers room.

    I’ve stayed there a ton! Neat place and history. A nice break from the cookie cutter Hampton and Hilton Garden Inns (but you still get HHonors points).

    You talking about coming through Cody, WY?
    I haven’t been West of Utah either, but we made the drive to Bar Harbor, ME a few years ago via Upstate NY, VT, and NH. That drive was beautiful, and going up Mt. Washington is pretty cool.

    Also, solid thread title change.

    I believe so. Took us through some public lands and I had to wait on some cattle crossing. Didn’t care one damn bit.

    Camped outside of Yellowstone that night, then backpacked Paintbrush Canyon in the Tetons the next couple of days.

    Work has mostly taken me where I’ve driven. Haven’t landed a job in the northeast, but I’d love to give Maine a try at some point

    Stole this from @statebird, who saw it in a WSJ article while trying to figure out how to trade his burnlounge earnings for bitcoins.

    ****

    Despite the secrecy, the Journal was able to review Saban’s defensive game plan for his most recent game: Alabama’s win over Clemson in the College Football Playoff semifinal last week.

    The 56-page document is a window into the immense amount of preparation that goes into one college-football game. The first half breaks down Clemson’s offensive personnel, formations and plays; the second half is for diagrams of the defensive plays Alabama planned to use in the semifinal. There are also three pages at the end with handwritten notes that match Saban’s penmanship. The game plan was the result of analyzing six Clemson games: five against the best teams the Tigers played this year, plus last year’s national championship against Alabama.

    The most important takeaways are written like this: “WHEN THEY WANT TO GO FAST,” the game plan says in big, underlined red font, “THEY HAVE BEEN ABLE TO SNAP THE BALL IN UNDER 15 SECONDS.”

    Then there was even a page with emojis. Two enormous nose emojis, to be precise. In football, the player who lines up behind or between the guard and tackle is known as the “sniffer back,” and Alabama’s coaches wanted their defense to watch Clemson’s sniffer back carefully. They believed his actions could tip the type of play the Tigers were running. So they circled this player and wrote “TRACK THE SNIFFER!!!” between the nose emojis.
