after what seemed like forever, i'm finally in salt lake city! i had a string of bad luck with my flights with delays and re-bookings, so i ended up spending the night in houston at the airport sleeping the best i could in chairs. not too comfortable, but at least now i can say i've been to texas!
all-in-all it took me about 40 hours to get from my door to dave's, of which about 16 was spent in the air.
now we're off to see the mormon temple.
