DeathDealer (a long-time friend from UT) was nice enough to invite us over to his house, where we spent the night.
He and his wife (who shall remain anonymous to protect their privacy) served us a three-course meal including Boston cream pie, to make us feel at home. We then got shamefully owned in Guitar Hero by his son Shocker and spent some QT with the family. The dogs Sobe and Scooter took a liking to us, and it was great to finally hang out with DD in person. The comfort of a friend's home was a welcome change from the back of our car.
Thanks to the whole family for bravely welcoming us into their home.
