We're going to Spring Training on Friday

Dex and I are driving out to Spring Training on Friday.  I'm trying to estimate the number of stops we'll need to make in order to properly plan out our schedule.  With my weak bladder and Dex's beef jerky cravings I'm thinking 14 stops seems about right.

Last time I went I flew into Phoenix.  Is there anything good to stop and see on the drive out to Peoria?  I saw that someone mentioned that there are Traffic Cameras that catch speeders in Arizona. That's a helpful hint that I'm glad I found out before the drive.  What else do we need to know?

Dex was wondering if anybody can recommend any good books on tape that we can download?  We'll probably need a break from playing slug bug for a few minutes.  We favor really sad books on tape, but baseball related books would be nice too.

Who wants souvenirs? If you want us to send you a postcard email us your mailing address and we'll send you one from a truck stop or a brothel.

At this point, since I've run out of things to say, I'll recycle my treasured stories from my last trip to Spring Training two years ago to get you me psyched for this trip.
