Good day, all! I apologize for missing the past couple weeks. Somehow I got distracted from doing these. Here’s my attempt to get us back on track! Welcome to the weekly pan-Kinja cross thread that’s hosted at Whitenoise, Hackerspace, Groupthink, Powder Room, Odeck, Tay, Oppo, Backtalk, Clashtalk, CrossTalk, Gawrker, and The Salad Bowl.

Some blogs host more often because that’s where the hosts have authorship privs. If you’d like to host, please let story645 know! Hosting involves posting the cross thread, including links to all the membership blogs in your post, and sending them an email/tweet/kinja notification with a link to your post.

Now that we have all survived our holiday food comas and Spring Breaks, what are your plans for the upcoming summer? Any fun road trips, meets, conventions, or other activities? Maybe where you live it’s actually turning into winter?

Around June every year I take a road trip to a smart car convention somewhere in the country. This year, we’re headed to Athens, Alabama!

Here’s the official video I made for the 2013 smart Nationals:
