3.4 miles (round-trip) is a very long walk.
Why was I walking 3.4 miles, you ask? I was checking out an apartment in southern Claremont, the second in a series of housing possibilities for Nelson's move to California.
(Oh, yeah. I don't think I mentioned that earlier here. But am I excited? HELL YES!)
The apartment in question is inhabited by a Pitzer senior named Glenn, who seems a nice enough fellow and who needs a roommate. I have pictures of the place up on my Flickr along with pictures of the room in northern Claremont I visited on Tuesday. Glenn's apartment seems to be the best match, so I think Nelson's pretty much set on it. Cool beans. :)
