What a wasted trip to Salt Lake City. I should NOT have gone. Nothing was settled. Nothing had been accomplished. Nothing was going to be done. My Nephew had been picked up by the Feds (I donâ€™t know why) and my Neice was adamant that no burial was going to happen without him. MAYBE next Wednesday. Maybe. All that time & money (and almost getting killed once!) wasted. I donâ€™t know what I was thinking.
The trip itself was okay. I was so tired after 14 hours of driving (cause Iâ€™m OLD) that I stopped in Tremonton, Utah for the night. (Western Inn.) Had trouble sleeping, of course. (No SWMBO and too many car/truck noises that Iâ€™m not used to.) Got up early and made it into SLC by 0800. Spent a couple of hours there and had to leave. Had to leave. So I visited my friends in Midway then headed home.
Made it to Baker City before I had to stop for the night. Damn, Iâ€™m getting too old for this crap! Did get to drive through a 15-16 mile downpour after entering Idaho. Yes, for 15-16 miles it rained so had traffic slowed to 35-40 MPH. No lightning or anything, just really hard rain.
So I be home now. Back to the grind; as it were. Glad to be here too. I get to pick SWMBO up at the QFC @ 1915 and will have to tell her the whole thing.
Traveling is just not much fun without SWMBO going with me. I sure did miss her.
