Left the house @ 0500. Decided to go through Portland (or close enough) since that way is a lot â€œflatterâ€ than taking 18 to 90 and going over the mountains. A bit longer, but not really much.
Except, sitting here just outside Caldwell, Idaho 12 hours later it all felt really long. Especially at 60 mph average. Just over 500 miles today.
And, yes, dragging this heavy assed Caravan is a royal pain in the ass. Iâ€™ve already spent near $100 for gas just today. (More I think.) But, checking into this RV park and having my â€œown placeâ€ pretty much makes up for it. Still, I need either a smaller Caravan, or a larger truck. Thatâ€™s just what it boils down to.
Called SWMBO and let her know where we are. I do miss her. Trips are always better with her along.
Anywho, Iâ€™m gonna kind of watch â€œPassengersâ€ and hit the rack.
