In which we name things and drive like crazy to beat the weather forecast
We set sail yesterday from American Trail Gear Headquarters.
|Diana got the motorhome as a birthday present last summer, |
but they've never gotten around to naming it.
We fixed that today, and christened her the Barbara Lee
This morning, we blew a fuse while simultaneously making coffee and heating the rig. Oops.
It's okay! We have a manual and tools...and a flashlight...and my reading glasses.... Phew. Catastrophe averted, and Sherri got a cup of life-giving fluid before we hit the road.
Then we discovered that the rig's GPS system was uncooperative.
But it's okay! I brought back-up!
|Thank you, Google Navigator via Aarene's phone.|
Yes. I'm that kind of nerd. I thought you knew.
|Nerd at the helm!|
The rest of this post is pretty much photos we took on the road. Sherri used my camera while I drove...uh...mostly....I didn't use the camera when the road had any traffic on it, anyhow.
|Iced-over Upper Lake Klamath|
|Ominous clouds in south-east Oregon|
|Interesting rocks...California, I think.|
|More interesting rocks. I would like to ride here someday.|
|Blue sky, gusty winds.|
|Thawing lake. California.|
|More clouds and high desert. Nevada|
We beat the weather and arrived safely in Reno. Tomorrow, I'll seek out a museum (and a library, probably) to entertain myself, unless AERC staff is able to let us in early to set up the tack shop and book-signing table.
Meanwhile, there's pretty food on the table.
We're warm and parked and comfy, and didn't have to drive in sn*w.
We've decoded the local wi-fi, and (you already knew this):
Life. Is. Good.
