We got on the road yesterday at about 10:30 am. Minor delays caused by morning, hormone surprises adn the usual pre-trip disorganization prevented our planned 9am departure.
9 --> 522 --> 405
We stopped off at the Arby's off Exit 2 on 405 almost to the Airport. They managed to mess up jnanacandra's order of "A number 7." This is why I never order fast food by the number anymore.
405 --> 5
From there a straight shot to royalbananafish in Portland. We hit there about 2 pm. The goal was to get to her by 12:30pm... So we were at least traveling at the speed we wanted. jnanacandra drove from Portland to Eugene and then I took over until about Medford. We had a lovely dinner at Red Lobster and then I learned how you can't buy Pseudophedrine in Oregon. Grymble.
royalbananafish took over driving after dinner. We got to see how the Prius handled mountain climbing and got all the way to Redding, CA.
We settled in at Red Lion. this is a chain I'd not previously heard of. What was cool was that they took my Alaska Air card and my AA card and got us two Queen sized beds in a non-smoking room with free wi-fi for an AMAZING price.
So, (since this has been slow typing) it's coming up on 10am. The girls... still asleep. Today we head for L.A.
The trip has been on a sort of time frame. So there hasn't been "Stop and socialize time"
If there are people along the trip for the way back... maybe it would be possible. Go ahead and comment here and we'll try to have a rough idea of where we may be when. It's pretty much... hop on 5, get off 5.
So.. waves to all... It's time to wake the Thelemic Babes and head off
