one unanticipated fun thing about traveling with jaime is that i'm guy with the pretty girl that all the guys get jealous of at the truck stops.
|it's like the ocean!|
we stayed last night at brady's parents' house. they were great, very welcoming and happy to have us there. i talked movies briefly with brady's dad then we went to our rooms. as i was lying in bed, enjoying the comfort, jaime sent me a text: “this bed is awesome!” i smiled.
this morning we spotted montana, wyoming (yeah, didn't see that one until about a hundred miles from the state), and louisiana, which i didn't see but jaime spotted. we're down to three license plates: vermont, hawaii, and rhode island. due to some road construction, we were merged to a two-lane highway, which had me pressed up against the wind shield, trying to spot the one-foot plates on front of the cars moving at a relative 160 mph past me. i thought i saw vermont and hawaii, but couldn't confirm them. it's even trickier when each state has several variants. who knows, maybe some rhode island family is vacationing at wendover?
|somehow, my road always |
leads me back here
we're on disc 15 of 17 on hp7, the trip odometer says 1,932, and we're staying in salt lake tonight. today we have no planned sights to see except the country around us.
the road goes on.
