|The 'work' shirt calendar|
The full time work was over (just weekends now) and I had some stuff to take care of back in Washington so I left.
I realize I set out to full time/travel & turned into a migrant worker really fast. Working is a hard habit for me to break!
|Maybe I want to go somewhere else?|
There are a lot of 'movers' on the road going in both directions. I have to guess of course unless I get a chance to ask them but it's not that hard to guess, if they are pulling a car on a U-Haul dolly with a U-haul truck & the car has pillows & other last minute bedding in it it's a good guess they are not going camping.
I can't say if there are "more", I don't spend enough time on the road.
As I headed west the gas prices went up & so did the elevation but I kept chugging along.
|The road just goes on and up|
I found that my carburetored RV engine was not happy much over 5000 feet, over 8000 feet it was real slow going, there is a lot to be said for electronic fuel injection when you are dealing with the altitude.
|I learned a bit|

I was again reminded of the families who made this trek 170 years ago and the major physical effort they put out to do it.
|that never seems to end|
When you get to the Columbia River you know you're getting closer.
