Rest stop

I'm checking in from a rest stop a little outside Spokane on I-90 heading east. There's wireless here (though I have to pay $6.95 a day for it) so I thought I'd just tell everyone I'm doing well and definitely expect to be in Missoula tonight without trouble. Grabbed a sammich at Safeway while still in the Columbia Gorge. Put some gas in the tank at a little commercial refueling place (highway robbery) in a podunk nowhere town about 70 mies back because I only had a quarter tank and wasn't certain I'd make Spokane on it. I only put five gallons in ($3.19!!) and will fill it up the rest of the way in Spokane.

It's beautiful and sunny and there's been little to no traffic except just around Portland this morning. I got out about 6:30, which is probably why the roads were so clear, so it's been a blessing. There's a breeze coming in over the rollnig brown hills though it's probably about 90 degrees here at the moment. I'm about to change into my Utilikilt from my jeans so as to cool down a little. AC is okay but not really built for this, and rolling down the window doesn't help much. Been staying hydrated and snacking on a lemon cucumber from [livejournal.com profile] martianmooncrab's garden. Yummmmm. Fresh cukes!

I'll drop folks a line when I get into Missoula tonight!
