You see and experience quite a lot during a cross-country trek. You also have many hours where your mind wanders, has random thoughts, or plain just goes blank. That said, I will chronicle some of these thoughts and non-thoughts here. I will spread them out as to not make the whole process overwhelming for myself or tedious for the reader.
Here we go:
- Spokane, what little I saw of it from the road, seemed nice - nicer than how I had pictured it.
- Lake Coeur d'Elaine in Idaho is absolutely beautiful. It is a great place for a cabin if I ever have the resources to purchase a cabin. I probably won't, so the point is moot.
- Driving with a roof carrier (mine is soft) really lowers your gas milage.
- I saw signs for "pre-owned cars". I know they mean used cars, but to me pre-owned means before being owned - in other words, new. Unless pre-owned is just an abreviation for previously owned. In any case, I don't like the term. They should just say used.
- It is hard to drive for eight hours after you spent a morning cleaning out a house and packing a car.
- Music during Day 1: Beck - "Guero", The Offspring, Los Abandoned.
