Oh Crap!

The subject comes from what I said when asked what the subject line should be by my dictationist (THAT’S ME! Emily!) I was trying to return to Southbound I5 from South Center and it’s confusing.
Now we’re on Southbound I5 heading for California. This trip came together with very little notice yesterday, and we’re still not totally clear on what will be happening on the other side of this leg of the trip. We will be spending time with my high school best friend in Apple Valley, and will be welcoming home a marine from Iraq. We also don’t know exactly when we will be coming back. If possible we would like to link up with a certain web developer friend whose name starts with MA and ends with RA. (If you happen to be a web developer friend whose name starts with MA and ends with RA you should expect a phone call later this evening when we have more of an idea of what we’ll be doing when.
This will be my third trip into California and the first time I will be driving back out of California. I may even be posting pictures of my dictationist next to Olive Trees. (Did you know Olives grow on trees?) Thus far the biggest challenge has been finding bathrooms at convenient times. The express lanes have been our friends.

  1. Sounds Egyptian 🙂

    No they don’t! They grow in large glass jars! Sometimes the baby ones grow in small glass jars.

    Hope you crossed your legs passing through Oregon. I remember finding rest areas in Oregon was a challenge for me.

    Sorry that my life right now doesn’t allow for much spontaneity. Maybe on the flip side?

  2. Oregon rest areas were pretty good in terms of spacial distribution. Butt ugly and periodically scary, but every 20-50 miles once you get through the big towns. Getting over the passes was pretty rough on the car — it’s a bit grouchy about steep grades.

    We’re getting by okay. I’m hoping I can make it to Boron before I need to nap again.
