I packed up and headed out. Really hard to leave Diane behind, but Ill be with her in ten days. Youd think after more than fifteen years of being together that wed be fine apart, but we seem to get more inseparable every year.

I made it to a Wal-Mart parking lot in Spokane and spent the night. Pretty cool of Wal-mart to allow that. I’ve never gone through Snoqualmie Pass before–beautiful.

I got an early start with some Billy Joel to get the blood flowing. “We didn’t start the fire” just as the sun came up. Went through Coeur d’elene (sp?), what a pretty area. I’ll have to make it here some time when I can spend time. I got as far as Sheridan, Wyoming and stopped in a campgrounds.
