I am safely in Utah, and have been having fun today driving my mom wurtmann and my sister jatg around.

My poor Forester got a-SALT-ed by UDOT, due to last night's icky snowstorm. I need to run it thru a carwash before starting back.

Looking down the weather track, the storm tracked right down the interstate from Idaha. Twenty miles to the east or to the west, and I would have been fine. Grrr.

One very mildly amusing story. I stopped once for gas in Idaho, in a little teeny town who's name I couldn't remember, and MIGHT be able to find again only by backtracking my milage log against the map. It was literally a one road town, paralleling the interstate. The combo convience store / grocery store / diner / garage had old style gas pumps, that measured gas out in tenth of a gallon increments, and had clockwork dials that physically dial back to 000.00 when reset. The girl that took my money was was way too young to be looking at *me* that way. The two country boys in dickies who were buying gas in front of me gave me a weird look too, but not the same one. I guess they don't get many folk stopping for gas there.

I used to have this unrealized life dream about being at the root of one of those American cinematic myths and roaming from town to town via hitching and trains, taking odd jobs here and there and knocking up farmers' daughters throughout the west and midwest.

Just FYI, you know. Happy Christmas!

This life dream is not unique to you. :)

Tho I could do without the "odd jobs" part of it. Heh.
