Oregon: June 27, 2003

A continuation of the cross-country I shared with Ben in the summer of 2003....


Day 20--Friday, June 27, 2003


I awoke around 9:00 and stretched leisurely in the comfortable bed in the elegant guest room Brian had provided.  When I arrived in the kitchen, he was already fixing breakfast--omelets with swiss cheese and bacon, bread, more bacon, and fresh fruit, including raspberries, Rainier cherries (an odd yellow color, but every bit as good as the familiar Bing cherries), and local strawberries.  Ben and I decided that we were going to have a hard time going back to our "road far" after all that!


The morning passed quickly as we both showered and packed up.  We had done four loads of laundry, so all of our clothes were clean.  We had also run all our camp dishes through the was in the dishwasher in the "butler's pantry," so we really felt like we were getting a fresh start.  Brian and Jeremy were ready to go downtown to "the club" so Brian could do physical therapy for his leg, so we all left around the same time.


As usual, our day included plenty of driving.  I, however, missed most of it.  After I slept for a long time, we stopped in a little town to get our digital pictures burned onto a cd, since the memory card was full.  However, WalMart was out of burnable CDs (really, you would think they would just open one of the packages that they sell there!), so we went to a Kodak store at the mall.  Instead of the "five minutes" that the man behind the counter had promised, we ended up sitting there and waiting for what seemed like an eternity.  After that monstrous stop-over, I went promptly back to sleep when we got into the car.
