Day 3: Twin Falls to No Internet

The drive from Twin Falls to Sunnyvale was long and boring, but not nearly as long and boring as the time spent waiting for ATT to install my internet properly.

For the record, it took them a half dozen techs and all the way through to Saturday evening to get me online.

Life at Apple is pleasant.

Also, it turns out I'm getting reimbursed 50c per mile for the drive out and back. Considering the number of miles I covered...

Day 2: Glendive to Twin Falls

Like yesterday, you already know what the map looks like.

Had a nice IHOP lunch, got in early enough to avoid the Sunday rush. Almost hit a gopher on I90, twit just stood up right in the middle of the road. Wasn't a big deal.

Got a little sprinkle of rain coming into Twin Falls, but not enough to wash off the bugs, just enough to get the sides of the car dirty.

Day 1: Winnipeg to Glendive

Not bothering with the map this time, you know what it looks like. Head south from Winnipeg, hang a right at Fargo.

There was a bit of a lineup at the border but I made it through in reasonable time. The south wind was a bit of an annoyance all day, but nothing to write home about. Had Arbys for lunch in Grand Forks.

I also noticed that the rear suspension in the jellybean is fully bottomed out with all my crap in the back. This might perhaps help explain why I keep bending rims.

Oh well.
