Detours off Britta Blvd

on the road again

By the Thursday afternoon my uncle's family had all caught a cold so we were uninvited to Bend anyway. We picked a good day to drive today though, since rain all day but no snow, and Seattle is scheduled for snow again Saturday & Sunday. My dad is still not letting anyone else drive the RV even though he's complaining about being the only one driving, and I keep offering to drive! ;) We're south of Medford for the night, with wifi included at the RV campsite. My dad still insisted on using his Verizon aircard instead as I easily connected to the wifi & was showing them all Nora the Piano Cat I had just stumbled upon last night. Am I the last person to see Nora? I wonder if my kitties will play piano like that...haha! My mom & I played Scrabble again tonight after a yummy pizza dinner, but she caught up past my early 20 pt lead playing QUAD on a triple word score for 42 pts, and I was stuck with only one vowel each turn thereafter! I caught up so I wasn't so far behind & was able to play all my letters on my last turn - first time for me ever! - but she only had a G left which was only 2 pts, so she still beat me by less than 10 pts. This is two games in a row we've played until 1 letter left, which is shocking for us, but maybe it's a normal occurrence for more frequent Scrabble players? Since we play one game in a blue moon maybe we just don't know it happens more often. ;)

Tomorrow is hopefully all the way back to Roseville, but we still have to cross the Siskiyous and get past Mt Shasta...wish us no snow please!

Britta the driver

If you could drive our '62 Ford Galaxie I'm sure you can drive your dad's RV!
Have a safe journey home!

Hey, if it helps... some advice: http://www.tripcheck.com/

Best website for travel conditions in Oregon & Northern CA. Every time I drive home from Medford I use it in the winter. -Ben

Yeah, my dad found TripCheck when we were first checking around while still in Seattle. He's been having fun watching the live webcams along I-5. ;)
