In Salt Lake City
|Move to NYC–Day 1|
We have arrived safely in Salt Lake City. Alas, we had to cancel the dinner with friends because, even getting up at dawn, we still didn’t arrive at Beth’s until after eleven pm. Meanwhile, you can click on the photo above to look at an album–unlabled–of the past two days.
Things we learned today.
- The truck goes about 60 to 65 mph, except up hills, then it goes 30, if we are lucky, for an average of 50 mph.
- Marlowe, the cat who escaped outside last night, today exhibited signs of having kitty agoraphobia. He spent the first part of the day with his face pressed into the corner of his cage. He’s doing better now.
- Maggie thinks that being in the van just means that she gets lots and lots of laptime.
- Salt Lake City is much farther away if you can’t go 75 mph.
- Weigh stations are not very exciting.
- Wild fires make great sunsets.
- Idaho roads are very bumpy.
- Bumpy roads will cause the ferring guard to break on a motocycle if you are using it as an anchor.
- Motorcycles are heavy if you have to tip them back upright.
- When buying bottled water, make sure you select bottles with lids that screw on instead of ones with a bottle cap.
