I'm at a Best Western in Coalville, Utah. On the one hand, I'm glad I got past Salt Lake City tonight -- on the other, I wish I'd waited for daytime to tackle those hills and curves between SLC and here! I think time will not allow the side trip through Medicine Bow National Forest I enjoyed so much last year. Unless... well, we'll see.

My rough plan is North Platte, Nebraska Friday night; Iowa City Saturday night; Ann Arbor Sunday; my mother's place Monday; and Virginia on Tuesday. I wish I could speed things up a bit, since I'll get to Ann Arbor too late on Sunday to see anybody, but there you are. Maybe I'll make better time tomorrow since I won't be spending an hour looking for AAA and the Radio Shack. On the other hand, I'll make worse time if I don't get to sleep! This losing an hour every day thing is going to be tricky.

I got my own picture of this thing this time (since I knew it was coming), but got to the Great Salt Lake too late for pictures. Otherwise, it was a lot like this post in reverse, only without the Red Elvises. I chuckled at "Deeth/Starr Valley" again. Bastet was, once again, a gem. She's lying on the table staring at me right now, for no discernable reason, but she hasn't bitten me once since we started this trip.

Okay, I'm off to bed.

Despite getting a rental car which was much smaller than expected, necessitating my leaving a lot of stuff behind, I made it to Reno and am now in the same hotel -- maybe even in the same room -- as I was when I wrote this post. Also, I'm pretty sure the same guy was working the counter (I remember, because when I gave him my credit card information he said, "Awesome.").

No major problems once the obvious space issue was worked out. AcrosstheHall!Teacher and her friend and their dogs and [livejournal.com profile] hecubot and his son helped out and I actually did leave the city, despite shaky protestations that it would never work, I have too much stuff, I've screwed up the whole thing, and I should just take my cat and go live in a cardboard box. I maybe should have gotten more sleep.

I did, however, get pictures of [livejournal.com profile] e_juliana with AtH!Teacher at Sodini's, my cat with the two dogs (she's hissing), and Eric and Jay at the convenience store across the street (they gave me a tiny bottle of champagne!). I may post them pretty soon, assuming I can track down the upload cord in my mess of cables.
