Pretty low-stress day, considering we packed up ourselves, closed up the condo and drove 5 hours to start our 2, 3, or 4 month getaway from the winter. It was a beautiful, uneventful drive out of Bend to 395 South. We love the 395 drive through western California.
T'Chat had her ritual vomit about one hour into the drive. It happens every trip on the first day, then NEVER after that! Now we prepare; the towels and cleaner were at hand at the start of the trip.
Covered 315 miles today. We split the driving. I, Robin, like to take the first leg every day, as that’s when I’m freshest.
We both put our earbuds in and listened to podcasts along the way.
Me: Two Crime Writers and A Microphone ~ hilarious Scottish guys interviewed Ian Rankin, Mark Billingham and Eva Dolan. Stay Tuned with Preet Bharaha ~ who interviewed retired Russian chessmaster Gary Kasparov. You are Not So Smart ~ On how immersive storytelling can change one’s thinking about a topic.
Ross: Rhonda Patrick, PhD ~ interviews with Dr. Judith Campisi (cellular senescence), Dr. Satchin Panda (circadian clock and food), sauna benefits.
Plusses: Gorgeous sunset! Didn’t get in trouble for carrying our citrus fruit into California. We admitted to carrying in 3 lemons at the border and were cleared to carry on.
Minuses: We seem to have sprung a leak in our toilet. Luckily it’s in the fresh water intake side…nothing icky. We’ll work on fixing it at our next destination.
Dinner: Homemade split pea soup and homemade chicken salad over spinach! Plus (my first sugar since before our fast) ~ one Seeley mint chocolate piece.
