August 27 - Springville, Utah

At least twenty people showing up last night that we'd worked with many years ago. Great Indonesian food and good fellowship made for a wonderful evening playing catch-up.

We had an 8 a.m. appointment with the Discount Tire store in Nampa and were on the road at 8:10 a.m. - no kidding! They worked with the manager at the Discount Tire store that I normally deal with and have us set up with a pair of tires until we get home when I expect we'll make yet more decisions. The whole story after we get the final selection in place.

There aren't many pictures today since the camera is acting up. It will take pictures but the LCD screen isn't lighting up so it's like shooting in the dark. Much of the day was through high rolling hills with cattle or wheat predominately, and occasionally a deserted homestead. We didn't even stop at interesting places like Rattlesnake Pass to see why it got its name. Obviously, some rain today.

We stretched the day to get through Salt Lake City ahead of the afternoon rush hour instead of hitting the morning rush hour tomorrow.

Home for the night is the Walmart in Springville - 400 miles from where we started. Obviously, someone didn't get the message about not obviously 'camping' when staying at Walmart! Always handy to have a coax from the TV antenna to the window to use as a clothes line.

Gotta go - BJ made pizza...
