Dropped a futon behind a bush. Went to 3 value villages, 2 eye doctors. Fought with stupid rei employees, drove an hour in the wrong direction on I-5. But now we are as ready as we can get.
It is the beginning of our first day now. my mom has already convinced beth in the next room that she should give us a ride to the Dalles because it's sprinkling here. Thats over 100 miles of a head start. But I say... You have rain... I have poncho. But first I have coffee. With my grandma.
