Well we chose not to set the alarm so we were a tad delayed in getting up this morning.
On checking our blog comments we discovered that friends Larry and Marilyn were also overnighting in Yakima, as Larry said, it is a small world. We were on the road by 9AM. Stopped at noon for lunch and to check on client emails and make a few calls as it was a Friday. Got diesel in Ontario, Oregon for 4.089 cash per gallon, the best price we found in this state. Prices are higher in Idaho.
The plan was to spend the night in the Wal~Mart in Boise, Idaho via exit 50! Don’t go there. There is no room for a tear drop trailer never mind us. No room at the inn for us
So back to the highway and a further 45 miles along. However we encountered a construction slow down and so instead of setting up at 5PM we arrived at the wonderful huge and empty new Wal~Mart in Mountain View, Idaho at 6PM. Finally set up in a balmy 58F! Today was a huge 401 miles, close to average for us.
No further tire beeps although the one RV tire is down 3 lbs since Tuesday. We will get it checked before heading into Mexico. We have had some hot/cold water issues with the shower which Colin resolved. Bottom line is that the shower head was so corroded on the inside that the water was not mixing so we were either screaming from hot or cold. As of 10PM tonight that has been resolved. Milles gracias mi amore.
Ken asked why we chose this route via Pendleton, OR, Idaho to Jackpot, Nevada and south? Mostly because we have errands in Las Vegas and in Lake Havasu City plus I5 is so very very boring and the road is horrid. Bad enough we take it home in April.
