Finally on the road

Tuesday, July 27th, AKA Day One..

Today I did 352.9 miles, after a late start (11:30 a.m.) I had to take care of a few personal task before I left. It wasn’t easy doing these last minute task, as it finally hit me what I’m doing. Got no job, no house, not much of a plan for the future and on the downside of 38. I’m lucky that the last few months I’ve been too busy to realize this. Once I was on the road, the shock wore off.

On to the ride – I left Seattle heading down I-90. Just after the Columbia river is Hwy 26, which goes through Othello. In Othello, I had a great lunch – a plate size burrito – for $5. Spent a little bit of time chatting with the owner about his business. A really nice guy who was working his backside off to make his restaurant work. Wish I had gotten his name or the name of the business.

After lunch I continued down to 195 which will take you Lewiston, then Clarkston where I spend the night. The entire trip was hazy, from I assume the various fires going on in Washington State. Too bad, since there was a lot of beautiful country to see, and I would have liked to photograph.
