Mission Accomplished

Primary objective achieved. Cleared to proceed to secondary objectives.

What’s the primary objective? Deliver Daisy to see her little brother before it’s too late.

Secondary objectives? We’ll do a run down to Oregon on Sunday, then back up toward Eastern Washington on Wednesday.

Urgent Care

Had to stop at urgent care on Wednesday–sinus and ear pressure reached unbearable levels.

As I suspected: sinusitis secondary to the downhill from the flu.

Prescription filled, fluids added to both me and the tow vehicle, and back on the road toward the primary objective.

On the plus side, we’re now down at sea level and the pressure is quite high, but tolerable.

As an aside, the wind in eastern Washington today was so bad that we only made 160 miles on the tank; we usually make 275.

Also, I’d completely forgotten how astounding it is to see Mt. Rainer from waaay out on I-90 just outside of Spokane on a day as clear as this. Wish I’d had my faculties about me to have captured a vid or pic.
