We were on our way down i80 in Wyoming just past Laramie on Monday … and red lights started flashing ahead: I80 is closed.

A couple checks of weather and news and there was a pretty large pileup, a hazmat burn, and all routes through southern Wyoming are now blocked.

So, we headed back toward Cheyenne to go the northern route.

The flu holds on: I’m all kinds of stuffed up now. My ears seem to be stuck at 6000ft.

Found out UPGRAYEDD isn’t charging the trailer. No idea how long it’s been that way as I’ve honestly never checked. Only noticed when I turned on the house lights and they dimmed noticeably when the water pump ran.

We overnight in Sheridan and pick up some parts to run an electrical bypass.
