Fifteen hours is too long

New Gypsy Trip TagI’ve already mentioned that we had to make a big push today to get back on track so I can get home and get back to work on time. Well, that big push just about killed us all, I think. It wasn’t enough that we were stuck in the car for 15 hours today, but we were stuck in the car for 14 of the most boring hours of the trip.

I honetly can’t even tell you exactly where we were, only that we took I-80 for a while and ended up in Idaho. We just keyed the address for the campground into Sheila and took off at seven this morning. We got to see some more mountains on our way out of California, but once we hit Nevada there wasn’t much else to see. And to make matters worse, Nevada has the noisest highways I’ve ever been on. Someone needs to show them how to cut grooves in the concrete so the tires don’t whine so much when you’re it.

I think the prettiest thing we saw today was the rainbow in Idaho about an hour from Idaho Falls. The rest of the way was farmland. And bugs. Millions and millions of bugs.

I’m something you don’t see every day: A person under 80 who walks around with oxygen everywhere she goes. I have Sjogren's Syndrome, an autoimmune disorder which, with the help of my stubborn refusal to go to the doctor, caused some pretty deep damage to my lungs. My lack of breath slowed me down for a while, but I'm back to adventuring - just with Gus, my little oxygen tank, in tow. This year's goal is to complete the 52 Hike Challenge and get myself into a healthier state of being. Join me on my quest to become oxygen free!
