Day 11 - Nampa to Klamath Falls

First....An apology to Kim's Mom - Mrs. B of Burns, OR. I PLANNED to call you when we hit Burns today....but we had to have a tire repaired and I forgot all plans.

Second....Jared shares a funny traveling story on his blog. You can learn a lot reading your son's blog.

Third...White Truck count today - 260....can you believe that? Down from 1,000 in CO/SD.....Krista won the tally today.

Fourth...Candy - what a sweet message you sent via Beth. Thanks for your prayers...and thanks for the prayers of all....I DO stop about hourly in the afternoon.....and I have taken to buying a giant bag of M/M's for the afternoon drive....plain and simple I have a hard time driving for long periods of time on a hwy in the afternoon. ::snort::

We said a sad goodbye to our buddies and headed down the road. We have two more days of travel - today and tomorrow - and then we'll be in ONE SPOT for 10 days. YES. Yes, I cried and that was SILLY....shoot....I'll not see the B family for 3 years but that is about what we have been averaging in the last decade anyway. ::snort::

Jared and I started the day in the Toyota. Jared took this photo...jared's barn

I took this one....
...and this one...see the mother's ring? LOL

We drove through miles and miles of rolling, farm and ranch land....

I LOVE your way to stay awake!!! M&M's and good ice cream are my favorite food groups!!!

Don't get a whole lot of each since this sugar thing caught up with me. However.... if I don't eat one meal then I can do both. No really but!!!!!

What a beautiful place you will be at Mike's folks. Swimming. Alexander and Stacia will sure have some new things to see, feel, and learn. The river, and the Redwoods. NICE!

love/prayers Mom T

Crying is NOT silly! Hmph. Womanhood is good.

Woohoo, I grew up in Nampa. Miss it! My parents are there.

In other words it's important to eat M&M's to be a safe driver. Good thing you are following this important rule!
