On the road

Here we are on the road trip to Salt Lake City. Thanks to my Lotus Notes client I'm writing this from the back seat of the van at 3pm and it will get posted later tonight when we arrive a the hotel. We left town at about 7:30am with Keith & Barb and we're on our way to the USANA International Convention. This will be our first and we're looking forward to what we'll learn and experience. We're on I-94 heading west on the same route I'll take in two weeks to go "Biking with the Boys" on our fifth annual bike trip to the Maah Daah Hey trail near Medora, ND. The big difference this time is that the sun is up. On the biking trip we'll be driving through the night to arrive for a pre-dawn start on the day for a hard day of biking.

We should arrive in Billings at about 8pm and get a good sleep for the second day's drive which will be a little shorter, only 9 hours as opposed to todays 12 1/2 hour haul. There has been quite a bit of construction on the road, but he delays have been minimal. On several stretches there have
been state troupers enforcing the construction zone speed limit, so we're being careful now for sure.
