Greetings folks. Thanks for the concern.
I am finally in Portland. Yes to the no signal for the cell or data, and yes to the high winds, rain and yuck. Boy, I always pick the best times to go places
Today was actually the worst driving day, the winds were ridiculous, the rain even worse (Like Bob said, like driving thru a carwash) I stuck to the well traveled route and came up thru Lincoln City and on up the 18 etc to I-5 @ Tualitan. Not without hydroplaning a couple times. That stain on my drivers seat will clean up. It's an element.
Needless to say, but I will anyway, getting my brake controller installed was the single most important thing I did before hitting the road. What a major difference, and possibly may have saved my hide a couple of times.
The second I crossed over the 205 bridge into Washington to drop off the dogs, it just..stopped.
I am safe and sound in my friends driveway now, managing to take full advantage of the laundry this evening. There is a tarp over my trailer.. I have some leaks
to deal with, I think.
BUT, for now, I look forward to meeting all of you tomorrow. I don't look forward to my dentist, Dr. Evil Pants, before I go to Kennedy school!
I am surfing on some poor neighbors network with a poor signal. As soon as my friend calls his wife and lets me know the password for his I will be more active online.
