Steve's trip to Jason's graduation and beyond travel blog

The truck is packed and ready to go. I just have to put my ice chest and box of electronics (GPS, iPod, Zune, camera and all the necessary cords and chargers) on the passenger seat and off it is. Except the first stop will be at the dentist. I had a bone graft on my jaw a while back and it got infected. The dentist wanted to verify the infection was on the wain before I left. The only time that worked for both of us was first thing Thursday morning. Luckily my schedule is pretty flexible so it's not an issue.

I'm looking forward to getting on the road. The first day will be pretty familiar territory as I head east on I-84, the same route my friends and I take every summer when we go to Montana. I'm not sure how far I will get tomorrow so either late tomorrow or Friday morning instead of turning north to Montana at Mountain Home, Idaho my route will continue east.

I'm loaded with AAA travel guides so should have no trouble finding lodging along the way. Why doesn't he sleep in the back of the truck you might ask? Because it's full! We recently moved my Mother from her 1 bedroom apartment in the assisted living wing of her residence to her current studio apartment. This resulted in a lot of stuff being left over. My niece and nephew were here from Kansas to help with the move. I volunteered to bring to Kansas in the truck any of their Grandmother's things that they might want when I came for Jason's graduation. Little did I know that this would turn into 16 boxes plus a trunk, 3 lamps with shades and a few other odds and ends. We didn't agree on what was an heirloom and what was stuff, but I didn't fight too hard. Once I leave Kansas I'll have plenty of room for sleeping in the truck.

It looks like the weather is going to be cloudy with sun breaks at least that's the current forecast. We all know that can change.
