Long day’s drive, from south of Sacramento, California to Portland, Oregon. The Rose capital of the US … and the roses we’ve seen growing here so far are superb! We decided to have a fasting day today (we’ve been doing the 5:2 diet for 12 months or so, but haven’t really followed it while travelling before now) … which might not have been a good day to not eat much, but we got through it okay, thanks to a lot of black coffee (me) and Pepsi Max (Greg). We stopped often to stretch our legs, mostly at the excellent rest areas along the I5. There’s a lot of traffic on the freeway, but so far we haven’t seen many RVs or caravans. Might be a bit early for vacationers yet.
We’ll get to our friends Gail and Pat’s in Big Lake, near Mt Vernon, tomorrow afternoon.
