Roadtripping PDX: Part Two

The goal was to leave early and be in Boise by now. But, as plans often seem to do, this one went awry and I find myself typing from the living room of my brother’s apartment in Laramie, Wyoming.

The culprit was the car battery. It faltered and died twice before breakfast, and a running vehicle is pretty important when it comes to cross-country roadtripping. So after a stop at the auto store for a new battery and some tools we were ready to roll. Of course, I personally had no hand in changing the battery… instead I figured out how to use the autotimer on the camera and photographed some birds. (I am duly ashamed.)

The good news was that this delay in departure led to a real and proper Steamboat Springs goodbye. It was a huge blessing, actually.

We were able to stop and talk and pray with some of our closest Steamboat friends and mentors, which meant we left on a sweet and content note.

“Remember when I said I wanted to move before the snow hit?” I asked as we slowed down to accommodate. “I think this is perfect timing.”

hOur updated route will now take us into Salt Lake City, through Boise and up to Portland. The goal is to enjoy the entire trip, despite the driving distance, and usher in this new season as best is possible.

Here we go!
