Time Event
10:30a
Rolling
I'm heading north for Oregon now. I expect to stop at Redding for lunch, and my destination tonight is Central Point (Medford), Oregon. I'm trying no to fret about the disabled company laptop. I also hope that I can pick up one of the Giants' affiliate stations in Northern California this afternoon.

Current Mood: busy
7:37p
Redding
It took me longer to get to Yuba City than I thought it would, and then I found myself spending more time with my sister and nephew, and then with my mother later than I thought I would, so I'm way far behind. OTOH, my mother recognized the signs of my pending hypoglycemia before I did and insisted that I have lunch before I set out again, and she was right. I should have realized that's why I had the shakes. Anyway, while heading north on I-5, I contemplated calling Holiday Inn and changing the reservation to a nearer hotel, but before I knew it, it was past 6 PM and I was committed to Central Point.

I stopped in Redding anyway, it being my regular refueling point and a chance to take a break at the Starbucks. I have about 150 miles to go, and the weather is good, so maybe I won't be as late as I thought I might be.

Being as late as I was, I wasn't out of range of KNBR by the end of Giants-Padres game, but maybe I should have been, as the Giants lost their second straight game. Now it's down to one game: If the Giants win, they take the NL West, but if they lose, they'll be tied with the Padres, with a slightly complex interaction with the wild card.

I don't expect to be able to hear the game tomorrow. Fingers crossed for the Giants!

Current Mood: nervous
11:51p
Medford
Weather was good (except for about ten minutes of sprinkles somewhere between Lake Shasta and Weed) and the roads clear, and I made very good time, getting in to Medford/Central Point around 10:30 PM. I got a room upgrade to a mini-suite, which means I got the fridge/microwave after all. So I walked down to the truck stop nearby and bought a microwave meal and some milk and brought it back to the room. That's about all I have energy for right now, as I'm completely drained. I'm going to bed in a few minutes. I'm an hour north of where I have typically stopped on this trip, so I'm going to sleep in an hour tomorrow. I'd sleep even later, but if I did, I'd miss breakfast.

Current Mood: exhausted
