Back to the Bay
It took me a little longer to finish packing this morning than I expected, but about 10:30 I set out for the Bay Area for a two-week stint — the first full two weeks I'll be staying in the RV, as the last stint had BayCon in the middle of it. Before I left, Lisa pointed out one of the things she did to the Rolling Stone
last night when I was sleeping.( Gathering No MossCollapse )
I stopped in Sparks to trade my casino affinity card at the Nugget in for the new program, and this got me a $5 promotional credit. I was pleased to be able to convert $5 in play money into $6 of real money, at which point I cashed in and left.
Traffic into Sacramento, through Stockton, and back to the Bay Area was annoyingly heavy. The RV handled much better with the steering stabilizer in place. Had the traffic permitted it, I could have gone faster, but I maintained my patience. Not everyone could do that, however, and on one stretch of congested stop-and-go traffic people were passing on the shoulder and median, which maybe helped them, but slowed the rest of us down. I found myself wishing a Highway Patrol car would appear.
I made it to the Bay Area about 7 PM, got a pizza, watched the last bit of the last World Cup game of the night, and settled in for this stay. Current Mood: tired
