Thinking more about the August-September drives to/from Oregon, I decided to economize a little bit. (The huge amount of money I'll be spending over that month on hotel and other travel expenses in Japan weighs heavily on my mind.) So I booked a considerably less-expensive room in Yreka, just up the road from Weed, instead. The Rodeway Inn is only barely above Motel 6, but it's only for one night each way. At least it's not a Day's Inn; I'll never willing stay in one of those again.
