The fourth stop was at Mt. Shasta City, where Lisa wanted me to go into a natural-foods store there and buy all of the cans of a certain brand of tuna that she found there but cannot find in her part of Oregon. Hope I bought the right one!
Now I'm safely checked in to the Rodeway Inn Yreka, which is about what you'd expect for a small, not-very-expensive motel in these parts, but will probably seem roomy when I stay here again on my way back to the Bay Area after the Japan trip. Indeed, as seems to be increasingly the case in the less-expensive hotels, I have a microwave oven and mini-fridge, although they won't do me much good on this stop.
The wireless internet came up without too much difficulty, and unlike the coffee shop in Williams, was also able to raise my VPN, which makes getting my e-mail easier than the clunky web-mail interface.
And, because it's a cheap hotel instead of an expensive one, we have regular cable with lots of channels instead of the special hotel-only system with a limited supply, and thus I can raise FSN Bay Area and watch the Giants game. Yay!
Tomorrow I'll drive just about the same distance as I did today. (My rule-of-thumb halfway point for these trips is anywhere between Dunsmuir and Medford.)
