Having had a relatively leisurely morning, taken a walk after breakfast, and had a look at my schedule, I think I will swing over to Sutter when I get to Williams later today and visit my grandfather and drop off some small gifts for my family. The only person for whom I couldn't think of anything to get was my grandfather himself, but my family doesn't set much stock in these sorts of things, so I don't see it being a problem. Given that some of my presents are semi-perishable (rice cakes from the Choshi Dentestu), it's best that I get them to their recipients sooner rather than later.
A ride on the Yreka Western will have to wait for another trip, I reckon. Maybe one of these times I will actually be able to budget the necessary half-day for it.
This little Rodeway Inn in Yreka is pretty good value for the $55 I paid for it. The room is a lot larger than some of the hotel rooms in which we stayed during the Japan trip, the room comes with a microwave oven and refrigerator, and the wireless internet works fine. The one thing that would count against it, I think, is that it has only a shower, not a bathtub, and it's not a particularly good shower at that. I'm a tall person, and I thought the shower was set too high. Goodness knows how someone shorter than me would find it.
Anyway, time to put some more miles on the van.
