Slow Progress

I really dawdled on the trip south, taking some seven hours to drive only about 240 miles, including a one hour meal stop at Tolly's Restaurant in Oakland. I was introduced to this place by my old friend Rick Hallock, and I try to stop here whenever my schedule fits doing so.

The Holiday Inn Express Central Point is a nice enough place, but the room doesn't have a refrigerator (I've come to expect them in HIX properties), and the heating/cooling unit doesn't have a "fan only" setting. I do appreciate that internet is available in both wired and wireless versions. Having got checked in and the train photos uploaded, I'm going to eat dinner and watch one of the rugby matches I downloaded on Friday.
