Crossing Wyoming

Lisa called this afternoon to report today's progress so far. When possible, she's diverting off the interstate and following US-30, partially to save fuel (driving slower without being run over by faster vehicles) and partially to watch the trains on the parallel Union Pacific mainline. She reports that last night she saw the one passenger train that UP dispatchers don't interminably delay -- the UP business train.

Today the starboard fuel tank seems to be feeding most of the time, mainly because it works okay when cruising at low demand.
