Pit Stop in Central Point

Because I got away from Mehama earlier than I expected and made excellent time, I found myself approaching Central Point (Medford) much sooner than I thought I would. At the Hugo Rest Area (no kidding) I called Holiday Inn to see if I might be able to get in to Yreka instead -- I could have pushed on ahead and been there in a couple of hours. Yreka had rooms, but for enough more than what I'm paying in Central Point that I decided to forgo the option and headed for Central Point instead, which is where I am now.

After checking in, I walked around the the hotel and saw this parked out back.

No, it's not actually NASCAR driver Colin Braun staying here tonight. I happened to see someone from the team outside, identified myself as an employee of Conway's sister company, and they explained that they were on their way to a show somewhere. I don't closely follow our company's NASCAR truck racing series driver, but I thought it was an interesting little coincidence.

Settling in to the hotel, I was reminded of another good reason for stopping early tonight. Central Point has a hot tub and Yreka does not. After all of the work I've been doing this past week, a soak in the hot tub would be a nice thing. Besides, I hauled my swimsuit clear across the continent and never used it -- no time, even on the theoretical "tourism" day in Montreal -- and by golly, I'm going to get some use out of it.
