What a Trip

I left Roy, Utah at 9 a.m. yesterday morning.  For awhile it looked as though I wasn’t leaving at all.  I asked the motel desk clerk for directions to the nearest north bound freeway on ramp, and she didn’t know where the freeway was.  Instead I got directions to a gas station.

I could see the freeway on ramp from the gas station.  I asked which lane I needed to be in when I pulled out — neither.  It was a one way street and first I had to circle the block. 

Finally I hit the freeway — to contstruction woes.  Traffic was bumper to bumper, 70 miles an hour, with dump trucks and orange cones and tractors rolling in and out … somewhat freaky.  And in the mess I missed my exit and didn’t realize it until I was quite a ways past.

I stopped to ask for directions and was told to keep going, I’d make it just fine … which was tue, but it took me about 300 miles out of my way!  I drove through West Yellowstone Park though.  That was pretty.

I made it to my sisters about 10 p,m, last night.  I have had about 6 hours sleep and was just called to breakfast …

Quilly is the pseudonym of Charlene L. Amsden, who lives on The Big Island in Hawaii. When she is not hanging out with Amoeba, she is likely teaching or sewing. Or she could be cooking, taking photographs, or even writing. But if she's not doing any of that, she's probably on Facebook or tinkering with her blog.


  1. I’m glad you made it there in good shape, if not good time. Have lots of fun.

    Can you tell me why Cindra’s sites are down and her email is not working?

  2. New world for you, huh, Quilly? Very courageous; you should be proud.

    All the best of everything…

  3. That’s just a little detour isn’t it? Enjoy your visit, I can smell breakfast waiting. What a great imagination I have…. 🙂

  4. Brig — traveling with me is always an adventure.

    Melli — oatmeal.

    Polona — I stopped at the river and stuck my feet in the water — then pulled them right out. That water was cold!

    Nessa — Cindra’s sites work for me! I am not on my own comp, so I can’t tell you about her email.

    Al — I’ve traveled all over the U.S. — usually seeing more of it then I intended because of little side trips like this one.

    Pauline — it was a lovely side trip. And if you were smelling bacon and eggs, that wasn’t my breakfast.

  5. I am glad you made it safely to Spokane and will ask God’s Angels to get you safely to the Islands.

    I tired to leave a comment here last night but as soon as I pressed on submit comment the next window I got was the comments page and my comment was not here. Hopefully this comment will post.
