Well I finally arrived, checked into the motel, and brought some of my stuff in. I am absolutely whipped, as I just walked to Walmart to get a few easy-to-fix lunches and breakfast. I passed right by on my way here, in fact I've passed several Walmarts today, but I thought there would surely be a convenience store near the motel. I think WM is about a mile from here, and of course I bought more than I intended. Do you think I would unhitch that truck and drive there? Not likely.
I'm glad to be staying still for a while. The room has a fair amount of space plus small fridge & microwave, but no coffeemaker, so I brought my Mr. Coffee inside. There is a desk and chair as well as a round table, so I could bring in my desktop but I don't want to. It just takes up to much room and I have the feeling the walls of this place will close in on me before long.
The drive here went pretty well - about half was freeway and the other half was country roads with very little traffic. It is actually a truck route, so not all that "country". I even found a gas station I could fit into about 2/3 of the way here. I haven't turned the tv on yet - will I or won't I? There sure isn't much else to do in a motel room. Bummer!
