Leaving Home

We left Walla Walla this morning around 9am. Weird. Exciting. Sad. We don't expect to return until sometime in July-August of 2019. We weren't very good about finding people and saying goodbye this past week. If we missed you, we already miss you. We were lucky to see our neighbors Casey, Tessa and their daughter Scarlet on the way out this morning. Scarlet gave us hugs. She knows we're going away for awhile, but at 3 years old, she doesn't really know.

Short day driving today. Good weather. Had lunch at a park in downtown Baker City, OR. The last time we were in that part of the world was for the solar eclipse last August.


We're currently camped at a private campground outside of Twin Falls, ID called Anderson Campground. Not a destination location, more an inexpensive place to spend the night. Very windy, had to position the car as a wind break to keep the tent from blowing away. A tent that was set up down range from us, collapsed after a while and those folks just packed up and left. I think we're past the worst of it now.

 

Hoping for a good night's sleep in the tent. Already one time zone east of home.
