We get going from our Super 8 motel about 8 am. This
is a long driving day and everyone will need to take a
turn driving while everyone else tries to find a way to
rest from the sleep-deprived night.
The drive is beautiful with no more rain. We travel through
Minnesota, Iowa, all the way across Nebraska, and into
Wyoming. We only need to travel two highways which are
Interstate 35 and Interstate 80. Odd number Interstates
run north and south and even number Interstates run east
to west just in case you wanted to know. We are treated
to a beautiful sunset as we come across the Nebraska/Wyoming
border and finally make it to the hotel around 9 pm with
Merch Girl, also known as Lead Foot Sue, at the wheel.
The hotel is a nice Fairfield Inn with warm cookies waiting
for us. This supports 'the quality of the hotel
in proportion to the length of stay theory' as we
will only be here for a short time. We will need to be
off at 8 am to make a 7 hour drive to Salt Lake City.
