Mapquest lies. 10 Hours turned into 12 and a half, plus the time change. They must assume that you have the bladder of a camel and can goes days without relief. After a traditional 'must stop' at Ellensburg, it was straight thru to Missoula. Nope. Ryan started first, "when are we going to get there?" It was somewhere between Vantage and Moses Lake. Near Cheney, he needed to stretch his legs. He was tired of sitting. Get used to it kid... By the Idaho line he was working up excuses one after the other. The best one was... "I need to get out of the car so I can rest my legs. We got him to hold off for a bit when he realized that he could stand up in the Yukon. Of course getting him to stay in the seat became the ultimate challeng,e so we stopped at Couer d'Alene. Couer d'Alene which turned into a ice cream stop vs just a leg stretch for Ryan.
Yahoo-oooo! Idaho and Montana Speed Limit 75!!!
Gassed up in the little town of Alberton. Had a new experience there. Found out that you can only get $74 of gas out of a pump before it stops. Reloaded the pump with the debit card and the Yukon took another $20.01. Damn. (Gotta check the gallons/mile meter when I get back on the road...) Averaged 15.8... er... uh... well... there were a lot of mountain passes. Yeah that's the reason. DW
