Day 56 of 84 Days of 84 Ribbons: On the Road
Today we are beginning our drive to Montana. Rich and I will follow I-90 to Spokane and stay overnight in Coeur d’Alene, ID. In the morning we’ll drive on to Missoula for the first book event (Fact and Fiction bookstore at 5 Campus Drive). The last time I was in Missoula was decades ago for a high school summer church conference. I remember about two dozen of us took the train, ignoring the scenery and differences between Bremerton and Missoula. I wrote about the bus ride Marta took based on a driving trip Rich and I made east to Montana then south to Arizona while I was writing 84 Ribbons. It’s a marvelous drive with eyes glued to the car window, taking in all the sites. We’ll drive on to Bozeman to spend the evening together and then Rich returns home. Then I’ll to be like, Marta, traveling alone for the rest of the trip.
