Days 10, 11: Sandy UT to Piedmont CA (home!)

700+ miles driven today, made it home at about 1:45am, house is in surprisingly good order, kids now sleeping after transfer from the van, very good food in Reno yet again (Laughing Planet Cafe). Also, it was announced that the showers were not working in Winnemucca, but this did not affect us. Last, note that there is a mobile tattoo parlor in Elko NV.

Days 8, 9: Kalispell MT to Idaho Falls ID to Sandy UT

Hwy 93 Lewis and Clark Trail south, snack and traffic in Missoula, first roadkill in Idaho at night, temp variation from 40F to 90F in the same valley, lots of mice on the road at night, nuclear test facilities (and no towns) north east of Idaho Falls, lots of eagle's nests in WY, no bears. Now in UT, work tomorrow, then home. Burned steak in adjacent hotel room equals long spells of fire detector music.
