Subject: Re: Road trip across the US

At this moment, my sister & niece are in the midst of a drive trip from Santa Clara CA to Boston via Eugene & Lewiston ID. At their rest stop here in Eugene, they said that within 45 minutes of leaving Santa Clara, they were squabbling. It was only the blessed distraction of a great book on tape/cd that saved the day!

Have you any relatives or friends on whom to impose for accoms on the way? That may increase the stress for you, but save on the budget. And if you're so inclined, a stay at a hostel can save lots of money, but I know it's not for everyone.

Gail In Eugene but never for long
