R O A D T R I P !
Thursday, June 2nd, 9:30 a.m. Paula, Jen and Wendy arrive at my door, laden with bags and baskets, coolers and cookies, pillows and pocketbooks, maps and memories-yet-to-be-made. We four are brimming with excitement as we stuff our stuff into the Suburban (and the trailer hitched up behind), on our way from Salt Lake to Spokane to the awesome/ incredible/legendary Farm Chicks show. As we pull out of the driveway I hand the camera to my sweetheart so he can record our departure, but somehow the memory card never made it into its slot. . . hmmmm. We'll have better luck with pics as we go. "On the Road Again" sneaks its way into my head, although "again" is a little misleading as this is my first "girlfriend trip" in about 25 years. Woo hoo, we're off!

In a few short hours we reach the Idaho border, and my girlfriends laugh at me as I pull over to record the moment. They tell me it's illegal to stop. Oh well, we had a good laugh as Paula held Idaho up for the world to see.
We are grateful to be in Idaho because that means we get to check out some thrift and antique stores that we "scoped out" on the Internet before leaving Utah. Check out the "eye candy" we found at one such store. . . .
Pocatello proved to be a great city to thrift in. . . and photograph. I fell in love with "vintage" feel of the city. See for yourself. . . .
Paula had fun, too - being the "pathological picture taker" she is!
