1. I learned from my last drive to North Idaho from Eugene, that the key to staying awake is hydration. I drank lots of cool water between Eugene and Kellogg and it worked. My energy was good and I made great time.
2. I managed to drive from Eugene to Kellogg almost non-stop, interrupting my drive only to fill up with gas and get some more water. It was a cool drive, no oppressive heat. I drove from Boardman to Kellogg non-stop. The Honda performed well and I made pretty good time: my favorite kind of drive.
3. Mom had a scrumptious pasta salad ready to eat in Kellogg and raised the culinary bar by serving hot dogs along side. After not eating during my Eugene to Kellogg drive, this meal was perfect.
