1st adventure of 2009
For a while now Shane has been applying for different jobs andkeeping our fingers crossed for an interview. Now that he's graduated he has been working on getting his intern license and sense Oregon looked more promising with jobs we decided to consintrate on applying there. Well, the call finailly came and nervous about how and when we would get to Oregon for the interview we found ourselves leaving quickly last Friday night in the middle of a snow storm. I will admit I was a little crazy for packing the car and getting us on the road so we could be to Oregon by Saturday afteroon, spend time with my family part of Saturday and Sunday and then the interview on Monday, back on the road that night and to work on Tuesday. Well, our plans didn't go as smoothly as we thought it would. We arrived to Portland fine just a little bit of snow coming over the blues. We spent the night in Boise Friday night and arrived safely to my parents Saturday around 4pm. Monday the interview went great and I fell in live with the area. Beautiful drive and it felt great. Monday we headed back to Utah and decided to take a.... well, I guess what you would call a back road home. BAD IDEA!! specially during the winter. We cut up over into Klameth Falls and into Lakeview. (never heard of it and thats bad for being from Oregon) 7pm at night driving on a thick sheet of ice and in the middle of no where. I got scared and emagined us getting stuck for days and barried in the snow. So Shane and I decided to turn around and drive the hour and half back to klameth Falls. We spent the night and the next day headed for Portland to catch the I-84 back to Utah. We hit a couple more road blocks on our way back. Snow and ice in LaGrande, a reck going through the canyon into Lime. Dead stop for 10 min on the interstate and then backed up traffic for an hour and did I mention ICE!! We made it to Ontario and spant another night. The next day we were off and just as we hit the Idaho border the roads were clear all the way home. Well, a fast trip that was supposed to be 1 day off from work turned into 3 days off from work and I think I said it a thousand times I'm not going anywhere for a really long time specially to Oregon. WELL GUESS WHAT?
