Road Day

Today was spent pretty much on the road.

The bishop held a meeting for all the Deans and Presidents of the Convocations (Deaneries in some places) at the church in Salem.

That's about a 3-hour drive.  The first two aren't too bad; it's curvy, there are hills and interesting scenery.  That last hour, though, from Eugene to Salem, has got to be the worst drive in the state.  It's pretty the first time you do it -- mountains to the west, a bunch of dairy land, cows, sheep, that sort of thing.  But if you want variety in scenery, that's not the place for it.  Nor is the steering wheel really necessary, since the road looks like this:  ========================= .

The meeting wasn't bad, and we were finished slightly ahead of schedule.

Then it was back in the car for the 3-hour trek home.

Now I spent 6-1/2 years in Montana, so I'm not really complaining about the driving -- it's what you do.  But my knees . . . I am seriously close to tears they hurt so bad.  I can really only do 4 hours max at a time anymore; so a combined 6 hours was almost too much.

Mrs. Ref will be driving more than usual on our upcoming vacation to Montana.
