Ruthie On The Road, Update

Hello Campers! It is I, Ruthie On The Road, writing to you from a library on the campus of Purdue University in beautiful Lafayette,Indiana.

(Are you surprised?)

"But, but..." You sputter "...yer supposed to be in Oregon! You weren't planning on leaving until this coming weekend! Why, you were supposed to travel down I-40, weren't you???"

Mmmmmmm...maybe.

I left Portland, Oregon last Thursday morning. Yup.

After taking a city bus out to Troutdale (a suburb of Portland) I walked onto the ramp to I-84 East.

That began my journey through Idaho, Utah, Wyoming, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois and into Indiana.

I traveled with truckers. For hundreds and hundreds of miles.

And one driver in particular sticks in my mind.
