Feather [userpic]
All safe and snug

The drive over wasn't too bad, actually. The RV has a transmission problem, though. For the last several years it hard-shifts between 2nd and 3rd, sometimes even locking up the transmission. The only thing to do is stop, turn the engine off, and restart it. I've had it checked, and been assured it's fine, but it did it going over the pass, only this time it got stuck in 6th gear, which turned out to be okay, because there was about 4 feet of snow on the shoulder, and no chance of stopping until I reached the other side. I did discover that it's best not to try to climb steep mountain pass roads in 6th gear, though. ::laughs::

I'm also an incredibly weak, weak person. My plan was to stick to major highways. Mapquest suggested I take a shortcut and bypass Tacoma, but nope. Not me. Major highways only! The last time I took a short cut I almost drove off a cliff and damaged the jeep! Yep, just keep to the major roads.

Except. . .

There was a shiny sign, with the name of the town I was going to, and it had a pointy arrow. Yes, it was the road I almost drove off of, but really, that was last spring, and obviously the detour was gone, and the road was bare and dry. . .

So I turned. *palmface* It turned out to be okay, though. Good drive, no wind, light traffic, and no shifting problems. Plus, it cut an hour off my drive so I got here when the sun was still out, which was nice for getting all hooked up. I ran into town to get my new ClearWire modem for internet access, then complained to carron that I wouldn't get the satellite dish up until the weekend, probably, and it was going to be arctic cold then. She kindly suggested that even though it was dark at that point, maybe I should do it now. So I did, and thank god for that! It's sleeting outside now, and we've got a massive cold front coming in, but I'm all safe and warm, complete with TV and internet access.

One of the girls I worked with last time I was here called while I was on the road and asked where I was. I told her, she relayed the info, and I could hear squeeing in the background. It made my heart all warm and fuzzy. It's nice to be so appreciated!

And I've got a really kinky sex toy fic that's almost done.

I'm a happy girl.


Nobody sighed more loudly than I did when I pulled in. This park is at the top of a very steep hill, which is very icy in the winter, so I was delighted that the road up was bare and dry. Actually, the whole way over was bare and dry. I just lucked out! *does happy dance*

ClearWire is a wireless internet company. You can either rent or buy a modem. The modem is $200, but you can rent it for $5 a month. Since I won't be living here for the rest of my life, it's cheaper to rent. I'll turn it back in when I leave-- unless they have their service at my next assignment.
