Traffic was pretty light so I think my plan of getting ahead of the holiday weekend a bit worked ;). Had lunch with my sister and nephew in Bend. He just graduated from pre-school! On my way to my Aunt and Uncle’s place in La Pine I took a quick detour up to Newberry Crater. Hardly any traffic to hold me back and the pavement was in great shape so I warmed up the tires a bit.

At my Aunt and Uncle’s I managed to get the kitchen faucet replaced after two trips to Bi Mart attempting get the right parts to fit an ‘interesting’ water hook up. After that, managed to get the WiFi fixed as well and Uncle’s iPad working again :). Was great to get and visit with them but also looking forward to getting further from the familiar and closer to the novel tomorrow.
