Day 24 - Kellogg, ID

Biscuits w/sausage gravy. A good way to start the day. And, they tasted pretty good for the hotel breakfast. It’s been 178 days since we ordered this Jeep. Quite the wait. 

The fresh snow was not what I wanted to see for this trek back to FL. And this is in Spokane not Idaho where the elevation is lower. I’m waiting for a shuttle to pick me up for the 70 mile trip to the dealership. More to come…

I left the dealer at 11:20 with snow and headed east on the Interstate into the mountains. It was icy with packed snow west of the summit but things generally improved as I headed east and south. I made it to Billings, MT, by 8:00. Almost 500 miles. 

At least I arrived before Cracker Barrel closed. I had the fried chicken dinner. Then headed to the Howard Johnson’s motel pretty exhausted.

No pictures. Too busy with blowing snow, ice and some drifts crossing the highway.
