sounds like a fun idea, Debb
I remember a couple years ago I just missed being in Oregon when you were there by about 10 days. I think you met Betty and Jo!

Yeah, Betty - I bet the 99 must be a gorgeous drive, even if it is longer!

I guess the part of the I-5 going through Stockton is not the best (no offense to those who live there), and it certainly can be a mess through the San Fernando Valley up to about 118 (Simi Valley Freeway) and maybe up to and through Santa Clarita (Valencia, Magic Mountain area), as well.

I wonder, if next time I can (afford to) make it out to the States, if there is some place all of you (us?) west coasters could meet for a day or 2? A central-ish area, perhaps?

Gosh, we could be the I-5 bunch, huh? (Leslie, Faith, Kris and myself). I've about got the road memorized at least between here and Portland. Small world isn't it - didn't realize there was that many of us near the "I-5 Corridor" as they call it.

Debb, Years and years ago - (I was in my 20's) I lived in LA for awhile and my parents lived here and I used to drive that I-5 probably 5-6 times a year... Even before it was I-5 and one had just "Highway 99". (we're talking late 50's, early 60's). It was a lot longer drive then than the 14-15 hours it is now though - closer to 18-20 hours back then. I used to drive straight through often, but now since I'm older (and maybe wiser) I usually make it a two day jaunt.
But you're right, most of it is a pretty drive and I enjoyed it then and still do, tho it's been a few years since I've driven down there.

I think Woodland is about four hours south of me... LOL Everett - not so exciting, but Skagit County (famous only for tulip bulbs and spinach seed and a bridge that got knocked down by a careless Canadian trucker) is much less so!

LOL Kris, Betty (Ewefluffy) is right in between us too! I live in Burlington (Skagit County) which is about an hour north of Seattle, and the Honda dealer I go to is in Everett (about 20 minutes north of Seattle). I think I'm about an hour and a half south of the Canadian border, and most of my life is in a north-south pattern on I-5!

I had a nice drive, had fast, professional service on the car, and headed home. Now I'm working on a huge policy/procedures document for the client who is about to expand his business... I also managed a fast interior cleaning job on my car before I left this morning so I want to be out driving around! I love a clean car... :)

Thanks for the recipe, James. I made them this morning. They were delicious!! Will be keeping that recipe in my rotation. Wonder what else I can make with protein powder. I see some experimenting in my future.

ahh yes, memories of "zipping up and down" the I-5! Used to do it a few times a year when I moved to Oregon from Southern Calif. About 14-15 hrs of driving! Beautiful, most of it!

I used to run up and down I-5, I lived in Des Moines, a good friend lives in Sandy so when I go visit I still do I-5, although I have to take a ferry first or it's the ALCAN.

Up at 6:00, coffeed, showered, dressed, breakfasted, dog walked- it was a dog park at the beach this morning, there had to be 30 dogs down there. Laundry going, pork belly roasting ( thanks for the idea Maw), Rev Rolls made- off to a great start!

1. Stop wasting money- Save money

2. Exercise- do something every day

3. Get organized- mise en place

4. Write a letter by hand at least once a week.

Every day this side of the sod is a good day-
not sure who said it

My animals make me happy, some people not so much- a bumper sticker

Yes Kris! My new fave at Cafe Mike's is fish tacos. I just toss the tortillas that they come on. I usually get 2 or 3. Yummy!

Interesting Leslie how far away we are from each other but both of us buzzing up and down the I 5. Kris to, I think, is somewhere in between us. I go bak and forth to work everyday from the mountain to the valley on I 5.

Did a dog walk this morning, and now I've got to shower and spiff up to take my car in to the dealer for an oil change and a few other things. It's a nice little buzz down I-5 into a much less rural area so I'm going to enjoy it. I don't get out of this valley often enough!

First up I gotta clean out the car and de-Schnauzer it...

This morning I ate my famous pancakes made with strawberry flavoured whey powder, and rather than sirup I put a little whipped cream on them, strawberry flavoured. Am I tempting fate? Will this lead me to higher carb things, like an entry drug? Nah!

Here is the recipe:
