Days 1 - 2 of the drive back

Yesterday I made it to Baker City, OR, as planned.

Today here I am in Ogden, UT, but I don't think the room I've been put in is Wi-Fi enabled or non-smoking. I'm using an open connection named "linksys" with very low signal strength. Problem is, I've already moved all my stuff in. So do I try to get a different room (and have to relocate all my stuff upstairs) or put up with this for one night?

At the moment I'm leaning towards "put up with this for one night". The mattress doesn't seem to stink.

Day 2 cont.: Changed room

OK, so I'm in a Wi-Fi enabled room now, after complaining to the front desk and laboriously moving all my stuff upstairs here. Man, I can't wait for Motel 6 to realize how nifty this whole "wireless internet" thing is — it's jes' like gittin' th' intertubes... on thuh radio! — and install it in more than like 10% of their rooms.

Tomorrow: Laramie, WY.
