Showering at truck stops is definitely an option, but I've found that most places aren't amenable to car fueling giving points, and cash-wise, twelve bucks is a third of the price of a cheap hotel room.

The showers are usually pretty awesome, though

Ah yes, pass current border enforcement and drive around Mexico with your every material possession, great idea

What could possibly go wrong?

Well, a couple of days spent in Portland, although I haven't made nearly as wide of a survey of the area as I would like. The extensive and inexplicable laziness of last summer's road trip has returned in full force. I'm strongly considering going with the option of finding and renting something instead of finding places to sleep in the car (actually got rousted at 2 in the morning today, in an 24 hour gym parking lot, even).

Portland itself seems pleasant enough, although my attempt to visit the zoo was delayed by ridiculous numbers of people and 1.60 an hour parking. The culture seems decent and it looks generally acceptable from browsing the craigslist rentals. On the negative side, going to a grocery store and buying a loaf of bread, a jar of peanut butter, and two bottles of Powerade somehow topped ten bucks, which is pretty damn ridiculous to my mind. I think it might just be Safeways, though, because I recall the one I visited in California being crazy expensive too.

See, if you'd just had gone to Baja instead you'd be in an exciting thriller movie about Mexican cartels right now. Instead you've got organic latte bread and can't pump your own gas.

Damn me and my poor decision making. It's amazing how disconcerting not pumping my own gas actually is. Am I supposed to tip for it?

Don't tip for it, unless they do something to actually deserve like clean your windows for you.


And if you want somewhere to park and sleep,parking lots of strip malls and stores like Meijers are good places to do it.

Been forever since I've posted in this thread, but the looming Steam release is making me nostalgic for the past. Maybe I'll have to post an update or an epilogue or somesuch.

Something like that! And I probably stopped posting frequently five years ago or something.

It's pretty incredible how much went into this thread once upon a time. It's nice to look back on, so I think it's served its purpose.

When you started this thread, you were 17 and I was 4, and now you are 30 and I am 17.

I see in your first post you mentioned you were applying to West Point. One of my friends is in JROTC and said you need a recommendation from your Congressman to apply to West Point. Was that also true back then? You know, in the olden times?
