210 miles started off with a picture for Missy, Nichole's daughter. This is also a good reference for gas prices in the future.

Joanne's new jacket after getting gas. Gas at Sam's was $2.62/gallon.

 

Think there are enough wires?

Roy and Joanne on the way to Oroville.

 

Saw this accident on the road to Oroville. See the skid marks?

I'm guessing the skid marks are from the truck in the ditch. The white car didn't fair so well either.

 

Resuming our ride to the buffet. Gorgeous day!
