I got a few long distance assignments this last week and I was able to put over 1,000 miles on the TSX in 4 days. Oregon, Ketchum, Twin Falls & Oregon again.
I didn’t get to see anything fancy car-wise, but I did drive by this butte in Oregon that looked pretty cool. ( I like big Buttes & I cannot lie…) Malheur Butte is actually an extinct volcano located in Malheur (French for “misfortune,” “bad fortune,” or “unhappiness) County OR. Elevation 2,661 ft with a prominence of 500 ft. It still has active hot springs. I drove around the back of this huge mass to see if there was a way up, but there are “Private Property” signs all over. There did seem to be a trail to the top but most likely for walking only. It was pretty steep and wouldn’t be sure if the RDX would make it up much less the TSX!
I also found a small campground on the way to Ketchum. It had a slightly Tim Burton’ish feel as none of the trees have started to wake up yet. But it made for a couple of cool pictures. During a local inspection I found a new fleet of a dozen Explorer Interceptors sitting in a lot and waiting to be processed for the Boise PD. So any one coming thru town, keep your speed in mind. They need to pay for these new rides somehow…
I drove by one of my favorite streets in Nampa, ID again. I may someday buy some property on this street just for the address…Honorable mention was a local inspection of a box van owned by a stage production company. Inside the warehouse were these crazy speakers. The were almost 3 ft in circumference!
So here we are, so close to victory I can taste it! Only 855 miles to go! My next post will be the roll over of 400,000 miles & the replacement of my AC system. Safe travels everyone and see you again soon!
