It’s time for a nutritious Taco Bell dinner in Weed.
The temperature is cooling off a bit with elevation, which is nice. I know intellectually that Redding must occassionally dip below 100F, but I’ve never seen it.
There’s not much interesting to report, sadly. Traffic on the 5 was good, but I kept the speed down due to the high po po presence. I counted 5 squad cars in the Shasta Lake area alone. Lots of semis, of course, but far fewer RVs than I’d expected on a holiday weekend. Hopefully that luck will hold through Monday!
Time to get onto Hwy 97 and head northeast.
