The Gorge, Washington
Yesterday (September 27), armed with 35 bottles of wine, one bottle of single malt, over one thousand hardback books and a considerable amount of schwag (Does anyone really need Carpenter's pencils these days? Does anyone really still whittle?) I drove from Seattle to Spokane in Washington state.
We also have a reasonable supply of Cubans for the occasional small celebration. I like to protest human rights violations in Cuba by ritually burning their agricultural products!

Our recently adopted theme movie is 2014's Chef with John Favreau (I saw it on the plane out). How on earth did he manage to get dumped by Scarlett Johansson and Sofía Vergara anyway? We won't be peddling Cuban sandwiches or BBQ but we do have a product for those that still read.
Like Favreau's character we look forward most of all to reconnecting with olds friends and family on this cross country trek and, perhaps, selling a tome or tow along the way. Beignets in New Orleans at cafe du monde -- a must!
I passed by the Gorge which is a natural wonder in the state that hosts many live music concerts in the summer.
