All good things got to come to an end, same with the Bulthuis road trip. We made the long I-5 grind with two stops. The Country Buffet in Medford seems to always be the ticket for a big meal between Sacramento and home. The 'Harry and David's' market provides a short diversion before getting back on the road and taking turns napping. That mattress in the back of the van is great! The other stop was the new Ikea in Portland. Esther wanted some particular spice containers only available at Ikea. The store was packed. I always feel like I am in a labyryinth. The mazes are maddening! - especially in a new store finding one item. It was good to get home, but sad to say goodbye to summer heat.
