Before we left Kingman, I took another Benadryl and was out for the better part of the detour to Flagstaff. The roads were still closed because of Black Ice, and Accidents, so we decided to go south and then north on 17 back up to I-40.

When we got to Flagstaff, I relieved Mike behind the wheel and we stopped at a familiar place, McDonalds. This time, I got a Fish Filet. I hadn’t had a Fish-Filet since 1970 something. It was good, and killed the hunger pains, but it wasn’t a good move on the eating plan.

We made it to Albuquerque around 6pm and Mike wanted some Ministrone Soup(which sounded really good!) so I GPS’d the nearest Olive Garden Restaurant. Where we had the Ministrone Soup and I had a small plate of Noodles and Souce, over which we decided to call it a day and hold up in town. Which is good, because I’m needing another dose of the Benedryl and right to bed.!!! I just remembered, neither before lunch or dinner did I take my Barley Max either:(

Left LA with a snuffed up nose, headache and overall not feeling well.! Luckily, Mike drove out and we had pretty good weather,until Arizona. Before we even got out of California, we hit McDonald’s and I had a Southwestern Salad with out the Chicken and the Creamy Dressing. It was so windy and cold… a sign of temperatures and conditions to come.

As we continued West on I-40 in Arizona the temperatures got down into the single digits. Just outside of Kingman, Arizona we hit traffic. For at least 3 hours we sat in stop and go traffic. As if the dipping temperatures weren’t enough, the whole time we sat and inched my urge to go the bathroom built. Until we got to the Seligman exit where we stopped to gas up, use the bathroom, and figure out our course of action.

We decided to go back to Kingman, because as far as the eye could see, there were red lights lined up on eastbound interstate 40. Waiting in that was not going to be how we wanted to spend the night. So we got into Kingman and found the Walmart, where I got another Green Salad to munch on and we were off to the hotel room… until tomorrow!
