PART 14: 2011 Western American Road Trip, Arrival in Spokane WA, drinking, karaoke


We finally arrived in Spokane, descending into the valley on I-90.

An oversized load brought traffic to a crawl.

I was happy to make it to my dad’s house and finally sleep.

Friends of mine, the Flahertys, just had a new baby. She’s genuinely very cute.

I ran into them at the store.

Tyler and Kara recently got engaged.

Jack and Dan’s Pub

Went elsewhere with Tyler to sing some Careless Whisper, drunk of course.

Next day…

Wandering around Safeway


Bo and Linda’s puppies!

Bo gave me an authentic Teddy Ruxpin. I still need to find some tapes.
