13.5 hours and 756 miles… I’ve already learned several things; One, there’s a lot more people living in rural areas than I actually thought. Two, I’m grateful for music and cruise control, even though I went the entire day without either one. Third, I won’t use electronic devices while driving…
I literally drove for 12 hours and had my phone in airplane mode so I had no distractions, just time, beautiful landscapes and thoughts. Around 7:00pm I decided I would call a couple hotels to see if there were availabilities and check pricing. No more than 3 mins with my phone off airplane mode and flashing red and blue lights pounded my mirrors. I quickly pulled over to let the police officer pass and to my surprise, he pulled over right behind me. After waiting for 2-3 mins (felt like 10) The officer approached and let me know it was illegal to drive AND use an electronic devise. (As it should be) “Yes, I’m guilty and I deserve to pay for it.” I didn’t know it would be $167 Canadian! So really it’s only like $60 American… 😉
Well, I decided to call it a day. I’m resting at the Sunshine Inn located in Burns Lake, BC. I’ve driven many miles and hour upon hours in the past, but my butt has never been this SOAR!!! I should probably get out and move more. I think I’ll take my time tomorrow and I’ll for sure stay off the phone.
I hope you’re well!
Miss you all already!!
