Not just because of prices, but because I’m looking at two 300+ mile roadtrips in two weeks. My grandmother was in an auto accident this week, so I made plans to go to Idaho after the business tour of our contractor’s plant (despite my impending job transfer to a new company, I’m intent on going out on a strong note).

That means I’m traveling from Everett to Moses Lake, doing the tour, then it’s onward to Post Falls, Idaho. I’m probably going to get an oil change today after work at the Chevy of Everett, since it’s starting to go dark. I want to play it safe.

Here’s hoping everything works out.
