12.21.15 Quick Trip to Phoenix


Ice Cream Humor – Prince Cian and Dairy Queen road snack. Quick road trip to storage, Phoenix, Oregon. 21 December 2015.

21 December 2015
Roseburg, Oregon – Phoenix, Oregon

A night’s slumber at the Motel 6 in Rice Hill, Oregon was just what the weary adventurers needed. A free hotel stay from their point collections through Hotels.com was a blessing to the un-existing budget as well. Sir Thomas Leaf and Prince Cian took a nice swim in the heated indoor pool which was remarkably warm as was the outside temperatures in Rice Hill – no snow in the forecast, ever it seemed, or according to the hotel lobby clerk. They packed up their Explorer and headed off to Phoenix, Oregon to deal with storage. Enroute getting back on to the interstate they were greated with a beautiful double-rainbow signifying success and prosperity. There is a small chance that the adventurers may return to Ireland for a couple of months to shelter out the snow and cold, as was offered in a gift of plane tickets if the adventurers could make it happen. Alas though, the trio probably couldn’t go given they would have to come up with transportation money to the airport, monthly storage fees while they were gone, and auto insurance payments – with no income at the moment this was quite the dilemma. Not to mention that Lady Etain’s passport was expired and that it would take some time to renew, if they had the funds to renew it. She lost her Irish debit card so couldn’t access any holiday gift money funds she was gifted either.

They pitstopped for lunch at Dairy Queen for the infamous $5 buck lunch. Prince Cian was hungry enough to have his own, and ravaged the free cone that came with his – having fun with ice cream and milk moustaches.

The adventurers made it to Phoenix, restroom breaking at the Blue Heron park where Prince Cian had a chance to play at the playground. The adventurers then headed into storage, meeting up with their good friend the Little Debbie broker who gifted them a box of snacks and goodies which is all too common when they meet. The delvers explored through their wall of stored goods hunting for suitcases in case they do go to Ireland, and the blessed surprise of finding Lady Etain’s Irish Debit Card which somehow made it in her luggage. They found the two big faerie figurines which were ordered and was the main reason for the jaunt down south to retrieve them. Packed up with more goodies and merchandise they headed back north home to White Salmon. It was a long journey and the further north they got, the lower the temperatures, freezing rain, and storm fronts awaiting them. They needed to retire to a hotel that night outside of Portland as the roads into the gorge were dangerously slippery and icy.
