On solid ground again:
"Diane, 10:30 A.M. *kissing noises* Back on solid ground. I should say solid asphalt. Iím on my hands and knees in the parking lot of the branch office in Spokane. Iím picking up a Bureau car. *Yelling to someone* ĎNo, no, no, Iím all right! Just thankful to be alive.í"
"Looks like Iíll be heading out Highway 2, due east. Iíve got about two hours of driving ahead of me. Thatíll include lunch, one pit stop and two cups of coffee, unless I refill my thermos. And, Diane, for the last fifteen miles, Iím supposed to look out for deer on the highway. Man, wouldnít that be something?"
