Day 6: Suicide Mission, Part 1

The Suicide Mission started, naturally, at 2 o'clock in the morning. Jon decided on this time because it would give him time before hitting the road to grab a pita from Pita Pit, which closes at 3am (to cater to the late night/early morning bar-goers in Sodom-&-Gomorr-d'Alene). So, our heroes were rested with a maximum of 3 hours of sleep as they began their epic journey of the projected-20-hours-of-non-sleep.

Part 1 was for the most part uneventful. Max slept, and Jon watched the slow West Montana sunrise.

When Jon and Max passed I-15, which leads southward to Salt Lake City, Las Vegas, and eventually Sunny Southern California, they ceremonially belted at the top of their lungs the song "California" by Phantom Planet. Jon wore his goggles, Max his bandana. There was talk of the world, there was talk of starcraft, there was joking and singing.

It would not be until later, in Mid-Montana, after switching from the 90 to the 94, that Jon and Max would encounter......

  1. You know that one picture that everyone says is "the essence of Max"? Well, I think this is the new essence of Max shot. Also, he should make it his profile picture.
