General Conference Trip: Driving Up

Friday, March 31st, 2006

Flip those fake swear words!The day began too early for me. I was still exhausted from the previous day when I woke up. We left at around 9:30 to go to Salt Lake from Las Vegas. On the way we stopped for breakfast at McDonalds. We ordered One Sausage McMuffin without egg and two Egg McMuffin meals. As we drove out and I began handing out the food I found in the bag two Sausage McMuffins, two Egg McMuffins, and three hash browns. They had given us an extra Sausage McMuffin and an extra Hash Brown! I guess that makes up for all the times I didn’t get all the stuff I ordered but still had to pay for at other fast food places.

Driving through Provo was interesting as usual. The billboards there seem to be the most Mormon-centric of anywhere in Utah. There are many businesses looking to woo missionaries with their special discounts even on seemingly unrelated items. If you have a missionary on your billboard you can’t go wrong because everyone will look at it.

We arrived with little hassle. There was some horrible traffic for a while, but all’s well that ends well. General Conference is tomorrow and it looks like rain… as usual.
