Today was a very long day. I didn't have a whole lot planned except driving for 12 hours from Winnipeg, MB to Billings, MT covering 769 miles. I was planning on leaving around 5 or 6 am but I couldn't sleep so I left home around 2 am.
Yesterday I stopped at Bulk Barn and bought raw almonds and chocolate covered pretzels for the trip. I also bought two cases of diet Mountain Dew. I know it's unhealthy but it's my favourite source of caffeine for long drives.
So I snacked and drank a ton of caffeine which meant that I stopped about 8 times to go to the bathroom. The drive wasn't too bad other than the fact that I was working on a hour of sleep. I got to Billings around 2:30 in the afternoon and took a nap for about 90 minutes.
I then went to Queen of Hearts Card Club and played 3/6 limit until the game broke a hour later. I lost $65, the players were really passive and basically calling stations but I couldn't make a hand to save my life. Oh well. I then went to The Poker Parlor and played for about a hour. Again I lost, this time $59. They served Shepards pie for dinner which was really tasty. I remember why I don't play limit poker... it's really boring!
Tomorrow I'm driving to Elko, NV.
