I called Mom at 7 pm tonight:
Mom: Hello
Me: I forgot to tell you I was hiking up Saddle Mountain today. It's getting dark and I'm starting down now.
Mom: WHAT??? You've got to be kidding me!
Mom & I together: April Fools!
Mom: You are the only one who has gotten me today. I am going to get you back. You are in so much trouble. I'm going to get you.
I did pass Saddle Mountain on the way to Seaside today but didn't stop. I stopped at the leather shop and bought 2 leather coats for $20 each, then at the hat shop I picked up a summer hiking hat, though that was $30 but it will definitely be a lot cooler than the black wool hat I use now. It also has a strap to keep the wind from blowing it off the top of my head which worked out very well on my long walk down the beach. I do have pictures of Cannon Beach to post later.
I bought 3 books from the bookstore in Cannon Beach. An autographed copy of Alphabet of Dreams by Susan Fletcher (local author!) based in the Persian and Roman Empires of the first century AD, The Guns of August by Barbara Tuchman about the first days of World War I, and Echoes of Eagles by Charles Woolley also about World War I and America's first fighter pilots.
And I got the truck washed once I got back home! I also have one empty gas tank already but hey, I had fun. Except for that person doing 5 mph below the speed limit until they got to a passing lane and then sped up to 10 mph over the limit so no one could pass them. That was so irritating.

Ahhh you have two gas tanks, don't you?

Yep, it's a Ford. :)

I was wondering why your gas bill was so much. Dad had a truck with two tanks once, a silver Ford I think.

It's because I Can't Drive 55 so I'm always Running on Empty! :D

I want to go to Cannon Beach someday. It sounds like such a neat place. Too far away, though, I think. How in the world did you find a leather coat for $20???

It's about as far west as you can drive from Portland - 90 miles, about an hour and a half drive!

http://www.leatherthatworks.com/ Although they've discontinued the coats, they still have plenty of other leather goods for $20 or less.
