I've learned some things on this trip. Yesterday, we discovered that most highways in Oregon are 80 MPH. Excellent! And, did you know that every gas station in Oregon, before 6 PM, is REQUIRED BY LAW to pump your gas for you? Neither did I. I made our first fueling stop in Oregon early yesterday and almost put my credit card in the reader, but decided to go in and do cash instead. Little did I know how close I was to literally breaking the state law!
Earlier today, we drove 5 hours to get to Pocatello. It wasn't too bad, though, because we made a stop at the Snake river canyon, very close to the site of Evel Kneivel's rocket-cycle jump in 1974. This place is quite the sight to see!
The canyon is located in Twin Falls, Idaho. I'd highly recommend seeing it if you're ever out this way. The Perrine bridge crosses the canyon and it's incredible as well- it's the eighth highest bridge in the United States. It's also one of the few structures in the world where BASE jumping is legal.
Upon arriving at the venue for tonight's show, we got set up in record time. The crowd was amazing! The house was packed and everyone was there to have a great time. Our finale worked perfectly tonight- I won't give too much away, but let's just say that it's dependent on baby Eli deciding he's going to cooperate. He's such a good baby! Tonight he did perfect.
So, the next time we get the opportunity to come out this way, I really hope we can perform at Rocky Mountain Ministries again. Then again, I'd love to bring a repeat performance to every venue we've visited so far. The northwestern USA has been wonderful so far. My kids are getting to see so many things they'd never see any other way. We are truly blessed to have this opportunity!
Tonight we're stopping in Idaho falls. Tomorrow we move on to Bozeman, Montana for two shows in the Gallatin Valley Mall. If anyone's out this way, come enjoy a fast paced big illusion show for free, courtesy of the mall!
