The gas station at Furnace Creek Ranch is even higher. Of course, when I visit Death Valley I fill up in Beatty, Nevada where gas is $3.00 per gallon cheaper.
I have a new girlfriend in Ohio. The gas in Ohio is cheaper but at 140 miles for an out and back to see her I’m still spending about $100 a week. The cheapest I saw it on Saturday was $3.89 but I had just filled up at $4.09. We haven’t talked about where we want to live yet. That day is coming.
Mrs. Newleaf and I watched it, but only the race. She timed it beautifully re: catching the race without all the pre-race commentary. She is a former English style equestrian competitor. I literally learned to read once upon a time because of 'The Black Stallion' series. These days I prefer mounts made of metal which don't think for themselves, but the potential for a Triple Crown continues to capture my imagination.To be honest, I don't know anyone who watched the race.
