Utah, Idaho & Washington

It's all meetings, potatoes and some Tuesday afternoon quarterbacking in Idaho

After looping in Utah the day before, Day 16 would be a return to a three-State day for the team on The Road to 50 States. They left Salt Lake early and after a brief look at some planes at Hill Aerospace Museum, they flew up I-84 to Idaho, where they would spend the bulk of the day in State Capital, Boise. The reason for this was all three of the day's interviewees being located in the city, so right after lunch they visited Facible Biodiagnostics, Idaho Technology Council and Burst Biologics. The gorgeous weather made highway travel, car painting and even car cleaning a pleasure, and once the real work was done, Emilee allegedly scored a touchdown at Albertsons Stadium, home of the Boise State Broncos and the Idaho Potato Bowl. They took the day to overtime, so the two cars had a dusk and nighttime run into Washington State and their overnight stop in Union Gap.
