Follow The Huskies On The Road To Pullman
Jan. 28, 2010
3:15 PM: The Huskies will make their trek across the mountain pass and to the Palouse the old-fashioned way - on a bus. With weather on the Eastern side of the state hovering in the 40s, it meant the passes are clear enough to traverse in the comforts of chartered bus service. When there's snow in the forecast, the Huskies will fly to either Pullman or Lewiston, Idaho.
This means bring your pillows and blankets, your iPods and all other forms of electronic entertainment. It's going to be a long trip. Google Maps has the trip taking 5 hours and 16 minutes, with some added time for the size of the vehicle we're traveling in. Because of the travel, the Huskies will have a somewhat early curfew tonight at their hotel in Moscow, Idaho.
It should be noted that bus trips with the Huskies are a fun experience. While some athletes choose to sleep, there is definitely a lot of joking and laughter that comes from the back of the bus. Sometimes, Sara Mosiman will tote along her guitar and belt out a few tunes. Or someone will crank up the tunes on the iPod and turn the charter bus into a regular Karaoke party. Out of all of the Huskies, Christina Rozier is the leader when it comes to no fear performing in front of a crowd.
The focus for the Huskies on this trip, though, is pure business, i.e. pick up a W. The team will be in Eastern Washington for less than 24 hours, so there will be much downtime for the Dawgs.
