We’re so excited! We spent all day driving today and only stopped in Colorado Springs to get food. I find that I tolerate Chipotle’s gluten-free burrito bowl really well so we’ve been able to get that when we’re on the road. Unfortunately, the bag the food came in was badly contaminated and I didn’t think to test it before Brett put it in the car.
Brett threw the bag out immediately but it was too late. The contamination got on my hands and my clothing, on the phone, and on the dashboard of the car. I rinsed my hands but the terrible itching didn’t stop. Then I got a rash up both arms. I took a deep breath and tried not to freak out. We could go to Walmart and get cheap t-shirts, pants and gentle soap to decontaminate. We did exactly that and the Walmart ended up being really good. I didn’t react to anything Brett got. Woohoo!
I scrubbed my arms and hands really well with soap and they felt much better. Then I rinsed my head, face, arms, lower legs and feet. I got in the car, changed clothes and felt much better immediately. Phew! Brett decontaminated too. Then we took a clean t-shirt and wiped the dashboard and phone with a little bit of soap and continued on our journey. We can’t wait to get to Wyoming!
