So far, so good!

This is by far the longest road trip I've ever taken. Google told me the time it would take in days, not hours! Thats 1 day and 7 hours of driving time, not counting stops! That's 31 hours. Not counting traffic, weather, and stops. Not counting a few minor detours to visit friends and relatives. Not counting Starbucks drive through lines. This is a long, long trip.
The longest trip I've ever taken before involved a trip to Johnson City, TN, which took 3 days, followed by a trip from there through St. Louis, then to Wyoming, and finally back to Albuquerque. That trip involved all of my siblings, a lot of fussing/crying/screaming, a sister who got out of the car at a gas station about 2 hours from our destination and refused to get back in, and eventually a broken down vehicle in the middle of a Wyoming snow storm and a can of sterno on the dashboard of the van we were towing and about fifteen people piling into one suburban. 
Hopefully, none of those crazy things will happen on this trip. I am so happy to have my wonderful Dad with me to keep me company and take turns driving! 
I hope the middle of your week is flying by! Have a great day!


  1. Thanks for the update on your trip! I am glad your Dad and you are having a good time! I am keeping my fingers crossed that your trip doesn't have any problems

  2. Hey you just wish you'd thought of refusing to get back in the car first! That WAS a crazy trip...hope yours is a lot less crazy than that one! Wish I could go with you guys...
