Only 457 More to Go!

We traveled 1010 miles today! It was unbelievable! It helps that the further west we got, the higher the speed limit was. Sadly, however, at 80 mph, the car (with the trailer in tow) only gets about 13.8 miles per gallon. This means we have to stop for gas ever 2 1/2 hours!

We entertained ourselves by listening to the Peach Cobbler Murders and Someone to Love. Lots of murder and a little bit of love sprinkled in. I'd like to say they made driving a pleasure, but 16 hours in a car is quite a bit. Crystal said the second day was easier than the first day. She learned to accept her fate.

Our poor old car is straining to drag the U-haul across country. The bubble mirror is loose, so I put a band-aid on it to keep it from falling off. The air conditioner has been less than stellar, so we actually had to travel with the windows open for about 45 minutes during the hottest part of the day. We're hoping to get to Provo around 2:30 p.m. tomorrow. We can't wait!

  1. I'm glad you are listening to Someone to Love. It took me to Provo once too. But then I didn't have so far to go!
