Are we there yet??

Well, after 2 days of driving we finally arrived. Dad, cat and I are all pretty darn happy to see that sign! (You can click on it for a larger view...)

Overall it was a nice uneventful trip with a few cool stops along the way like Andersen's pea soup at the windmill, and that dusty, iconic diner at the top of the pass in Desert Center (click the link and read up on the history of this little spot when you're done reading my little update - trust me it's mighty interesting) where I ventured onto their old scale from about 1930-something and got my weight and fortune for a penny!

The sign read "the price hasn't changed in over 75 years!" so how could I resist?

My fortune? "Avoid unnecessary risks for the next few years." Apparently after that I can just go hog wild. WooHoo!

I guess a penny spent is a fortune earned...

Movin' right along...

The day is here - loading the truck and leaving in the morning. There's just something about a moving truck that says "well, you're in for it now - no turning back."

I better go have a second cuppa joe!
