Day 1: dry, dirt, desert

And the adventure begins! About 600 miles driven today, and tonight Jan and I are in Kingman, Arizona. That's not the most exciting drive. Flat central valley, and dry desert. The trip finally seemed "real" when we left the central valley and headed east into what is (for me) uncharted territory.

I probably won't get a chance to blog or upload photos every day, but I'll do it when I can. My wireless internet card doohickie doesn't seem to work anymore on this old laptop for some reason, but I'm plugged into the wall tonight. This all takes me forever, I'm using different programs and it takes me a while to edit the pics!

Pics, yeah, I'm putting them all in an album instead of posting them here. Makes life easier for me. So, want to have a vicarious road trip? Here ya go!

The Cross-Country Adventure!

Looks fun! No Hwy 395 though? 395 is quite pretty, though not too quick...

No, we wanted to, but due to new snow in the Sierras getting to the other side up north would have taken quite a lot of extra time and miles. So maybe we'll do that on a weekend trip some time.

Okay, look for a really super yummy lunch or dinner at a Cracker Barrel. The nearest one to California is in Kingman, AZ. They have super cute chickeny things and cute clothing but I recommend the fried apples. They are not what you think! Do it if you can! -BMc.
