First Stop

First stop on our 1,200 mile road trip to Seattle is... Las Vegas?

Yes, Vegas. We're stopping over there for a few days to see Dex's daddy & hang out before the big push to the PacNW. He's making the drive with us, thank goodness!

We're still working on our route post-Vegas; guess we'll just have to see where the road takes us. As long as it points northward-ish that is. We'll have a few days to figure it out since we're not actually leaving until Monday. I'm kind of looking forward to NOT thinking until then. My brain is utterly FRIED from the past month of moving plans & house selling stress (all while trying to remotely manage the major remodel going on at my house in Seattle).

Maybe I'll take a little break over at Red Rocks. A facial & a pedicure would sure be nice. So would a cold liquor drink & sticking my nose deep into a good book out by the pool. Dex's daddy should let me run away from Mommy Duty for a couple hours, right?

Dex's daddy should let you run away for MANY hours! Enjoy your brief break, you've certainly earned it. Good luck with the rest of the journey.

I am a AAA member too Mark, and I loaded up w/ TONS of maps & guide books, etc. before I left CA. LOL. I'm such a prepared, neurotic nerd.
