What You Learn On The Road...

But before we get to the list here is a review of some great photos from today...


This is the perfect way to pack. We so did it wrong...

Just what you want to see when you are ordering your Starbucks...


Started in Texas...

Ended up in Texas...

Do you know how large the state of Texas is? It is huge! Driving all day and we are still not all the way through. It got to the point that the GPS Garmin stopped telling us how many miles we had to go. Instead it just said Eternity in the corner of the screen.

In this long drive today, my mother and I have made a small list of what we learned while confined to a small space, in the hot sun together.

In no particular order...

1. When a billboard says Mobiloil on it, it is not pronounced Mobi Loil

2. The company web address www.sucasateam.com is not pronounced Suc As A Team

3. Do not put toothpaste on your face after using face scrub

4. When the GPS Garmin Nuvi with the up to date traffic reports has a picture of a small car upside down on it, doesn't mean the car is sleeping

5. One big wheeler (Mac truck) towing 3 of the same big wheelers does not mean they are all cuddling.

6. When the dog is anxious to get back into the car, she needs to wait until we have unloaded the boxes in her way or she will splat up against them and slowly slide back down.

7. Look down when walking in Texas, or you may kick a headless cockroach the size of a golf ball.

And finally...
If there is a line of cars in the middle of nowhere they probably all have a Garmin they are following.



Tomorrow is the big day. We arrive in Arizona...only after going all the way through New Mexico. Small hurdle but after Texas I feel like we can accomplish anything.

See you tomorrow....
