About 10 years ago, we undertook a road trip from the US to Canada, the first time we had driven in the US and we thought it would be a good idea to do over 4000 miles! That Holiday changed our lives, it gives you the sense you can go anywhere and at the same time told me I had to Change the direction of my life! Years on we have done several long road trips in the US, including Route 66.
Last year going from Orlando to LA, this year when we planned the trip, we wanted to do a few less miles. I think its about 1200 miles this year, I have promised not to play the lets see how little fuel I can give the hire car back game which I enjoy so very much, even the Hertz return person thought the Dash had failed last year as we rolled in on Fumes
This year we will be traveling mostly around California, just dipping into Nevada. Perhaps a little less hectic than in previous years. Although the first part of the trip will mirror the early parts of the Route 66 Journey in particular staying again at Barstow, no two road trips are ever the same.
Really we should call this holiday - in search of the Cheese Cake factory, as I have a list of all those fine establishments from LA to San Francisco. Undoubtedly to all American's I will be Australian, but at least this year I don't have to try and understand Texan....
Now to download the California Driver's Manual - with a Foreword from Mr Terminator Himself, you have to say if the Transport Minister was the terminator you would take him seriously!
Oh yes apparently I have to pack... I have my laptop and my Mobile's - I'm packed!
Ps. I have been banned from posting the Movie of Caroline asleep on the Amtrak from Chicago to New York and have three weeks to recover from the injuries. L xx
