Road Trip...

"Listen to the soul
within for it will guide you
to places you never dared to
go and to exactly where
- you need to be."

~ by Eleesha,

Saturday we started our road trip... and headed East. Stopped in Selah WA and said happy father's day to my dad. Then pressed on to Pasco for the BBQ with the ARC racers, who will depart for their adventure tomorrow. We drove to Wasco Oregon to see Kathy and Kevin. Stopped in Redmond to say hi to Heather. Dropped into Bend to check out our daughters new home... and on down to California. 

The good ole suburban is on 199799.9 miles. Tomorrow we will break 200,000. But... I say "break" with caution, as she's been acting up ever since Pasco. But she a good old girl and if we can make it to Los Angeles, we'll have her looked at while we play in Disneyland with our eldest daughter and eldest granddaughter.

We spent the night in Willows last night. We hadn't planned on stopping there, but I saw a Holiday Inn Express next door to a Starbucks, and the car drove itself off the freeway exit. This is exactly where we needed to be. 453 miles to go today. We can do anything for 453 miles. And... they put us in the Presidential suite. Life is good.

Enjoy the Journey!

PS... I have two bumper stickers on my suburban... with a funny story attached. Take a guess what they say...Answer tomorrow.

  1. This is awesome Karlene! Sounds like an awesome trip. Isn't it funny how long it takes to go a few miles by car when you're flying on a regular basis, when you go thousands of miles around the world in just a few hours!

    Can't wait to see more updates! Thanks for sharing the photos,

  5. I am glad that your suburban is holding up. And I LOVE the FFC poster on the back Window!! Great marketing tool. I'll be taking mine with me when I go away next month as my loyal travel buddy.

    Wishing all the participants of the ARC LOTS OF LUCK!
