Post Route 66 Day 31

Travel day again and we were still staying in Utah but moved to the eastern part of the state. We had about a 3 1/2 hour drive from Quail Creek to Millsite State Park and we had to be out by 11 so we were on the road by 10. Quail Creek didn't have a dump station so we...

Post Route 66 Day 30

As uneventful as yesterday was, today was a beaut. I woke up ready for a day of kayaking and teaching the dog to swim in the water. But as I sat up it felt like my ear was wet. Well it was but not with water but blood. My whole right ear was covered in blood and so...

Post Route 66 Day 29

Today we leave Nevada for Utah, one state closer to home. Although I wasn't feeling homesick, I was getting a little tired of constantly moving sites. It was a fairly short drive, just 2 1/2 hours (which is 3 1/2 with Keith) and we got to Quail Creek State park at...

Post Route 66 Day 28

Because the frig was on gas and one of our tanks had run out in Joshua Tree, we wanted to get the other tank refilled. So we went into Overton. There was no place to fill so we had to exchange the tank. Gas was too expensive so we held off on that. We knew we could...

Post Route 66 Day 27

Moving day again. We said goodbye to Diana and Dennis last night so we just had to pack up and get on the road. We had a 5 hour drive through the desert so we got a fairly early start. We also had to drive the many California freeways which always makes Keith feel...

Post Route 66-California Days 23 to 26

Since we aren't travelling for a few days and since technically the Route 66 portion of our trip is over, I'm combining the rest of our time in California into one post. Mostly because a lot of it was just my sisters and I talking, drinking and eating. And we sure did...

Route 66 Day 22

The last day of Route 66 travel.  It seemed a little surreal but it was finally here. We woke up early, not because of the planes but just because. We cleaned up a bit and then I wanted to take a bike ride.  We had hauled the bikes along with us specifically to ride...

Route 66 Day 21

Freeways. They are the fastest way (most of the time) to get from point A to point B while driving. But let me tell you there are freeways and then there are California Freeways. We left camp fairly early, like 10:30 for the 3 hour drive into LA.  We went through...

Route 66 Day 20

Although we are in the desert, the nights are really cold.  Last night the temperature got down into the low 50's. Yet when the sun came up and we woke up, the temp climbed quickly so that by 8am it was in the upper 70's. I thought I would like living in a desert kind...

Route 66 Day 19

Another travel day today and the second to the last leg of the Route 66 part of our trip. We got up and just had cereal because we had a very long day of travel ahead of us. Although we couldn't take Route 66 the whole way because of road conditions and pulling a...

Route 66 Day 18

We started our day early and tried to decide what to do to today. Since we had already done the Grand Canyon and Williams, we decided to visit some of the other National Historical sites around Flagstaff. But first, I wanted to kayak. This was the first place where we...

Route 66 Day 17

Deciding to do as many national, state and county campgrounds as possible and the fact that the stop after this one had virtually no campgrounds at all along the way meant this next stop was only an hour away from the Grand Canyon. We were camping at Kaibab Lake...
