If it's Wednesday it Must be Nebraska

Well we're back - and we're sooooo very tired.

We left Oakland at 1pm on Tuesday and arrived home this morning at 8am - so if we do the math it means we were on the road for, well a long time anyway.

Scott and I took it in shifts, sleeping and driving and eating - but we made it through. Happily that means that either of us missed a fair amount of the country due to unconsciousness or darkness, sadly though we did see most of the boring stuff.

We hit tons and tons of one-lane closures through California, Nevada, Wyoming, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois and Michigan. So that means that the only states we didn't have to slow down to 55mph was Utah and Indiana (which were the two shortest states of course). In fact we probably could have made better time if we hadn't hit so much construction.

Dad's little car did really well across the country - even though it was insanely fast it was a fun trip.

In case you weren't sure, I've decided to do NaBloPoMo - not that you weren't fascinated by my cross-country pictures. I'm thinking that keeping myself distracted for a while would be a very god thing. And my Dad was a huge fan of my photo-a-day at Photoblog, so it seems like a good thing.

Current Music: catching up on my Tivo, I have been gone for a bit.

I have a 10 hour car trip ahead of me today and no driving partner, just a baby in the backseat and a 11 year old neice to be on paci patrol. Aren't you glad your home?
I hate road trips, especially when I have to drive. If I can sleep it's no problem though.
