I went to bed conflicted on the next day’s travel plan. The most direct course for home was to head toward Memphis, Tennessee, a straight shot to Birmingham. For some reason, I was drawn to Louisville, Kentucky. I had been to Louisville as a child, with my family so it wasn’t like I hadn’t seen … More Day 21- Should I Stay or Should I Go?
Next stop, St. Louis. After the chain of events in the Chicago traffic, I was a little gun shy about going into another big city. I found a park just across the river and got some awesome shots of the Gateway to the West, the classic Arch. The weather cooperated for the photos. It rained … More Day 20- St. Louis from a Safe Distance
I had only one goal for the day, make the drive to Chicago, get a quick picture of Wrigley Field, then get out. The only reason I was going? I just wanted to see the field where Babe Ruth called the famous home run shot. Thought it would be an easy in and out situation, not … More Day 19- More than a Picture
I drove clear across Nebraska today! The skies were overcast and the road was bumpy. It made me extremely sleepy, like the lull that puts a baby to sleep when riding in the car. There were dried up corn fields everywhere, so not a lot of exciting scenery to keep me engaged. It was dang … More Day 18- No Casserole for You!
I had my sights on Denver, Colorado as the next stop over in the journey back home. The cold morning in Wyoming started off with strong coffee, prayer and meditation. I gassed up and hit the road. Snow covered the ground but all roads were back open. I-80 had been closed in some parts due … More Day 17- Here’s to Clean Slates
As I back-tracked through Idaho, to finally get on I-80 towards Cheyenne, Wyoming, I kept seeing brown historical signs along the way. I was almost to Wyoming when one of these Historial site just ahead signs peaked my curiosity. I took American History in college 3 times before I passed, so for me to take an … More Day 16- Lessons of The Oregon Trail
This day was one for the books, I experienced 4 states! This was all in the name of seeing Yellowstone National Park. I might have slightly extended myself. Left Utah, passed through Idaho, came to Montana then, just through the entrance to the park…Bam…I’m in Wyoming. Yellowstone was well worth the effort. Where else can … More Day 15- 4 States in One Day
The journey to Salt Lake City was another full day of meditation. The views were beautiful, in spite of the rain. The light rain and billowing clouds actually added a certain mystery to the mountains. For me, the scenery was very peaceful. Here are a few pictures so you can understand what I’m trying to … More Day 14- Salt Lake City
My son, Joseph came to say goodbye and wish me safe travels this morning. It was a very sad moment for me and I did not want to leave him or San Francisco but, it was time. As I said farewell, I prepared myself for another day on the road. The trip home was not … More Day 13- Goodbye California
Since I didn’t get to see The Golden Gate Bridge yesterday due to tired feet, the challenge was on today. The forecast was not very hopeful as the chance for rain was imminent, but I was determined. The kids found a spot on the bay side that was supposed to have a lovely view so … More Day 12- The Hidden Golden Gate Bridge
