The BIG Drive: Part 1

On my way out of CA I stopped at my local new & used bookstore (Bounty Books) and said a fond farewell to Darlene and Cindy. Of course I also walked out with eight books. ^_^

I have official completed leg 1 of 6. Leg high-lights:

1. The Sierra Nevada mountains are pretty. Lots of deep blue lakes and green evergreens.
2. Nevada is really boring to drive in. And they are doing so much road construction and have so many speed limit changes cruise control is almost useless.
3. Averaging 47.4 MPG (7.78 km/liter)
4. According to a billboard I saw, I've stop in the place that is "Half Way to Everywhere" Nevada. I'm thinking that its just another way of saying middle of nowhere. But that would describe most of Nevada.

And thanks for all the support. Moving to a new place won't be so hard with all of you out there. If I get lonely I know that all I have to do is go online and be instantly surrounded by my pals.

I love that you walked out of your local bookstore with eight books! And I'm glad to hear that Leg 1 went well :)

And yes, you don't even need to feel alone - we're all just a click away :)

The Sierra Nevada mountains are pretty. Lots of deep blue lakes and green evergreens.

You didn't see any SnowDancers, did you? LOL!

I love that you stopped at your favorite used bookstore on your way out of CA. I'm thinking it must be comforting to know you have some books beside you to keep you company!

Keep on truckin'!

(I always wanted to say that! LOL)
