The road trip fight

In the summer of 2001 we drove up the west coast for vacation.

It was two weeks of heaven, with one day of hell tacked on the end.

Our last stop was the Monterey Bay Aquarium. By then we had seen Hearst Castle, Carmel Beach, the California Redwoods, The Santa Cruz Boardwalk, the Rogue River, Seattle, Victoria Canada and San Francisco.

We were tired. The kids were 6 and 8.

Several hours from home they started this:

“Stop saying OK!” “OK!”

They didn’t stop until they fell asleep 40 miles from our driveway.

They did this naturally, but only because I didn’t have access to chloroform.

    Lucky, you went up the west coast!!!
    I’d always wished on traveling around that area (Northern California, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, etc.)!
    Every trip has an experience that is never forgotten.

    So where will I go next…
    And what will I remember from my past travels?

    I do remember that some long road trips suck.
    For instance every year I go down to Mexico by car. (except the one year I flew down there)

    My dad drives from here to Phoenix, down to Nogales, down the desert states of Sonora and Sinaloa and arrive at either Tepic or Guadalajara.
    That one-way route takes about 4 days.

    I hate sitting 8-12hrs. a day for 4 days with nothing to do except wondering what I’ll eat and wishing the heat would stop rising.

    But that was then where I survived all those miserable days that happen every year.
    So what will happen next?
    Time will tell…
