Trip started out 2 hours later than I had wanted but figured it was just a bump in the road to see how serious I was about making this trip with 2 kids and one small dog to go get one big dog:0) Once that was cleared our trip went uneventful. I did end up getting a BRAND SPANKIN NEW red 2010 Nissan Sentra. Had all of 6 miles on the odometer...I still have to keep looking at it like~ seriously? really?? is that it? Can't say I have ever driven a car so new...kinda a neat feeling! At first felt really weird to drive after being so use to driving my F350 dually crewcab pickup! No real headroom and had I had long legs no leg room and windshield is RIGHT there! But after driving it I realized even with my back issues my back didn't hurt after 500 miles on this first day. So hubby may not want to hear I like a Nissan...lol.
Very cute car I do like it, but have to admit I wouldn't want the car payment.
Inger decided she was definitely not going. Her words were small car, 8 days, me and my brother one of us will not survive and I am willing to bet it will not be me...lol. Alrighty then tell us how you really feel. So we let she and Paige stay with my "sister" and her family....My thoughts are with them. Love you Inger and really do miss you, but didn't miss hitting every potty stop or bickering with your brother in the backseat due to lack of space. I do think there is less interior space than in the Neon so it wouldn't have been pretty.
Chip found her perfect spot unless there was songs on with good bass going....
Apparently the back dash on my pillow as her thrown was just perfect:0)
It does feel funny having only 2 kids with me on this trip and no Paige. I guess Paige decided she missed me too as she didn't eat until this evening. Guessing the 2 girls will be happy to see me when we get back. So our trip went very uneventful this first stretch. Our first nights stop has been Belle Fourche SD. Nearly 500 miles which is my daily goal is no less than 500 miles. We will get a much earlier start tomorrow and drive as long as I can and stop. I only had tonights motel reserved as I figured we should at least make it this far. I do have our ending stop reserved as well since they allowed the reservation of both nights of possibles to arrive and I can cancel the other one that is not needed. Must be very slow to allow that, was nice though... that way I still get the advanced reservation discount:0)
Not much really to report now other than my babbling. OH yes there is Benjamin had to pee at one point so bad that he was in tears but didn't say anything. After he got to relieve himself he started laughing saying he had to pee sooo bad that he couldn't fart. So he is providing a little comedy for the road in place of Ingers absence.
