“Standing on a corner in Winslow Arizona” OK to tell the truth we blew right by Winslow but did stop for the night in Flagstaff, after a couple weeks in the scorching heat the cooler weather here actually feels good and after driving all day I was ready to kick back for a bit.
We left out a little later than we had planned and stopped a little earlier but that’s OK, we went by to see Benjamin and wake up Tim and Elisa to say goodbye and that wasn’t easy, I thought we were going to have to call in the National Guard, Air Force, State and City Police... (I could go on and on but you get the picture) to pry that baby out of Granny’s arms heck I almost didn’t get to hold him without a promise that I would give him back to her, needless to say it was hard but I have faith he is going to do just fine.
The drive so far has been filled with Orange cones, barrels and flashing signs that has restricted our 75 MPH speed limit anywhere from 35 to looking for an exit, good thing is we were only stopped after I hit something in the road that came from under the truck in front of me, it made a heck of a racket and bounced the van hard enough to rouse Cindy from her slumber bringing her to yell out asking me what I had done, I told her I hit something but really wasn’t sure what it was, I thought she was going to cry there for a minute until I went on to tell her it wasn’t something that was alive, I pulled over to check for damage to which I found none but another driver wasn’t as lucky, the piece of metal which I only briefly saw before I hit it and saw it fly end over end towards the side of the road behind me through the rearview mirror, I think it may have been part of a sign and post and at 80MPH it disappeared pretty fast. It had punctured his tire and I think by the time he got stopped it may have cost him a rim also, we made sure he had help on the way and needed no assistance and went on our way.
Like I told you before we picked up a laptop while we were in New Mexico and I am in the process of learning how this works, I am not used to being able to get on the internet while on the road and after my post on Surviving Technology here I am Learning the laptop and reporting to you “Live From The Road”, OK I’ll admit that I am having fun and hopefully the next post will be live from my desktop at home.
