Road Trip West

A trip via auto, west to California and return.

The Trip

Barb and I are leaving soon for a two-week driving excursion. I have a (mostly) planned itinerary, but won’t go into detail at this point. I’ll post as we make our way along to keep the readers (thousands, I’m sure) wondering where we’ll be next. I’m writing this on Thursday, August 27, 2015. Our plan […]

The Trip - Day 1

The Trip – Day 1

We left home this morning at 5:38. I had a difficult time loading all the stuff in the car, but Barb took over the job and, as usual, made everything fit. We stopped at Starbucks at Village of Coventry for caffeine, then got on I 69 and headed south. In Indy we took I 465 […]

The Trip - Day 2

The Trip – Day 2

Barb and I woke up this morning in the Comfort Suites hotel on West I-40 in Oklahoma City, OK, after having driven 698 miles yesterday getting here from Fort Wayne. I’m not implying that it was a surprise to wake up in that particular place. It’s just that when you drive so many miles in […]

The Trip - Day 3

The Trip – Day 3

August 31, 2015 Barb and I crawled out of bed at 4:30 this morning. That’s 7:30 back in Fort Wayne, so I guess we actually overslept. We had neighbors in an adjacent room last night and we met them at the breakfast table. They’re from Denver and are first time visitors like us. One thing […]

The Trip - Day 4

The Trip – Day 4

Tuesday, September 1, 2015 We keep getting out of bed at 4:30 local time. It still seems like oversleeping, since we’re usually up between 6 and 6:30 at home. Another fine breakfast at Whispering Creek B & B this morning. The couple we’re now calling J & J (because their names each start with J […]

The Trip - Day 5

The Trip – Day 5

Wednesday, September 2, 2015 We enjoyed another tasty breakfast and lively conversation at the Whispering Creek B & B this morning. It’s nice to visit other places, and even nicer when you’ve made new friends. After breakfast, we loaded the car with our stuff, said goodbye to J & J and our gracious hostess Cheryl, […]

The Trip - Day 6

The Trip – Day 6

Thursday, September 3, 2015 I failed to mention a few things about the Whispering Creek B & B in Sedona. First, besides serving delicious breakfasts, Cheryl puts a couple of bottles of wine and some snacks on the dining area countertop for her guests’ evening enjoyment. Also, the WiFi connection is excellent. There, now I’m […]

The Keating House

The Trip – Day 7

Friday, September 4, 2014 Rising for the 3rd time in The Linq, we weren’t quite as refreshed as we were the first two nights. It was noisy last night, with doors slamming, loud people in the hallway, and various and sundry sounds emanating from the room next door. We’re wondering if this is common in […]

Panda having lunch. Like some humans, Pandas spend up to 16 hours per day eating. The difference is that they eat bamboo. Try once eating bamboo for 16 hours.

The Trip – Day 8

Saturday, September 5, 2015 Barb and I got up at 6 a.m. No alarm, we just woke up at that time. Breakfast at the Keating House runs from 8 a.m. till 10. You can meander down to the dining room any time during those two hours and your breakfast will be ready for you. Our […]

The Trip - Day 9

The Trip – Day 9

Sunday, September 6, 2015 We had new breakfast companions this morning. A couple from somewhere in California had spent the night after bringing their daughter to San Diego to start college. Another couple were from San Diego and we learned little about them because they sat at a separate table and we didn’t talk to them […]
