The Trip 2002
Can you imagine loading up a van with 3 teenagers, 1 baby, 2 dogs and a husband and wife to travel halfway across the country? Do they survive? One of the teenagers has studied the Donner Party trip and she packed bbq sauce in her suitcase. One of the dogs is a ridgeback, to those who don't know, they are their own methane greenhouse gas ozone destroying machine. Follow along as we document this event.
Day 1: Home (Stockton Ca.
to Mt. Hualapai County Park Az. (South of Kingman)
We left Stockton at 6:00 am.
These kids are way too awake for getting up that early.
The dogs have the right idea
We listen to the Lord of the Rings book on CD.
We should be on the road long enough to finish it.
It seemed like it took forever to get out of California, to celebrate, we had to stop for local eats.
We're sure glad Arizona has Dairy Queen's
We arrived at Hualapai Mountain just south of Kingman Az.
It was about 20 degrees cooler than the desert floor.
The night after we left it snowed.
