Well, we drove more than 1,500 miles across the country without a hitch. The biggest problem we had was getting off of the freeway after nine and a half hours of driving only find that our hotel was missing. Travelodge failed to mention to me that they hadn't changed their sign from Ramada Inn when I made the reservation. Then, I got back on the freeway going the wrong way and onto another freeway all together. Claud was following me in a twenty six foot truck and my dad was behind him in another car. We were all tired and hungry. It was a caravan gone bad. Eventually, we figured it out and got to our hotel. Thank goodness this was the worst of all of it. I was nervous with all of the crazy weather happening all over the country. It was smooth sailing the whole way with only a few damp roads. No major rain.
