We made it!

The engine went on at 3.30p and the parking brake came off at 3.40p. We were on our way. Since our plan for the day was Nevada or bust (that was back when our plan was departure at noon), we went for it anyway. 6 or so hours later w/o a break for dinner or bathroom (at least for me, your humble driver) we pulled into the Desert Rose RV park. Exhausted. Well, Martha and I were. The kids had plenty of energy. I think we managed lights out at 11.15p. And in the desert, things wake up early. It'll be a tough day, but this time we should be on the road at 10a. We'll see.


  1. Congratulations on executing the plan! Too bad Land Shark doesn't come with a kid-sized "hamster wheel" or treadmill. :-)

    Be sure to add links (http://www.desertroserv.com/) so we can follow vicariously.

  2. What I wouldn't do for a hamster wheel. or a cattle prod...
