Mileage 8009.8, on the road at 8:38 a.m. This was an exceptionally long day spent in the car; for some silly reason we decided to drive all day with the goal of reaching my Uncle Bob’s house before nightfall. I’m not sure why we didn’t break it up into a two day drive, considering there were many different places we could have set up camp.

The next few days were spent with my Uncle Bob, his wife Aunt Willie, and their daughter. This was a welcomed rest from the long drive, I was also able to do some laundry
