Janet and I really enjoy driving through the desert. Good thing because we will travel 1200 miles along I-10 over the first 4 days of our trip. 300 miles a day is about right for all of us: me for driving, cats handle it well, and Janet navigates with the Road Atlas and 'Next Exit' book. For a smooth day of driving we need to know where the truck stops and rest stops are.
I am feeling really good right now, because I am waking at 5:30 and the cats are still sleeping! We are on Central Time! No more 4 AM wake ups! I have been joking for the past 2 months that Mack and Holly are still on Eastern Time, but it is really no joke!
