road trip day 1: blown

Today we jumped the gun a bit and started our road trip a day early. Having done these a lot, we packed up the car at 3 pm with the idea of at least shaving off a couple hundred miles.

After a short stop at #1's apartment in order to say goodbye to the newlyweds, we were off. A quick pull through for some food and then forward, with the plan to reach Rawlins, Wyoming. Mission accomplished.

#3 has been given the job of trip historian, tweeting our journey as we go. He is @kinglearb if you choose to follow. :). #4 is our financial guy. His job is to enter each expenditure into the ledger. He knows the budgeted categories and will keep track of how we are doing. Hotels, gas, fun money. His deal.

We will go to 9 am sacrament mtg here in Rawlins, and then off to Lincoln, Nebraska.

Clever ways of involving the kids on the trip. We should have done that!

You are driving through some seriously boring country. Have fun being together.

Where the deer and the antelope roam.......
sounds like you have this trip "organized" to a tee. Like a coporation...everyone has a job to fill and be accountable for.
love that.
Keeps everyone involved and I like that.
Lots of teaching and learning opportunities in that I think.
BE SAFE

There is something I love about the 4 trees in Nebraska. They're so strong and lonely, all protective of their farm houses. I love them best at sunrise, somehow. I hope the whole trip is perfect.
