We're on the Road!

Hi all --

So I wanted to say thanks once again to everyon that gave me the great advice on traveling with our Hav's. Lynda and Snickers and I took off today for a 16 day road trip - We started the day leaving the Bay area and headed up I-580 to the I-205 to the I-5 and finally got off the freeway and took Ca-4 over the Sierra Nevada via Ebbetts Pass.

Snicks and Lynda at the top of the hill!

We then headed down the hill to US-395 where we made a stop at the Mono Lake overlook where Snickers was able to do her part to make sure the lake never dried up.

Snicks and Lynda at the overlook.

We ran down US-395 and then turned Left onto Ca-120 and took it to Benton Hot Springs were we picked up US-6 and took it into Tonopah, Nv. Were we are now firmly ensconced in our Best Western.

We're continuing both South and East tomorrow -- hope to have a photo or two to share then.

Snicks only got a little car sick today -- hopefully tomorrow will be a smooth non sick day.


Jim and Lynda and Snickers too!

Day TWO!!

We left Tonopah, Nv. this morning and we could tell that Snikers was a bit nervous, almost as though she knew today was going to be a day for some very strange sights and new experiences.

We left Tonopah and headed both East and a little South. The further we went the more agitated Snickers became.

With good reason -->

Our first clue was a highway sign.

Then a forced stop at a 'other worldly' building that seemed to speak to the 'others'.

Snickers was not impressed. I think the Aliens were angry enough to try and abduct her.

I (Snickersdad) was finally able to negotiate a release of all three of us with the provisio that we would notify the residents of Utah that is was indeed possible to navigate the ET hughway and survive without assimilation. We promised we'd head to Utah by the most direct route.

We spent a good deal of time with the officials in Ceder City, Ut. delivering the mornings messages and they promised that they would try and spread the word. Snickers was thrilled, and promptly set off digging a very big hole.

I know she's saying "See Dad! I made this big' ole hole in the ground. I really like the red color -- "

We decided we'd call her work "Cedars Break National Monument.
