Has it really been that long since I posted?
Lessons learned from a drive to Utah to see Grand Kids. #1 DO Not attempt to leave after an 8 hour day at work and expect to get there in one spell. #2 Make reservation at Green River, or Grand Junction, especially on a holiday. #3 Fast food is call fast food for a reason. Eat it, even if you don't care for it. It saves time. #4 The new insulated cups with the straw are marvelous for long distance drive. Easy to fill without spilling.Walk into the "gas station" Fill their very large cup full of ice. Add Gador-aid to the top. Go back to your cars and fill 2 glasses w/the ice, as they melt, they stay cold and you can see where you're going even with bifocals on. #5 Go over your "take with" list 3 times so you don't forget things and have to leave family to get what you need to fulfil a promise to a grandchild. Two this time.
#6 Don't plan to do much, the next day.
