San Diego Trip – Day 5

I have never driven so much in such a short amount of time in my entire life. Today was another 10-hour drive from Sacramento, CA to Eugene, OR; with a few stops for food, gas and breaks.

One of the more amazing parts of the drive was seeing Mt. Shasta. We would come around the corner and it would just be there, right in front of us. It was very white with snow against the blue sky. It was an amazing sight to be seen.

Tomorrow is the last leg of our drive. We will leave Eugene in the morning and drive the rest of the way to Seattle. Once we drop off the truck at my mother-in-law’s apartment, I will get my stuff and take the bus the rest of the way home. I am really looking forward to getting home. I’m supposed to go to work on Tuesday, but I may take the day off to relax.

This has been an amazing trip so far, and I’m so glad I decided to do it.


San Diego Trip – Day 4

Today was another good, but long day. We left San Diego around 7 this morning and started the long drive home to Seattle. I’ve never driven this far before and wasn’t sure what to expect. As I mentioned in a previous post, we are driving a 16-foot Penske truck. It is very surprising how well it handles. It is very easy to drive.

With that said, the first couple hours were not fun. Between San Diego and Los Angeles the wind was very strong. Sometimes it felt like the truck wanted to fly away. Once I knew what to expect and how the truck handles, it wasn’t too bad.

We had to stop twice for gas and we stopped for lunch and couple times to take a break. We are now at our first stop in Sacramento. Tomorrow we will drive to Eugene, OR and then on to Seattle on Monday. It’s been a good trip, but I am ready to be home.
