Another 193 miles/310 kms put behind me today. Felt like a long and tiring driving day but the light is at the end of the tunnel. Today was the first day I thought “OK, I’m over this now !!”
My EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT and I had a long chat last night about my route over the next few days and where I wanted to arrive first. I was betwiked and between Quartzsite and Lake Havasu City. She was soooo insistent on knowing which one so she could plan my route for me. picky picky picky !! But I gotta tell ya Folks, she’s better than any GPS ! LOL ***psssssttt, Don’t tell her I said that ‘cause I’m always giving her a hard time.
We eventually agreed upon Quartzsite and she adjusted my FANCY MAP and then she e-mailed me my ‘instructions’ for the next day:
SUBJECT: Plan for Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday
Sunday – Lodi, CA to Tulare, CA – 183 miles
Monday – Tulare, CA to Santa Clarita, CA – 145 miles
Tuesday – Santa Clarita, CA to Palm Desert, CA – 149 miles
Wednesday – Palm Desert, CA to Quartzsite, AZ – 130 miles
And I am NOT to deviate from this plan. And I am NOT to decide to travel further ‘cause I felt it was too early to pull in. So BOSSY this one is !!
Actually it will be nice to have a few short driving days. I’m in desperate need of a hair cut and Bennie is in desperate need of a grooming so maybe I’ll get a chance to get these things done.
I made my first stop at a Harley Davidson today. I’ve been SOOOO good up to this point on this trip. You have no idea how many dealerships I’ve passed without stopping. I’m telling ya – COLD is a really good motivator !!
Just picked up a few trinkets. A new mouse pad – well, yes I already do have a HD mouse pad but it’s filthy and I can’t get it clean anymore…
A pair of flannel track pants. Truth is that you’d get these at Piper’s for about $5.00 but because they have the “Harley Davidson” name on them you pay an outrageous amount. And yes, FOOLS like me buy them…
And another sticker for the ‘garage’. I know, I know Sandie – I already have too many !! hehehehe
And that was my day Folks. I am so looking forward to pulling out my lawn chair and watching the sunset. And also having that extra hour of daylight.
