Merry Christmas

Why is it when you are getting on the road you can’t sleep the night before?  We both were wide awake at 3am, tossed and turned, finally got up at 3:30am.  Took our time closing down the house, checking for last minute forgotten items and loading all that last minute stuff into the rig.  We were rolling out of the driveway just before 6am.  Stopped in Big Timber at the Town Pump to give the hungry beast a drink of $3.78/gallon diesel fuel.  Saw a high school friend of Michael’s, Sox, who wished us safe travels.

The rest of the day we have spent driving and driving on dry roads, thank the good Lord!  Not one speck of ice or snow on the freeway, just alongside the road.  IMG_1499Forgive the bugs on the windshield!

We stopped in a rest area a little while ago and Michael got out the ball for Emmi—of course she was thrilled, I think she thought we had left the red ball back in Montana!IMG_1502

Our plan here at 3pm is to make it just south of Murdo, South Dakota which will mean driving for a little while in the dark which we don’t usually like to do.  But, the plan is to get to warmer country, the sooner, the better.

Merry Christmas to all our friends and family, here’s hoping you had a wonderful day.


  1. Yippee, you're on the road to sunshine and warmth. Please be safe especially after dark with all the animals running loose. Merry Christmas.

  2. Pretty darned nice feeling eh. Understand your wanting to get as far away from the cold weather as fast as possible. May the warming westerly tail winds carry you safely all the way to your destination. Can't remember which part of Florida you are headed for.

  3. safe travels to you both and Merry Christmas!!..probably a great gift for the two of you!!!..time away and fun in the sun!!!

  4. Have a Merry Christmas, and keep those wheels rolling! Stay safe, get warm, enjoy!

  5. This Gaelic blessing came to my mind as I read your post:

    May the road rise up to meet you.
    May the wind be always at your back.
    May the sun shine warm upon your face;
    the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
