Route 66: Day One (1-of-20)

I woke up this morning at 4:15 a.m. and was ready to start the day. I knew I’d need my rest, though, and tried to get back to sleep. By 6:00 a.m. I was still awake, so I got up, showered, ate breakfast, and finished packing.

When Jim started helping me pack the car, the dogs went nuts! They must have thought they were coming with me.

I got on the road at 9:30 a.m. My first stop was the Verizon store, because I couldn’t find my phone’s car charger. The charger they gave me was wrong for my phone, and I’m glad I tried it out in the parking lot. I think my charger is in Jim’s car and since he doesn’t have one for his phone, we each have one now.

Today was a short day of driving but tomorrow I should be on Route 66!
