California Dreaming

So we have been in California almost a week now.  We did the 800 mile drive on Monday  There's a whole lot of desert out there and not much else.  I drove the first 600 miles or so and Kim took over for the last 3 hours of the trip and got us to her mom's house safely.   Here's the map.

Day miles - 809
Trip Miles - Right at 3,700

There was one exciting/scary moment on the trip.  As we were headed up Crane Canyon Road, a little over a mile from Kim's mom's house we saw a raccoon run across the road in front of us.  Although Kim was only doing 30 in a 35 mile zone, I mentioned that I thought it was a bit fast "for conditions" and maybe she should slow down.  She did, and as we came around the next corner there was a baby deer mesmerized in our headlights.  The poor thing was so scared it didn't move an inch.  Fortunately for us, we were moving slow enough that Kim was able to stop and we did not hit the deer.  Kim then hit the horn a couple times and the deer ran off.  I looked at the GPS and it showed exactly 1 mile to Mom's house!  So, to sum up, we drove 3,699 miles and then just missed an accident as we arrived in Santa Rosa.

I managed to get a round of golf in yesterday at Foxtail South right here in Rohnert Park.  We won't be leaving for Alaska until the end of the month so probably won't have a lot of posts between know and then.  If you haven't signed up to get updates via email you can do that through the sign up box on the right.
