Brrrr…… On our way home :)

I know why we left the frozen north – it is SO cold out there but before I tell you where we are let me update you on the last couple days. Thursday we came across the Mojave Desert in California so did get some of the strong winds. It was a long day, not due to the weather but because we had to get above Sacramento that night in order to be close to pick up on Friday morning. We have kept ourselves... read more

From there we walked about 2 miles! First we hit the Salvation Army Thrift store which was not very exciting, then we had to get some fuses from AutoZone for the Cooler. After that we found the Goodwill store (had looked up the... read more
