Trip Recap

Our road trip out to San Clemente, California was blissfully uneventful. No broken down car, no flat tires. Everything went smoothly.

The kids were kept entertained with an assortment of handheld video games, DVDs, coloring books, reading Prince Caspian stories with The Boss Lady and being entertained by The Babysitter, their 22 year old second cousin wo came along for the ride (and a trip to Disneyland).

We traveled 1400 miles, door to door. 75% of that time was spent on Interstate 10. The best part of the drive though, was Interstate 8, through the Imperial Valley. The mountains and boulders were awesome.

Today is the day we set aside for "Un-Planned Spontenaity" - Thanks to Chels for that quip.. We do not have any real plans, other than playing at the beach, hitting some Cail geocaches and maybe a side trip to the Surfing Heratige Foundation. Texas boy need to get his surf on sometimes, you know?

Chels got it wrong. It's officially recorded as "Planned Spontenaity" time on the excel sheets we are handed upon departure. Did you get a spreadsheet too?

We are living on the edge and travelling sans spreadsheet.

Scary, right?

And without room reservations, too! "The Babysitter" knows how to make an excel sheet-just maybe not as detailed as Flora's. You'd better watch out, Mike!
