Another 3,700 miles from New York to California


Well, I was in Japan for 3 months (Mr.R was there for 2 months) and came back to New York at the end of November. We then resumed our cross country trip, This time from New York to California, to head south and then west on I-40 (runs parallel to Route 66). We left NY on 12/3 drove through 11 states and arrived CA on 12/16 with travel distance of 3,700 miles. We lost 6 days in North Carolina as our truck needed service. So practically we did this trip in 7 days!



Somewhere in Arizona

There are so many places we wanted to visit but our first priority was to spend our Christmas in California so we rushed home! We drove around 500 miles each day fueled by diesel and lots of caffeine, Ghirardelli chocolate and unique local food. And a big thanks to Walmart! We stayed 4 nights in their parking lots.
