30 days

When we wake up tomorrow we will have been on the road for 30 days. Tomorrow is our 1 month anniversary on the road full time.

The 1st 30 days we stayed in
Oceanside CA
Santa Clarita CA
Bakersfield CA
Sequoia National Park CA
Fresno CA
Yosemite National Park CA
Bridgeport CA
Carson City NV

It had it's ups & downs... emotionally & physically as we drove through the Sierra Nevada's.

Its been challenging, scary, exciting & so many more things.

As we embark on our 2nd month we will reassess which items to keep and what still needs to go. Which items have we used... and which items we have not...obviously we have to take into account which items we haven't used ( like clothes) that we didn't use because it wasn't cold enough to or the fact we have yet to encounter much rain.

It is slow going. I suppose somehow we would move faster. But its been a good pace. The fact we are unsupported stops us from going further faster. So we are being forced to reevaluate our route. At our current rate we will be lucky to reach the east coast in 8 months.

Sometimes its fun.
Other days are more difficult.

We try to keep the days we drive that the drive time is under 3 hours.

We have learned keeping a good mealtime  schedule is important...
we have learned we can dry dock if we conserve for about a week. ( Yosemite taught us that one)
We are stronger than we thought we were.

We have learned that we still have too much stuff.

We have learned that we still have a whole lot to learn
