Back On the Road

We picked up Peter from camp on Wednesday (8/5) afternoon and began our long drive to Wichita. We drove through Los Angeles traffic and made our way to Interstate 40. It was around 7:30pm so we stopped for dinner and fuel just outside of Barstow at a Love's travel center. The plan was to not make any long stops and just keep on moving. The drive took us through Flagstaff, Arizona just a few miles from the Grand Canyon and then through Albuquerque, New Mexico. It was early morning and we were in Amarillo, Texas and starving. We needed a break and stopped for breakfast at a nearby IHOP.

J took the wheel as Gene slept for the remainder of the drive. Our original plan was to go through Oklahoma City, but there was too much highway construction and we opted for an alternate route. Well, we finally arrived at our hotel in Wichita at 5:35 PM Central Time...26 hours later. Peter's game started at 7pm and we were tired, but still made our way there.

At the end of the day we were absolutely exhausted. We lost the first game, but there are more to come, time to get some rest.
