Awesome Road Trip - Utah Style

Well, I actually don't know what "Utah" style is, but it was a road trip TO Utah.

Of course, it wouldn't be a Carol adventure unless there was some type of mishap. And, it was only a few hours into the trip.......


LOTS of snow......

The online weather DID NOT forecast snow.

We needed chains.

We didn't have chains.

We bought chains. But.....

we had Sam put the chains on the car.

Conversation in the car on Donner Summit:
Me: "It is VERY lonely out here. Now you can see why those people in the Donner party died and the survivors had to eat each other."
The Man: "Where was CHP?"

Oh My! (Of course if you don't know about the Donner party or CHP it won't be funny. For those who do, enjoy the laugh. I sure did!)

Forty miles later.....We took the chains off. (Sorry no pictures of that. It was just plain TOO COLD to be taking pictures OUTSIDE of the car.)

We arrived in Reno....late....much later than expected due to the whole snow-thing.

Stayed the night there at Circus, Circus and we were on the road again EARLY the next morning. (This is us LEAVING town, rather than coming into town.)

And, we're off.......

Rollin', rollin', rollin'

What the $*(%?

Did we make a wrong turn?

This "Beverly Hills" must be REALLY exclusive because NOBODY lives here.

Rollin', rollin', rollin'

Rollin', rollin, rollin'

WOW! That is one LONG road with absolutely nothing on it. Dang good thing we had snacks!

Honestly, we did stop at a truck stop to get some gas and play a slot machine.

Several thousand miles later....actually it's only about 850 miles I believe....We arrived in Ogden.

My poor car.....just look at it.

One of the first things we did was wash that puppy to get rid of all the salt and muck and get her sparklin' again.

to be continued...........(Why? Because the State of California says that in order to keep a teaching credential all teacher's must take 4 MORE college courses before a certain I have to do HOMEWORK on Spring Break....Imagine that?)
