Long haul

Up at 5:30! We both must be excited to get going. Today is the long haul from Lompoc to Vegas, and should be fun. Feels like the first official travel day of the trip and looking forward to putting some miles under our belts.

Quick reintroduction into driving the trailer yesterday with no problems. A couple of quick notes: 101 is ridiculous and people drive like complete lunatics no matter what time of year day weather etc. Truck drivers (big rig) are competitive with the trailer as if they have to prove that indeed that is not true hauling. It's all about letting people go by and cruising/getting in the right mindset. It's not a race and I can't see behind the trailer so no worries. Other trailer people are quickly recognized as brethren on the road while motor homes are snubbed.

We're Married!!

Brent and I are getting ready to leave on our road trip adventure in the next few days. We still cannot believe what an amazing wedding it turned out to be, wind and all. Thank you everyone for coming all the way out to Lompoc, and for those of you that couldn't make it, we were thinking of you. Everyone was so generous and we wouldn't be on this honeymoon if it wasn't for all of you. Thank you everyone very much!!

All our love,
Brent & Alisha Carkeet
