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.
