We are alive and well! We are sitting in a campground outside Bodega Bay CA. Sorry we did not get out blogs going. But we are having too much fun and seeing too much beauty, please keep tuned and we’ll catch up.

We left Pittsburgh on September 26, 2006 and traveled West on Route #80 averaging 500+ miles per day. Our First night was in Illinois, at Illini State Park, we even had time to take a walk along the Illinois River before it got too dark, the state park was great with a full hook-ups. Day two was to Grand Island, Nebraska. We stayed at a KOA in a cornfield, again we had time for a walk, a half hour out and, of course, a half hour back. During the day we try to move about the Bothan, we have weights, and bands and try to stretch a bit, then there is internet connection, usually. So when not driving we try to do other things. Night three we spent in Utah and took a walk around the desert town. Night four was in Battle Mountain, Nevada; there is nothing in Nevada. The desert is harsh; maybe that is why they build up the casino industry.
