Turn around
Ok, you must be half way by now, as you can't go much further West than the Pacific Ocean! Face the fact Justin, you must turn around now and make a L at the light.. Great photos thanks.

Your blog is interesting to follow each day. We feel like we're 'sorta' following you in your travels...I copied your blog of July 4 and took it to Genesis this a.m. Everyone was interested in all your comments, Justin. I gave it to Nanny after everyone read it and she thumbtacked it to the bulletin board. They're talking about changing the time to 10 a.m. plus a picnic some time soon to be held where Mary Frances lives... Continue the safe driving, Will. When are you comiung home??? Will miss your blog when you get back. Evelyn
