From Tejas to CA...day by day...

I finally got all my pictures downloaded from our trip heading WEST from Texas...I will not overload you with ALL the pictures in one day...but thought I would start at the beginning...leaving Texas.

Leaving the homestead...driving away for the last time....



( I borrowed these great photos from my sweet daughter...she just takes WAY better pictures than I do...THANKS, Jackie)







Wind turbines scattered all across the plains of West Texas...see and folks just thought we only had oil/gas...Texans are so self-sufficient when it comes to resources...it's crazy! I mean seriously EVERYTHING you could ever want or need is there...somewhere...


Sweet little "Cookie" with her head perched up near the console...this is where she rested most of the time...she managed to catch up on any sleep she has EVER missed out on...and snored like a freight train...funny stuff...that one!!



Yea, always keeping a watchful eye on lovin' hubbins' speed...didn't want to get a ticket ANYWHERE...but especially if we were still in Texas...wouldn't want that to be a lasting memory. Good thing he was driving and always kept it on cruise at about 5 miles over the limit...cos IF I were driving...we would still be on the road...only b/c I obey the exact speed limit laws...AND I brake for Estate Sales, Antique Stores, and outlet malls!!



Maggie in her "cool" digs riding in the truck...we had the whole back seat laid down..a giant piece of cardboard over the seats (you know so there little paws and hineys wouldn't slip through to the floor, that was covered with big rugs, a sheet and the dogs comfy beds) YES, they were riding very comfortably! Nothing too good for my babies!!



THE girls...again, traveling like little champs...ya, know it dawned on me after the first day...that NOT once...NEVER EVER did these 2 complain, ask if we were there YET? or argue over who sits where...amazing, must have been the doggy Prozac we gave them...wonder where that stuff was when we traveled with kids??? LOL

WHEW!! the never ending road...This concludes the start of our journey...I didn't want to bore you with tons of pictures of roadside parks, flat lands and tumbleweeds...my next post will offer more about the Grand Canyon, VEGAS...baby... Yosemite...and then finally our new home in Sacramento...till then..."Happy Trails"!

Loved seeing the photos! Your sweet fur babies looked adorable and sweet and not one bit concerned about where they were going. Can't wait to follow along as you share more photos of your adventure.

Hugs!

This brought back so many memories of cross country (and ocean) moves...you handled it like the champ you are...I can't imagine traveling 80 and not trying to give myself a ticket!!! Can't wait for more!
