We had plans to leave yesterday at noon.
We left at 4:30.
We arrived in Las Vegas at 11:30.
By the time we figured out where we were going, unloaded our car - found our room - got the kids dressed in their pajamas and put to bed it was 12:45. We are now getting the kids bathed, dressed, fed and then we're jetting off to somewhere in Utah.
Once I have some time, I will update more.
So far, we're having a great time. Even though 2/6 of our platoon are sick, we have no maps for the United States and no idea where we'll spend the night tonight ... or tomorrow night ... or the night after that or that ... we are feeling extremely adventurous and extremely thankful for cell phones and the GPS in our car.
