Here I thought I had it in the bag with 1680 miles. At least we'll have some left coasters this year.

BTW, I grew up in Winters, about 11 miles from "cow town" Vacaville.

Officially on the road. Staying the night in Dixon, CA and picking up the camper for the long drive in the morning. See you all on Thursday!

The camper is a 1987 Jayco pop-up. Getting dropped off at my mom and dad's in Ohio on the way to Fest. Gonna catch a night of sleep there after driving straight through starting tomorrow. We like it.

We've driven straight through from Vacaville, CA in the last almost 48 hours. Currently sitting in Joliet, IL waiting on the iPass people to pick up the phone so we can register our transponder.

I'm so tired I might be hallucinating. Not sure. Have slept on and off in the back of the wagon, as has Matt. :what::screwy:

We'll be there later this afternoon. I do believe both Matt and I will be glad to end this part of our epic road trip.
