Western Adventure: Day 10

Woke up and headed to Oakland today. Drove for the first time and in while, felt weird. It’s definitely a lot different driving out here. Everything in Orlando is flat so having to drive through the mountains caught me off guard at first. But once we got moving it was smooth sailing until we got close to Oakland and hit a little traffic. But it wasn’t that bad compared to what I witnessed in LA. Scenery wise, nothing but the desert, wind turbines and mountains. Nothing special. 

Finally caught up on my post. Spent the 2nd half of my ride writing and uploading pics. Mostly the latter. It’s amazing what you can do with just a phone these days. 

Once we got settled in it was kinda late, so I just went out and walked around Oakland for a little bit. I was also able to reconnect with an old buddy who showed me a few places and took me this amazing food truck who had the best tacos. Before I head back, I wanna stop by there and grab more.

Western Adventure: Day 9

Today was very similar to yesterday. Slept in and finished up my laundry in the morning. Then I eventually got up and visited a friend from college. I’ve seen her twice this year which is cool. Always good to see old friends. She actually has started a family now and has two amazing little kids. 

It wasn’t until late in the day that I read another blog on WP and saw one else’s post from the Vegas strip. Then I suddenly had wished that I maximized my time in Vegas seeing sites and enjoying it more. Granted I needed the sleep and had to catch up some laundry, there was still time in the day to go out and get a decent amount of sleep. 

Heading to Oakland/San Francisco in the morning and vowing to make the most of my time there. Any suggestions on this to do while I’m there? Anybody in the area?

I think that catches me up. Should have some nice photos from San Francisco in the morning to post.

Western Adventure: Day 8

Woke up early and packed up our camping gear one final time. Leaving Bryce Canyon and today we have to travel again. This time to Henderson, NV to regroup and visit my aunts friend. Staying here for 2 nights so we’ll be able to do laundry, sleep in beds and take real showers. The little things in life. Drive was about 5 hrs not including stops at Dunkin Donuts and In-N-Out Burger. 



Took 2 uneventful pictures all day. One of arriving back in Arizona and another of the tempature here. Yes, it’s that hot here. Definitely stayed in once we arrived. And laid in bed all day and night. Had a lot of posts to update and pictures to upload.
