Cross Country Road Trip - Part 2

The truck started getting worse as we made our way through Texas and we decided we needed to stop to get it checked out. Normally my husband would have fixed it but he didn't have the right tools. We found an open garage and the tech "found the problem". Once it was fixed we continued our journey. Of course, it continued to give us problems but we just kept going, hoping it wouldn't explode. Right as we left Texas and entered New Mexico our air conditioning officially died. It was hot and the road was long. There was nothing for miles.

                                                                                                                                                                                                        Next up was Arizona. We did tons of sightseeing including checking off some bucket list items.
First on the bucket list was the four corners where we were in four states at once - New Mexico, Arizona, Utah and Colorado.

                                                                                                                                                           Second on the bucket list was the Grand Canyon. We hiked a bit and stretched our legs enjoying the mountain air.

As we left Arizona and headed into Nevada, we could see a storm on the horizon. It was still super hot, so we decided to stop for some dinner and cold ice cream.

As we passed Las Vegas, a rainbow appeared in the distance. Behind us the sun was setting and a beautiful sun set appeared. When it was dark we made it to the storm and the lightning was crazy.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     We made it California. We wanted to stop at Yosemite but with the truck problems, we decided to head straight to Oregon.

We officially made it to Oregon and decided to stop in Coos Bay for a break before heading to Astoria. When we finally made it to Astoria, we were so excited to see our new home and the sunset that greeted us!

We were excited to start our new life and see what was in store. We successfully made a the trip across the country and our marriage is stronger for it. Have you ever taken a road trip?
