September 3rd - Tuesday

Panel Oh God, I don't want to drive home! The last week has finally caught up with me, and I feel like shit. Throbbing head, queasy stomach.

At least this easier than neatly packing everything to get on a plane. Just throw the stuff in the van (this time I got to buy everything I wanted in the dealer's room and not worry about space!) and we're off by 10:30.

With JD playing navigator again, we head South and then East through Gilroy-the-Capitol-of-Garlic. The place *reeks* of garlic. For miles. And miles. JD is screaming in joyful ecstasy ("Food! Pizza! Food!") -- and I'm holding my breath, silently telling my stomach to stay down. We finally hit the rolling hills and then on to Highway 5 South, for a straight shot down the center of California. JD got to see lots and lots of 'fruiting grain' on this road -- nothing but dry brown fields with an occasional billboard.

Lunch was about a quarter of the way down the state - JD was introduced to the wonders of In 'n Out Burger and 112 degree heat at the intersection of the 5 and the 41. Really, it wasn't that bad :-) Panel

Had to turn off the air conditioner to drive up over the Grapevine - a precaution, since I really didn't want the van to heat up. Past the Magic Mountain roller coasters, with JD snapping 20 pictures at 70 miles per hour. Even with hitting the after work traffic heading East going through LA, we still made it home before dark. DC meowed at me for the next 2 hours, telling me all about her week with strangers coming to visit her. Did laundry so I could repack in the morning. Sent email to both Darkomik and PMSallume to remind them we'd be at the hotel Wednesday night. And then to sleep in my own bed.

Panel Here's JD packing his dirty clothes in with his wine so we can mail it the next morning before we leave on our next adventure.
