You guys are making really good time.

You've got roughly 1150 miles to go (out of 2735) to Pasadena.

I tried to warn you!!! HWY 80 is b.o.r.i.n.g. You should definitely take the high or low route on your way home instead of 80 again.

When you take pictures you need to have your car in everyone of them like the gnome commercials on tv when it shows him in all of the pics of the places hes been. That would be cool. I like the bimmer towing the boat, thats classic definitely a Kodak moment. What part of Colorado did you go through? Text me when you hit Utah.

I'm in the lowlands of Colorado and it is a huge late snowstorm so usually you take what is happening here and multiply by ten
