Default On the road - finally...

Signed all the papers this morning to complete the sale of our house and immediately set off on the long drive from Boise, ID to The Villages.
Nothing but snow all the way to Utah. Hope for better road conditions tomorrow. Looking forward to finding our new home in Florida and making new friends.

Drive carefully and enjoy the views. Your timing is perfect as the weather is perfect here.

We left Norcal a month ago and headed straight south and got on I-10 near San Bernardino. No weather to speak of on the whole trip. I was surprised that the highest elevation we went over was in Texas! 4,900 Ft about fifty miles East of El Paso. There was a Border Patrol stop there with drug sniffing dogs and we were asked if we were US citizens (in Texas no less).
