We left Sturgis, SD around noon on Wednesday. I followed my mom because:
1) She's a better navigator than I am (if there is a way to get lost, I'll find it).
2) I couldn't see the jeep very well behind the Uhaul.
3) We were so exhausted, I had to watch to make sure she didn't fall asleep at the wheel. Every time she started swerving, I knew she'd drifted off and I honked to wake her up.
One terrifying moment had her swerving into a lane already occupied by another car. If you were curious about why it took us four days to drive 20 hours, it's a pretty easy answer.
I wanted to get there alive.
I think we were still in South Dakota for this picture, but I could be wrong. I loved the beautiful yellow flowers.
The first day, we took two lane highways to get to Rawlins, Wyoming before getting a hotel. We were too exhausted to go on.
Next stop on Friday, Utah. The place where I thought Mom and I would be cannibalized by the Salt Flat People after getting lost. Sometimes having an active imagination is not a good thing.
