One more day before I begin my solo road trip across the Western United States! Somehow I’ve whittled the packing down to a trunk-size wardrobe that will carry me through coastal, desert and mountain climates.
- 60 driving hours (without traffic, and not counting side trips such as national parks)
- 4,000+ miles
- 10+ cities through 7 states
- countless small towns, national parks and side treks
- several headaches
Just a few more errands to run before I go, including visiting a chiropractor who warned me during my last appointment that I should drive on cruise control whenever possible to “save my hip.” Because I’m 80.
