My mom could have absolutely done the Oregon trail thing. Seriously. She and I packed up my Saturn on January 4th and headed in a general North-Westernly direction with the purpose of dropping me off at my new life in Washington State.
Per the mental rules of my "2012 One picture Per Day" endeavor, I can't post more than...well....one picture per day. But that doesn't mean I can't showcase some of the extras here:
The car top carrier I bought began to fall apart after less than 2 hours on the road. Ergo- ratcheting straps. And lots of them.
Favorite States we crossed- Utah and Wyoming hands down. No offense Idaho, but your landscape along route 80 could do with a little sprucing.
Wyoming had such cheap gas! $2.65 was the lowest we saw.
