I had driven for almost 20 hours when I finally decided to give up and ask Amber to take over. We saw a sign in Wyoming for the last rest stop for 43 miles so we pulled off at the exit. We drove 12 miles without seeing any signs of life - no buildings, signs, etc. - it was sooooo creepy! We turned around and raced back to I-80. When we finally stopped again this morning, this is what the front of the car looked like - eew bugs!!! We arrived in Salt Lake City about 8:30 (at a friend's hotel to sleep for a couple of hours until our hotel was ready to check in). It was a long, but fun trip. BTW - I did take the car to the carwash and scrub the bugs off.
Check back later for more on our great adventure!
