I finally sat down and added the rest of my crib notes to the collection. |
As we ride I pull out pen and paper and write down thoughts and sites as they come.
This is what I didn't include in the last posting.
Update Notes from our trip
On Hill AFB they have speed dip signs on the side of the road. Instead of a speed bump they have a v shaped groove cut in the streets.
In Utah there was a roadside sign for a restaurant the said "Please Don't Lick the Billboard".
In Salt Lake City there was crosswalk in the middle of the block, there was a barrel on each side of the street that contained orange flags on poles. Whenever a person crossed the street they would take a flag with them and place it in the barrel on the other side of the street.
I hit a new high on gas mileage in my car's tank. We filled up our tank in Ozona, Texas. We had driven 541.9 miles since the last fill up.
As we were driving back to Texas with Devon in the back seat, he asked "which one of you weighs more?" In his Mom's car he sits on the side behind the lightest driver.
Devon discovered I had back seat drink holders. I had never ridden in my own back seat so I didn't know the holders are in the center section of the seat. You pull the section down and there they are.
We drove 5,190 miles on our trip.
The least expensive gas we found was $2.81.9
The highest price we found was $3.39.9.
While we were on our trip we saw kamakazi rabbits, the one that ran in front of us we somehow missed.
We also saw Elk in a field,
We saw ostriches' on a ranch in Arizona. The ranch was called "The Rooster Cogburn Ranch".
We saw a millipede crossing the sidewalk at Carlsbad Caverns.
We experienced temperatures ranging from the mid fifties to 115* and humidity from 90% to 4%.
We saw a sign in Wilcox Arizona that said "Baskin Robbins 31 miles to 31 flavors".
