After leaving Friday at 4:20 PM and traveling 2916.7 miles and spending a total of $448.09 on gas we finally arrived home around 1:15 PM.
We left San Diego yesterday morning right about 6:00 AM with plans to stay the night in El Paso, but since we arrived in El Paso around 5:30 PM we decided to keep on trekking and stay the night in Midland or Odessa.Â When we arrived in Midland we tried three different hotels and they were all booked, same story in Odessa.Â We were told that since gas prices are high that business is good and all the hotel rooms are booked by people in the oil industry.Â With that in mind we ran into the same situation in Big Spring, but the reason all the hotel rooms were booked was because of a refinery explosure and all the repair folk are taking up all the rooms.Â Finally we found an open hotel room at the Holiday Inn Express in Sweetwater a little after midnight and about 4 hours left to go on our trip home.Â I was actually really impressed with this hotel and would recommend it over the Monte Crappo in Las Vegas anytime.
WifeGeeding really misses Disneyland.
I do find it interesting how I see a commercial in DFW and automatically think it’s a local business, and then I see the same commercial in California.Â One such business is Empire Carpet.
It’s such a great feeling to come home and see our little fur-children.
