so mitch & i left utah around 10am or something . and about 1 hour into our trip his CD player broke. HAHAHA. 10 hour drive with nothing but shitty radio & AM updates on the blizzard & road conditions. basically it showed us that we can entertain ourselves & each other pretty well for 10 hours. plus it took us longer since we had to drive thru TWO blizzards!
i will admit that a couple of times i felt like screaming because mitch took it upon himself to be the vocal entertainment on the drive since the CD player was caput... not saying his singing is bad.. but his choice of songs were just .. oh my god. haha. we played 20 questions. and ate bad food. and hit the back of a car because the road was icey ... best part was the guy didnt care at all and there was zero damage. we win! and we didnt get pulled over at all ! (thanks to my handy dandy radar detector) and we made it thru both blizzards easy peasy.
this is the passenger side of the car after both blizzards -
the front of the car is to the right. serious!
so much ice was hanging off the car we had to kick off.
and we arrived safely in freezing cold Reno for the night and made ourselves cozy at the Hyatt Place ... easily my favorite hotel i've ever stayed in and i HIGHLY recommend it to everyone. plus it smells so delicious i wish my perfume smelled like the Hyatt . you think i'm kidding but i'm not.
so anyways we will be in california today by 10 or 11 . and then the real fun shall begin. im happy mitch came with me on this trip. and i cant wait to blog about this fun little family adventure when it's all over. but i also cant wait to get back to utah.
