This is the car we’re driving to Atlanta. I hope it makes it!
From left-to-right: Daniel and Mace!
We were hoping to get started by 6am, but didn’t end up leaving until 10am. Our intention was to drive straight through to Great Falls, Montana, a distance of 655 miles, where we would be staying at the house of Terry and Susan.
As we set off, we got a phone call from Calle. Despite our late departure, we agreed to meet him in Issaquah:
We expected snow in the mountain passes, and that’s exactly what we got! These pictures are from Snoqualmie pass:
Once we got through the pass, the weather was bright and sunny. These pictures are from the Wild Horses monument just off the I-90 highway, one the ease side of the Columbia river.
And here are the wild horses:
More pictures of the Columbia river:
Evidence that we passed through Idaho:
And now we’re somewhere in Montana:
The roads in the Rocky Mountains were icy, and me being a cautious driver, took it very slowly, finally arriving at our destination in Great Falls at 11:30pm.
Here are some pictures from Great Falls taken the following day:

I've always wanted to have my own blog ... and this is it ... finally!!!
Hmmm ... Now what?
Hmmm ... Now what?
OK. So let me tell you what prompted me to finally get around to starting a blog. I'm going on a road trip from Seattle, WA to Atlanta, GA, where I will spend the next month, and I wanted somewhere to make a record of the trip. I'm travelling with a friend, Daniel, and we're driving our friend Jill's car, and her dog, Mace, to the place she's moving to.
I don't know how much I will have to say over the course of this trip. At the very least I hope there will be some pictures and some factual information. Beyond that, we'll just have to see how things unfold...
