9 States in One Day
December 30, 2007
This year for Christmas travel I drove from San Francisco to Kansas City. This is something that only one with lots of time and not a lot of money does. I'm not adversed to buying a plane ticket, but at $1200 per person plus the dog, forget it. Thus, we loaded up the card with Christmas packages (including a giant iMac box) and headed out.

Not too many people can claim to have traveled through 9 states in one day:

Kansas
Missouri
Iowa
Nebraska
Colorado (oops, but we didn't go too far afield)
Wyoming
Utah
Nevada
California.

In addition, in our travels we visited 5 State capitols:

Sacramento
Salt Lake City
Cheyenne
Topeka
Lincoln

The weather was fine most of the way, except for some high winds in Wyoming, which based on my experience seems to be most of the time. Anyway, had a great visit and will be posting the Christmas pictures shortly.
