(Kevin)  Sorry everyone, but I was elected to write today's blog.  First full day heading east.  Seems funny to have the sunrise in our faces and sunset at our backs.  We left Hawthorne, NV at 6:25 this morning with our target set for Idaho.  We had a 1:20 stopover at an auto parts store for a generator muffler repair.  Had to replace the muffler hanger - a couple drilled holes in the frame, mix and match some old parts and new, and on our way.  It was about 6 hours of driving to get through Nevada.  We found a campground in Twin Falls, ID.  Dinner, laundry, ice cream social, swimming, a little TV, then off to bed.  Heading for Yellowstone in the morning.

496.9 miles, avg. speed 62.1 mph, 7:59 moving time, 3:11 stopped time, 5,119 total miles for trip

Kevin,I know everyone is voting for Tom and Darren as best bloggers, but you at least have one vote from me. It must be real difficult to blog and drive around hairpin turns at the same time. Let Tom and Darren know that Youkilis is injured and may be out for the season. Jana, you can open your eyes now , the cliffs are past you, oh wait you better close them, the sun is going to be in your eyes.
Have fun heading east.

WOW! Seems like traveling across with Brian,Gregg &Kev but kinda` rough it - pitched 2 tents every night !! probably had to have a $10 bill ready ? !! Oh but those peanut butter sandwiches were delicious -Boys!! This trip started on Aug 8, 1980 when Brian was discharged in Las Vegas. Flying out to go on this tenting trip back home - a trip of many Dad & I have taken -we will never forget it. Dad loved tenting / traveling he was called the `Tour Guide` on all our trips-with the Kings, Grants & Kate and Rollie across to Az, many winters. Time goes so quick - happy to know your stopping at most of the areas we did - Tom & Darren same age as Uk Gregg and Kevin. WOW. I say have wheels will travel - on way to Hadleys Friday to Folsom reunion until Sunday. Chasie will be waiting for you in the yard with me on Sun.15th. Happy Trails to you all, safe traveling. Love
