travel notes

  • We play a game while traveling called "Twinkie". Whoever spots a yellow car calls out "twinkie!' to claim it and the one with the most twinkies at the end of the day wins. Whenever I saw an unusual vehicle I'd call out, "There's a '47 Nash, you don't see them every day. That was worth at least 53 extra points!" So I would always win. I was never challenged. Of course, it could be that no one was paying attention. It's hard to say.
  • Another game that adults could play is to count how many times the kids ask, "Are we there yet?"
  • When we drove to Laughlin, NV, it wasn't to gamble at their many casinos. No, it was for something far more financially devastating. Dorothy and Kelly wanted to shop at the outlet mall.
