On the Way to the Wedding Roadtrip: Reports from Jim — Day 9, Ayers Natural Bridge

Send to Kindle

Our road trip across the country on the way to our daughter’s wedding has begun!

All the President’s Faces…Well, Four of Them, At Least

Day 8 – July 22, 2012

On the way to Rushmore!  Today we would complete a childhood dream. But first many, many hours of driving.  Glancing at Mavis (the gps) I saw a rt that would take us off the interstate (perpendicular to the interstate, then parallel) then rejoin. A horrible thing about the gps is that it has no scale.  The perpendicular part was about 12 miles but the parallel part a lot longer.  The road was being worked on and was closed to us for about 15 minutes as a grader or something came the other way.  The nice flag man came to each car, explained what was happening and had us read a laminated card that rocks, etc could damage our car or break a window and it was just too bad for us if it did.… Read the rest
