Back in the LA area. My 9000 mile winter round roadtrip of the USA is competed. My GMC P/U made it with flying colors, if a little worse for wear on the paint lob! Great trip. I will post some of the fire gear/apparatus photos I took.
Taking a 24+ state roadtrip in the WINTER! LA to Seattle, Seattle to New Hampshire to Virginia to Texas and back to California. Close to 7000 miles in all. Crazy? Yep! Doin' it anyway! Dropping resumes along the road. Cell phones and wifi spots will keep the job search going while we are on the road!
We have made it to Seattle with a stop over in Redding CA. Seeing some sites with friends and then heading for the midwest Saturday. Saw a firefighting plane in on the line in Weed, Oregon and freezing rain along Interstate 5. See my photo page.
