Dave and Jenn's Road Trip - Day 1

Today was the day we moved out of our apartment, packed everything we owned (except for stuff we shipped back to Maui) into the Prius, and hit the road. We thought we were going to leave around 9:30am but of course that didn't happen. First, Jenn made a short trip to the dentist, then we underestimated how long it'd take to clean the apartment, pack everything up, and load the car. We ended up leaving around 1:45pm.

We dropped some stuff at my brother's office, then started down to SoCal. We also stopped at our favorite rest stop before the Grapevine. Why is it our favorite? I have no idea!

A few hours later, we were at our first stop, Disneyland! By the time we got to the park, it was just enough time to eat a nice fried chicken dinner at Plaza Inn, while watching the fireworks show. Then off to Pirates of the Caribbean, Jungle Cruise, then Buzz Lightyear. Then back to the hotel to get a good night sleep after a long day one.

I love your posting about leaving early. We're the same way...well, when I say we, it's me. Plus, you got to see Disneyland in Laker's colors. That's awesome.
