Default Trip cross country ( 56K go take a nap )

So about 3 weeks ago I flew out to California to help my cousin Chris move back home to Ohio. I got to Oakland about 1pm local time and by 5pm we were on the road coming back home; we took rt 80 all the way to Ohio. Alot of my pictures are from inside the car since we only stoped for gas and sleep (very little sleep at that). & before anyone asks the car was a 2002 Kia Spectra with a 1.8l 4 .
We Left Oakland California about 5pm local on a Wed and were home in Ohio at 11:30pm Friday night

Here we go

Somewhere near the Eastern border of Cali

Passing a forest tourched by forest fires



Woke up the next morning in Utah

Not even a 1/4mile from the Motel 6 we stayed at.

Salt flats





My Cousin & me just west of Salt Lake city. Cousin: left Me (Ed): Right



Just east of Salt lake city.... Someone is going to be pissed.

Great scenery! Thanks for sharing! And that HOME!!! LMAO!!!

I can just see it now...an add for a manufactured home next week in the local paper:

"Just Reduced! (the price too)... Open Floor Plan (wide open)... Spacious and Airy (new vents in the walls) ... Great Fixer Upper (after you tip it upper)... Ready to Move To Your Lot (because we gotta get it off the highway). "

Glad everyone liked the pictures...

Yeah I had a blast driving all that distance, the sights were great. For the short amount of time I saw and learned quite abit. I even showed a native American man how to pump gas.... He looked to be in his 40'* and said he never did that before. I want to say that was in Wyoming but I'm not sure. ( he also said he was going to drive across the country.)

I'll have to make sure do a road trip years down the line with alittle larger window of time to work with.

& yeah it was weird it looked like the truck pulling the trailer was upright but the trailer wasn't. I guess it was the wind or something wasn't hooked up correctly at all.
