Driving Miss Donna - what does this mean? Whenever I want to go somewhere, if Don is home he will usually drive. He always says he is driving miss Donna! This blog is for our travels, usually with our truck and fifth wheel trailer, but sometimes in our Journey. Don retired October 2011 so hopefully the travelling part will increase! When we are not vacationing check in for updates about our life at home and our wonderful family:)

And the adventure begins...

Saturday morning saw us up and at it early.  We were on the road by 6:00 am, hoping that all reports were correct and there would be no snow to slow us down.  Everything went our way and we pulled into Idaho Falls about 8:30 pm.  Walmart had a site with our name on it, and although we expected to stay in a hotel the first night, it was not necessary, as the trailer was a balmy 10 degrees before the furnace even went on.  Cheap I am - no way 8 hours of sleep is worth $150 when you can have your own bed.  Walmart allowed an opportunity to stretch our legs, then we climbed into bed with our E readers.

Sunday was another fantastic day for driving, with the skies so blue and sunshine all around.  Although in the Salt Lake City area it was evident that snow had fallen the day before, the highways were dry and clear. 

We arrived at our first destination, St. George Utah, at about 4:30 pm.  First stops after plugging in were Costco and Walmart for groceries.  We visited the Golden Corral for their buffet, and headed home to call it an early night.

Today we explored a few areas, and found a great little hike in Johnsn Canyon.  It was short and T Shirt weather, much to our enjoyment!

We visited the local AT&T store where Don loaded up data on his internet stick and I made the big purchase of a US smartphone and data package.  Smiles all around!

The sunshine on our faces makes it a little easier to be away form home, and this is just the beginning.

Tomorrow we are headed to Stewart's Point in the Lake Mead area.  Until posting and photo time again, take care!
