Last Saturday I drove Megan and her friend Monica down to L.A. to spend a couple of weeks with Monica and her family. 700 mile round trip. We left here at 8:20 AM and I was back at home again a grueling 13 1/2 hours.

The phone rings on Friday and it’s Meg. “Dad, can you come get me this weekend? We’re bored.”

Saturday morning I get back in the truck. Drive past 1 overturned car, 1 burning Semi truck, multiple near misses on the LA freeways, 113 degree temperatures outside of Bakersfield, and 12 1/2 hours later I pull back into the driveway with a kid.

2 trips from Monterey to L.A. in a week.
