This is my test video for day 1 of Harry and my Pacific Northwest Vacation / Road Trip. I hope to do one of these every night after our days adventures
Got up today around 7pm.. started packing up the truck. Everything went smoothly, but we still were running about 1/2 hours behind. We left around 8.30, made a quick stop a Pepper Tree Gas to fill the truck up and then followed Sierra Highway and got onto the I-5 at Valencia.
We took the I-5 north, through the absolutely flat and boring CA Central Valley. Only saw a few olive tress farms and lots of grape vineyards. The only positive side is that the I-5 is the shortest way to get up north and since it's completely flat you use less gas and time.
Around 12.30 we stopped for lunch at Del Taco in Santa Nella. Once we were done with lunch we decided to fill the truck up again and then continued on the I-5 North. We went through Stockton and Sacramento, but didn't stop anywhere along the way, since we had done a CA-Vacation in 2005 and we wanted to get as far north as we possibly could.
After driving for over 400 miles Harry decided that it was time to let me do a little of the driving. So I took over and drove the remaining 250+ miles. Around 8.30 pm we reached our Hotel in Mt. Shasta in Northern California.
All in all it was a very good first day of our road trip. But we are both happy that we made it to the hotel and can relax. On this road trip we brought Daisy along. At times she wasn't quite too sure what to make of all the commotion, but for most part she was doing just fine. And Daisy absolutely loves to go on trips in the car.
Tomorrow we drive up to Hood River in Oregon...
