We're on our way! Day one

We left at 7:00 a.m. which is our about our usual start time when we have several hours to travel.  We're both morning people, so once we're up we just go ahead and do the required work and hit the road.  We usually have a target in mind, and we usually come pretty close.

We divided the trip from San Diego to Yellowstone  into 4 relatively leisurely drives.  Today ended up being six hours to the first stop in Las Vegas.  Our driveway in Lemon Grove, ready to go!

Somewhere near Temecula we saw three hot air balloons.  It was rather grey without a whisper of wind so they kind of went straight up and then down.  I've never been brave enough to fly in one so I don't know if that would be disappointing or not.  I prefer to appreciate their charms from the ground.

The ride was traffic free with the exception of one small backup after the 215 and 15 merged.  It's hot here, hovering between 95 and 99 all afternoon.  This made a dip in the pool quite refreshing.  We followed that with dinner out and then some downtime.  We want to arrive at the next destination, Holden Utah, pre lunch so we'll likely be taking off between 7:00 and 7:30 again for what looks like a 4 1/2 to 5 hour drive.

Poor Miss Maya has a new training regime.  She prefers to be cuddled next to me as close as possible.  Which means every time I want to get up I have to she now has a bed on the floor, within two feet of me and I'm training her to use that instead of the couch.  She does get to sleep in our bed at night so she's not terribly mis treated.  Also since we are likely to encounter some rainy days in our travels, we'll keep the couches cleaner if she's not allowed up.  

We've found the majority of RV parks have dismal to non existent wifi and this one despite their pamphlet to the contrary is no exception.  We have a mifi so we can use that, but being data constrained is very limiting!
