California here we are! Right back where I started from. We arrived at Mom’s in Laguna Woods around 6 last night, only slightly behind schedule. We would have made it on time if a rear tire hadn’t blown in the middle of nowhere in New Mexico Thursday. Several hours and hundreds of dollars later … But really, it was a small mishap for a such a long, hard journey. We spent the night at Mom’s. I’ll try to write more later — though I don’t have Internet hooked up yet at our new apartment, to which we head shortly.
