We finally made it!! We left on Tuesday Sept 7th and got here on Friday Sept 10th.
It wasn't as bad a trip as I was worried about. Actually it was really nice! E and I took our time driving, stopped whenever we needed to. We saw some interesting things, and got to see the country! :) I'm really glad that I got to do this with E.
We started the trip with rain, and ended with rain! It rained almost the entire trip. Poor E was waiting all summer for rain, and it finally did the day we left! lol. But once we got to the Hoover Dam it stopped and was beautiful all the way till we got to OK. Sorry Sara, but OK was the worst part of the trip! As we were driving into OK from TX you could see a huge black cloud that didn't stop as far as you could see. One min it was sunny and literally as we drove into OK it started to rain! Then it poured down and as night time came it was foggy and really hard to see anything! That was scary for me, I hate driving in the fog, if it was just rain it would have been better, but we made it threw, and had to stop in Oklahoma City for the night because it was just to hard to drive in that! It was still raining in the morning, but not as bad, and rained the entire rest of the trip.
But the creepiest place to drive threw was definitely TX! All I could think of as we were driving threw was the Texas Chainsaw Massacre! I know that I shouldn't be scared of that, but it was a true story!!!
I kept thinking that we were going to get pulled over by some hillbilly cop who would kill us and eat us! It was very scary, there was nothing around for miles, and once in a while there was a old scary looking restaurant or house all by itself. Luckily we didn't have to stop in TX at all. We passed up this one little town, and I mean little! Like you could see it from beginning to end. There was one street, a few houses, a church, restaurant, motel, and gas station. There was no way I could imagine anyone actually wanting to stay there! They probably served people burgers at the restaurant! And as we were driving by there was a junk yard on the side of the freeway, full of all types of cars. There was a huge barn and a big building that I think might have been a silo or something like that, but it was old and had some windows broken out of the barn, and next to all the broken cars, there were semi trucks all beat up and broken. Now that didn't freak me out till I saw what looked like a new Fed Ex truck broken down in the junk yard. It was still white, but the back was all beat up. That is when my imagination just took off. I decided that the people in this town prey on people who's vehicles break down or maby go to the restaurant, and take them to the barn and that is where they kill em and eat em! AHHH!! IT was super scary driving threw that area. I was so glad when we finally made it to a city! lol.
We also saw alot of beautiful scenery. At one point as we were driving into a storm there was a HUGE rainbow that you could see from start to finish. It was the most brilliant beautiful rainbow I have ever seen in my life. You could make out every single color, like someone took markers and just drew them into the sky. It was hard to take your eyes off of it. E got a pic as he was driving, but it just didn't do it justice. And as I was looking at it, it turned out there was a double rainbow, the second one was fainter but still that was the most beautiful thing I've seen.
I'm really happy that we made the trip and got to see so much of God's beautiful country that He gave us. It really was an amazing trip. Once we saw the sign for Indiana, it was like YESSS!!! We made it! It still feels like we are on vacation though.
Oh, and thank you Prayer Buddy for all your prayers, E got a call while we were on the road for a job! He did the phone interview on Friday and has the in person interview on Wednesday! Were keeping our fingers crossed! :)
