Well, I guess I will NOT fool my boss.

I was whipped and josted all nite long, and swore at one point that the egg was airborn, even if by only an inch.

This morning was no different, and included a downpour.

I unhitched and restablized. Then took the car out onto the hiway to see what the situation was. There was posted restrictions for campers and high profile vehicles. The wind generators were locked down (Something they do when the wind is TOO high) and there were big rigs, 5ers and toy haulers lining the side streets of Tehachapi. The other rv park here was full. I was also getting blown around with no trailer. I could just imagine what towing would be like.

I returned here, paid for another day of space and internet and within the past hour, the sun has come out and the wind has gone away.

I am "Tempted" to tug out now, but I do not want to drive across Mojave in the dark. Break down out there.. and you are stuck.

I want to go home.. I am so close! Only about 3 hours.

HI! Gina,
I am glad that you and the pups are all right,and you are doing the right thing by staying one more night.
I just checked the weather underground site and it looks like tomorrow will be a better day to go home. Jay

Gina,
Don't know where you are, but it's here, with a few wispy clouds. Down to 29F last night, and 34F now. Finally some snow on the mountains, but maybe not a welcome sight for you!
Have you managed to get to work, or are you taking a day to acclimatize?
Methinks your method of "bringing in the New Year" is a little severe, but to each his own
Kurt & Ann K.

Well Kurt, I have finally arrived at my starting point. And I see what ya mean! the 18 has misc rocks on it, but nothing horrible and was easy to get up.

Left Tehachapi at 11, was unhitched and cleaned out of stinky stiff and perishables by 2. Sunny and quiet all the way. Tho, Mojave is not the most exciting for scenery, I enjoy that route (58 to 395 and then the 15 into home)

I will go back to that park when the weather is better It was very pretty but below freezing this am.

The entire trip was 2545 miles.

Nothing horrible happened at home, not a leak, spoiled bit of food or other things. The only suprise was a dead DSL modem, but that was easily replaced, and I am back to an evening at home before I go to work.

The pups are thrilled and greeted thier doggy friends next door merrily. They are still out there telling them all about it.

Mr. Squirrel and Mr. Monkey are still in the car, they are going to get a good bath when I do the laundry tomorrow nite

Next weekend is a thorough scrubbing of the egg and an assesment of water damage. Hopefully I will get away with a simple cleaning, but that will be left to be seen. The cushions are propped up to get the damp edges exposed to air, the covers are pulled and the cubbies opened to allow circulation.

Oh, and I am now using my dish. The permanent one

Per Norm's map, it looks like you were there indeed. Even though it sounded like sometimes you were in danger of being elsewhere. No slipping or sliding, or blowing or washing away.
Welcome home, safe and sound!
Kurt & Ann K.
P.S., we also are wondering about Lizbeth. Hope she was somewhat more fortunate dealing with the weather.

Gina, how are you getting your internet access while on the road? You seem to have had it working well where ever you went, despite the weather

Most all the places I went had Wifi, or in one case, I hijacked someones bandwidth. If no wifi, I used a Blackberry.
