I had precious cargo.
Tori kept saying that I was "in the zone" as I was driving and I was! I had to be, because like I said, I had precious cargo. My entire family (including the Guncles) was on this huge RV that I've never driven in my life, and although I got the hang of it pretty quick and was having fun, I still wanted to be as safe as I could! I'm just glad we got to Patsy's with no one left behind in New Mexico. Of course I was excited to go and see Patsy! But did I make it an excuse for a cool road trip too? Yes. I think everyone was on board to have a little fun on the way, and we made the best of it. My favorite part on the way there would have to be the 72-oz steak challenge at the Big Texan. I bet some of you didn't think I could eat that much. Hey, I didn't even think I could eat that much. It gives a whole new meaning to "biting off more than you can chew." I was glad I didn't finish though; I think my stomach might have exploded. Seeing Tori's cousin Sam was great. Mr. Spelling was such a legend, and seeing where he came from and his humble beginnings, it was really inspiring to see how much he accomplished. I was sincerely glad we made this stop, I could tell it really meant a lot to T. Thanks to Tori and the Guncles, I didn't have to worry about the kids much, but I did miss them when I was driving for long stretches of time. We tried to make up for it when we stopped, though. We'd get ice cream or meals together and have fun talking and laughing. But of course, it was right back onto the RV. I was glad we got there when we did. I don't think I could have driven for another day!
