Los Altos, California

Erin’s as big as a house and getting bigger. Travelling in this condition means stopping every 60 to 90 minutes so she can get out, walk around, and maintain the circulation. What that means is a trip that takes 11.5 hours normally took 14.5 today. We hit a lot of snow in the Shasta area, but otherwise the difficulties where nothing more than the tedium of driving through some particularly boring stretches of I-5. Thank God for good company.
