We made it to Flagstaff, Arizona. That was the goal for today.

Addendum: (this is more for my memory) The fog in Central California when we left Fresno was unbelievable. At times we crawled at a snail's pace. Other times, a California Highway Patrol car lead a pack of us through. Fining a Denny's was impossible (Denny's has been a regular morning stop for us since we know exactly what to expect. Allie likes the way they poach eggs for her). Denny's huge yellow sign was totally hidden in the fog. We got lucky and found one on the edge of Bakersfield. The manager was incredibly professional and personable. I felt sorry for him because he expected a big day since so many travelers were on the road over the Thanksgiving weekend, but no one that wasn't a regular could see his sign.

The fog was thick until we crested Tehachapi Mountains.

Allie has been doing awesome. Keep praying for us...

Meanwhile, check out this video from Aaron created yesterday. It's been fun having the kids around.

It sounds as if you're making pretty good time. I'll bet it's cold in Flag'!

I have friends in Tehachapi, pastoring a church. I'd like to go see them there, sometime, before they retire.

When I was growing up, I often heard references to "praying through." I think you guys are being "prayed across"--the country, that is. :o) I hope the trip continues to go well.

I'm so excited! I've been praying for you all and will continue to do so. I lived in Arizona. A town called Kingman. The videos are cool.
