Well guy's, 2 Months ago I went up to Shelton Washington to visit my aunt.
It was a Friday and we were on the 215 goin' to a friends house in my mom's car (Me, My mom & my sister, Which I have 2 of...)
Anyway we were drivin' along and we here a loud BANG! Like Somethin' flew up & hit the car.
Well We pulled off, and it turns out that the lady drivin' the truck ahead of us had a table & chair in her pickup, one of the chairs flew out & hit my mom's car...
Here are pictures of the damage, taken when it happened:
The car could still be driven, we got the information, and headed home, we figured that it would be a week or so before the insurance company could fix the car, we were supposed to leave to Washington the next day, so we were gonna drive it there. I told my mom to stop drivin' through furniture stores. Well, The Bodyshop that did the work was gonna take 2 weeks, because they had to order the left rear quarter panel. So, The insurance company of the driver who's chair hit us paid for a rental car.
It was Saturday about 12:30-PM when we picked up the 2010 Chrysler 300 Touring we were usin' to go there. This car had 600 miles when we picked it up and 5,436 miles when we dropped it off 3 weeks later.
The first thing we had to do before we left was pick up my little sister from her friends house in San Diego. We racked up 120 miles just doin' that...
While we there, we went to a little park, where I took the followin' pictures:
Here is the view of the Park:
Here are the first pictures I took of the Chrysler.
Then we headed home and had to get ready to leave.
So fast forward to 9:56-PM we are headed on our way on the 215 towards the 60. I have The Beach Boys on my iPod and I'm set...
We eventually got to the Interstate 5, Which is what we took most of the 1,300 miles there.
This Chrysler was easier to drive for my mom, as it is an Automatic, as my mom's car is a 5-Speed...So it was a better deal anyways.
We stayed up ALL NIGHT the first day, I was to excited to be tired.
The Next day, We were in Mount Shasta, and it was snowin'...
So we pulled off and I took some pictures:
We then went about 15 more miles, and hit Traffic!
(You can see a Super-Duty in this picture, anyone know what year...?)
There was a 20 car pile up, and it took us 5 hours of sittin' in traffic for them to clear out all the cars.
So, I went & took 2 more pictures of the snow.
We spent the night in Weed California, and we were on the road on April 9th at 6:00AM.
But, First, We were Hungry!
So, We went lookin' for food...
And here's what we found!
& Lemme tell ya, It was good eatin', and they brought out a TON of food.
I had a ham & cheese omelet with mashed potatoes.
My little sister had a Denver omelet.
My other little sister had somethin' and my mom didn't order anything.
(And, in case your wonderin' No, My parents aren't together, and my dad wasn't on this trip)
While I was there, I looked around, they had some cool pictures on the wall, I took a picture of one of 'em, It didn't come out very well.
So I went out to the parkin' lot and took the followin' pictures:
Anyone know what year that Super-Duty is...?
(Through-out this trip I will see 20 more Super-Dutys and take pictures of a couple more)
