I have to apologize for getting this blog post up later today. We were on our way back from a spontaneous trip from St. George, UT and stopped in Vegas for a few hours to shop and of course let my husband drive a Lamborghini around a race track. (part of his birthday gift) We didn’t end up leaving Vegas until about 5. Which is THE worst time to start your drive home to California. Apparently, everyone and their dog is heading back to California on Sundays after the weekend. You would think we would catch on to this by now, but nope we sure haven’t 🙂
So since we left around 5ish the GPS calculated that we would be home around 10:30. Not bad right? Well, traffic was so backed up that we checked on Google Maps to see how long traffic was and when it would be over. My husband mentioned that Google found a way around the traffic and it would save an hour and a half on time. So, DUH!! no brainer. We decided to give it a try. Turns out, it was a dirt road!!!! ha What? We still decided to take it and we weren’t the only ones with the idea! We had about 10 cars in front of us on a 5 mile dirt road. It made for a fun little adventure!
We made it back to the main freeway after the 5 mile dirt road fun, where traffic was almost to a complete stop STILL… UGH!! For another hour of that, we finally drove past the cause of the traffic. A semi truck had caught on fire. So sad. We aren’t sure what caused the fire, But we were so glad we we caught the ending as they were cleaning everything up.
We didn’t end up getting home until 1:40 last night!
So our 7 hour drive turned into a over 10 hour drive!
I tried to finish this post on the road using my hotspot, but with such spotty service there was no chance I was going to get it done.
I am just happy to be home and work work work!!!
