Alaska Bound

Hi!  This is Kati, Tom & Janis' daughter. Mama wanted me to post this for her.  They have not been able to post from the iPhone like they thought they could.

Here's what she said:

We left yesterday at 5pm. We reached Knoxville, TN around 11pm and stayed there for the night. Most of the travel time was filled with light rain.

This morning we got back on the road again around 6:45. Tonight we will be staying in Minneapolis and hope to arrive there at the latest around midnight.

The current driving conditions are excellent. Slight clouds, clear, and 63 degrees.

Bonnie is in a great mood. She's been very giggly. She laughed driving through the tunnels and over the really big bridges.

Tom has been the sole driver so far.

I am almost finished with the baby afghan I started crocheting during the trip yesterday.

Our passports never came in before we left, so we have an appt tomorrow to get one while we wait.

Completly off subject, Lizzy, Mama got your card and loves it!  She's saving all the handmade ones she's gotten to put in her scrapbook.

That's it for now!

Thanks for the update, Kati!

Janis - hope the trip is continuing to go smoothly! I bet you are seeing some fantastic fall foliage!

I managed to get a small, first care pkg. out to James a few days ago, and hope that once things settle down at work (another week or so), to get more mail out to him and your mom.

Take care & enjoy the journey!
