Since North Dakota, I have been able to sit behind the steering wheel for 1-2 hours a day. As long as it is not city driving, I feel comfortable even at 75 mph. Poor J.J., he feels more relaxed when he is driving. I think he actually gets more stress sitting in the passenger seat :-)
I eagerly relinquished driving this morning as we passed Ogden, Salt Lake City and Provo, almost one continuous metropolis. Nephi is a small, quaint community. J.J. and I became familiar with Nephi as we frequented stayed here the first year of our travels in Honu. Nephi Community Pool Park was a perfect place to find a nice shaded area for our picnic lunch. While J.J. took a nap, I walked around the park and reached my walking goal of 4 miles today.
We have been blessed with great weather for most of this week. But today we were driving through heavy rain all the way to Kanarraville, Utah.
J.J. and I learned of Typhoon Jebi that hit Osaka and Kyoto. We also read of the 6.7 earthquake that struck south of Sapporo in Hokkaido. Both natural disasters have resulted in loss of lives, loss of homes, business and property.
J.J. and I send our thoughts and prayers to our friends and their communities.
Aloha -- Cathi
