We made it to the bay area last night and moved into an RV park in Concord this morning. We will spend the rest of today and Christmas with Mary and Barry, about a 20 minute drive from here. Andrew and Jen will join us starting this afternoon and Seven and Sarah will fly in tomorrow night. It has been raining off and on here and is now 55 degrees. We move to near downtown San Francisco on Sunday.

We have driven for 2 days and covered 1000 miles through Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Oklahoma, and part of texas. We are spending tonight in a Wal-Mart parking lot in Amarillo, Texas. We have 1300 miles to go and hope to get to Concord, California by Wednesday noon. The truck and trailer are doing well (but I will have to change oil tomorrow). It has been in the 60's today, but snow and rain is forecast for tomorrow (!). My computer in the back is getting a rough ride, but it still works fine. The national wireless internet (Verizon) works but takes some getting used to. The girls play a lot of computer games and get at each other a little more than usual, but it doesn't look like there will be any permanent scars.
