It’s February 6th and we’ve finally arrived in Mountain View.  The trip was largely uneventful, having driven through South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California. We drove I-20 from end to end, 1,539 miles.  We were surprised at the vast expanses of nothingness, as well as a greenness of the vegetation in California.  We’ve not been here in the spring before and it is very beautiful.

We will be spending the next two nights with Colin and Andrea then moving into our place in Santa Cruz on Monday. We drove past the house on our way here and it looks quite lovely.   The weather looks great for next week so it should be a good time.
