2019 Moab Trip – Day 1

At Christmas when we were together, we talked about taking another family trip. The one thing we wanted to work around was Miss B’s schedule. Now that she’s in school we have to check her schedule. So it was decided to go over Spring Break, the week of March 18. Then we had to decide on where to go. Too early for Yellowstone, Tommy and I poo-pooed Disney and/or the beach and we had been to Capitol Reef, Bryce and Zion the previous year. We talked about Moab/Arches, which Tommy and I both loved and thought the weather there would be decent that time of year. In addition, Hall had never been. So, Moab it was!

Tommy and I got up early and left the house at 5:25 on Friday, March 15. We left Bubba with Sue and Lucy and hit the road. Traffic was heavy and when we got to the Ohio River we saw lots of signs of flooding.

Our first stop for gas was in Warrenton, MO, at 3:00. Gas 32.7 gals = $75.28. We got to Kansas at 5:45 and kept going till we got to the Doubletree in Lawrence at 6:15. We had dinner at the hotel. Tommy ordered a Rye on Rye 6 brewed by Boulevard and said it was excellent.

Miles driven – 824.
