Day One: We dropped the kids off at school and were at the airport by 9:00 a.m. We had a direct flight, but with the time difference, arrived just before 5:00 p.m. We had a nice tour of the parking lots before catching the right shuttle to car rentals. :) Oh well, at least I got this photo of Robbie in front of the old, rat-pack era terminal. (Rob and Robbie were both rolling their eyes at me every time I pulled out my camera by the end of the trip, but on the first day I hadn't hit my stride, and only took one picture.)
We finally got on the road, headed for Gettysburg for the night. Of course we were starving, since we opted to skip the small, overpriced sandwiches they were serving on the airplane. So we stopped at a Chevy's in Gaithersburg, Maryland on our way. We waited almost an hour for our food before we finally left in frustration and went to Subway. Worst service ever.
Although Rob will tell you that I was dozing for most of the two-hour drive there, I was awake enough to notice the beautiful scenery. There were spring green trees everywhere. Funny how Salt Lake doesn't seem like a desert unless you visit someplace that isn't. We stayed at the Wyndham in Gettysburg, and were only there long enough to sleep, but would definitely recommend it. I didn't take photos, but they have some awesome ones if you click on the link. It took all day, but by the end we were finally ready for our adventure.
