My grandson Tyler took a road trip by himself and drove from Portland Maine to Portland, Oregon in 11 days and put 7,649 miles on his car.  He visited his Uncle Evan for two days and then turned around and headed back home to Portland, Maine. He too the southern route out to Portland and cane home on the northern route.  Both routes brought him the best weather.  Once he arrived home safely, bad weather hut the Midwest.  How nice it us to be young. 

Hat is it folks, until next week take care, stay safe and stay warm.  God Bless.,
