We hit the road at 6:47am Pacific time on Saturday July 2nd. The photo shows the car and the car top carrier. We tested it out the day before and made a few adjustments. With our suitcases and all other items secured inside, there were only a few details for the morning and we were on our way!
We headed east across California and Nevada then into Utah. At Salt Lake City we headed south. After 18 hours of travel we decided to find a hotel in Green River, UT. At this point, we realized we would have to get onto the roof to get our suitcases. Lacking the ambition and energy for that, we decided to put it off until the morning. Morning came quickly and we still didn't have the energy so in all day two photos we are wearing the same clothes as day one. The lesson learned was to pack a change of clothes and toiletries in a small bag to keep in the car.
