    Well thanks to the good old military i had to up and leave from Miami to good 'ol Bremerton, WA...yea, not even Seattle! Took some pics along the way, hope yall enjoy them!

    Here's the dogs, getting in a last minute nap before we take off, since we had to make it to Texas to visit my parents by the next day, we left at 4:30am, giving me approx. 1.5hrs of sleep! 5 hr energies, here i come!

    Stayed in Texas with the family for a few days then took off early next morning, 10 hours later, still in texas, but with views of Mexico on the other side of I-10:

    Just north of LA, we decided to randomly stop at some farmer store to get some treats, here is what ive been dragging this whole time:
    P6120482.jpg

    We wanted to make this a scenic route, so we took some random highway that linked I-5 to to Highway 1 which ran along the coast....turned out to be a bad decision to take this highway...this is the beginning of it:
    P6120485.jpg

    turned out that this road took us directly through the mountains..hairpin turns and windie roads...i white knuckled that steering wheel the whole time..luckily, no mishaps :) here is a view directly out my passenger side window
    P6120489.jpg
    here is a semi decent shot of what the road looked like, the wife didnt really think it was a good idea to take pictures of what the road looked like...for some reason....who knows..
    P6120492.jpg

    atleast it wasnt for nothing, we were able to catch a glimpse of a good view...

    passing through the Golden Gate, kinda sucked it was at night though...
