This blog is an account of Jacob and Mike's (Skippy) cross-country trip to move Jacob from Chicago, IL to Irvine, CA. We decided we'd document the trip by making a blog post for every hundred miles we drove, in addition to anything else of interest. There is a map that I made with a thumb tack in each place where we wrote a blog post.

Good morning Gill. I said good morning, Gill

10:58AM MDT | N36°29'7" W112°7'36"

We're headed towards the Grand Canyon and we should be there fairly soon. We're currently in Fredonia, AZ. I took a picture of the sign for Sarah who went to school in an entirely different Fredonia.

Last night we pulled into the Best Western in Kanab, UT to find a woman complaining about her room and trying to get her money back. Some of the highlights of her argument: 1) The room next door is being loud and her husband can't sleep. 2) There's something yellow and sticky in the sink. 3) The carpets are dirty.

We left for the Super8 next door since it was mentioned in the conversation that there weren't any other rooms. We went our own little walk for hunger once we got settled in only to find that Kanab closes down at 10:00. It did seem like a pretty nice little town. There were lots of a little closed cafes that we wished we could have eaten at. Oh well. On the advice of our concierge we headed to "the only stop light in town" as it was referred to by three separate residents. Upon reaching the fabled stop light we found a Mexican Restaurant.

I love that second photo. Like the clouds are just dancing away, out of the shot.

Yes, Fredonia AZ. Rumor in our Fredonia is there's a college there too, where certain plans for our campus were meant to be built. I'm sure it's just one-a-those-stories.
