East Bound

After driving a measly 4 hours today, we were forced to shack up again (I’ll get to that later) for the night due to the icy conditions of the roads.

It’s madness out there.

Last night, traffic came to a halt, and no drivers were allowed through the Rockies without snow chains, or 4-wheel drive. After seeing several cars collide and tractor trailers slide off the road, we decided to spend the night in Salt Lake City and wait for the storm to pass.

We headed out this morning, hoping to reach Nebraska, but mother nature had something else in mind. This time, I-80 has been completely closed off on account of high wind gusts, black ice, and snow fall.

So, we’reĀ  currently cozied up in Rock Springs, Wyoming enjoying the snow.

It’s about -25 degrees outside, but we’re still cooking!

Ah, nothing better on a chilly night than a classic.

Best decision of the trip: bringing the French press

Life is good.
