To Yuma and Back! - RonO's Ramblings

Dec. 19th, 2009 04:50 pm To Yuma and Back!

This morning, robot_grrl and I (Tara did all of the driving, since I'm not allowed to drive until I can turn my neck) took Derrick to Yuma where we met her parents. Derrick will stay with them in Coolidge Arizona until Christmas when they will all return here for a few days.

We got moving about 8:15, and after briefly disagreeing with the GPS over the first part of the route, we headed down its suggestion of taking CA-52 around to CA-125 (at the moment they basically end at each other, although one or both will eventually be extended).

The drive wasn't too bad for me. We did stop for gas and a stretch in El Centro on the way out. We got to Yuma about 20 minutes after my in-laws, and quickly found them at The Cracker Barrel. After lunch, we cross-loaded Derrick's stuff and Tara and I headed back. The trip back was straight through until we got gas in Oceanside.

-- (Now for the TMI)

I'm doing pretty good. I'm still getting some drainage out the drain, but its a lot less than yesterday, and a lot clearer. I'm also not as sore in some places, but the incision itself is actually more sore (or I'm at least noticing it more).

I did consider letting Tara do the drive herself, but I'm glad I went with her -- and not just because I like getting the country ham at Cracker Barrel :-)

If you are out that way again, and like home made chocolates, stop at the Wisteria Candy Cottage in Boulevard. They've been there since 1922 and make some mighty good candies. (Sugar free too!)

52 is currently being extended to 67. The construction occasionally makes my commute interesting. I don't know of a specific timeline for extending 125 to the north, but it'll probably happen eventually.

I could tell driving through that it wasn't intended to be just a turn. Once 52 is extended to 67 (if my reading of the maps is correct) it will make all-freeway trips from North County east notably shorter since 8 actually runs a fair amount North between 125 and 67.

On the other hand, by the time they are connected, we may be living somewhere where it may make as much or more sense for us to use different routes towards the east. (For example, I could see it making more sense from Poway to just take 67, including its non-freeway sections East of there).
