Days adventures

Today was a great day. I got to see sand dunes. Rock mountains and really cool parts of the desert. I took pictures while I was driving. I just hold the camera up and snap pictures. So I don't really know how they will turn out. Today I took some pretty good ones. I posted the best ones to share with everyone. I hope y'all enjoy them.

More images of the mountains

This is the first time seeing mountains like this. I enjoyed driving through them very much.

Driving up the mountains

This was the beginning of my climb up these mountains. They look like a pile of rocks that got piled up.


I love this image of the desert with the mountain in the background.

Palm trees

I was driving through the desert and I came across a field of these crazy looking palm trees.

Driving through the desert

I love driving down the road and taking straight ahead like the two on the right. The one above is some cool desert shrubs.

Sand dunes

This is coming out of Arizona into California. The name of this area is called Calexico. This all runs right along the border of Mexico.

Last weekend I was layed over in Ohio which was very exciting because my friend Janet and I got to hang out all weekend. We have not seen each other in over two years, so you can imagine how crazy we were. Our friend Julie and her girlfriend Elizabeth and Janet and I all went to lunch together at my favorite place, whole world. That is them in the picture. From left to right is Julie very tall and a big time basketball star, her girlfriend Elizabeth, I just met her that weekend and she is very sweet, and then my best buddy Janet. I was so glad to take a break after spending a week going through the east coast, and just relax and spend time with friends. I can't wait to see Janet again.

My new manager

I don't know what happened to my old manager Nick. He sent out an e-mail telling his team that we would all be placed with new managers. I was oh so happy. He stressed me out way too much. My new manager however is really cool and on the ball, his name is Brandon. His last name starts with an M I know that because when he sends us messages he signs BM, I think he should come up with a different sign off. I picked up a load 2 days ago from Cincinatti going to Texas. I made it here last night, and before my head hit the pillow I had a new load to pick up. I picked it up here in Texas, and it's going to San Diego. I am a bit nervous because this will be my first time going out west climbing mountains all by myself. But, I was thinking, last week I survived driving through manhattan, the bronx, and baltimore I am sure I can handle the west coast. It 's more spread out. I am pretty excited about it because I get to drive all along the coast and finally I get to go through Yuma Arizona. I hope that I get to see a lot of sand desert. Right now I am still in Texas, it's 138 degrees. I went for a walk that lasted about 10 minutes. I was afraid that I would get a heat stroke. All day tomorrow I will spend getting out of Texas, I have 565 miles to go. That will be my whole day. If you ask me Texas is way too big and they should give some of it back to Mexico. Last week I was on the east coast I drove 500 miles and went through six states. That is as big as Texas, big enough to put six states, or at least parts of six states.
