The day we have been waiting for for two years is finally here! We chilled on Easter taking a day of rest so we had a few last min. Things to pack and get the car loaded. We pulled out of our driveway just before 11:00am which was better than we expected and only forgot the water bottles as far as we know (they made it as far as the garage). They are totally replaceable. We decided to diverge from our normal route across Oregon and turned toward the east and the Bend area. We made a longer day of day one because the kids have been to Idaho a few times and we want to save our slower days for when we are covering new territory. We pulled in to our friends house in Emmett around 9:30pm.
