As we talked about my blog earlier, the link is here:

https://thelauratrail.wordpress.com

There are only two posts on it now. One is the story behind the trip and why we are taking it (which is also the 'About' page), the other I posted today about the troubles of preparation and the chance we maybe can't even leave tomorrow...

Thanks River. :D I'm glad people enjoy reading it.

Today we will drive to Pepin. I also had written a quite lengthy post about what went wrong yesterday with the journey here, which will go online later today.

Just caught up with your blog Cora.

Glad you finally got there safely and are enjoying it so far. It does sound really interesting.

Can I just say too, I love using maps rather than a SatNav or TomTom. :D

Thanks Ash. :D The great thing with a map is that you can always check out some obscure roads. Navigation systems can sometimes be handy in a big city, but otherwise I never use them.

Not been on here for six months. just had a tough few months - sickness and almost losing my mom in a car crash last month, it's been hard on me but on the flipside, I got another autograph and a hooded sweatshirt with a free sticker from California back in May...

Hey Skyfall it great to see you again! But I'm sorry to hear about your mom hoping she is doing better now. Glad you had fun in California always nice to take a fun trip.

Hope your trip is going well Cora and having a lot of fun. I will have to catch up on your blog look like a few new posts I haven't read yet.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend. This weekend is the d 23 event in California that is a Disney convention they do every two year to update on Disney projects, Of course my main focus will be waiting for any new theme park news, should be getting a lot later tonight so will have to catch up after getting home from work.

Really sorry to hear that Skyfall, sounds like a lot to deal with.

Jag the Disney convention sounds great! I love all things theme park and Disney. Just a pity I've never been, hopefully in the next couple of years.

Enjoy your holiday covlolly :)

Nice job Heart! That is correct 50 points for you. I'm sure you pick her because you know all about the great movie ride at Disney Hollywood studios and learn that it was closing on August 13th for ever and she is in it as a Animatronic with her co-star Humphrey Bogart in that famous last scene in Casablanca.


Well I went to Disney Hollywood yesterday to ride the ride one last time before it closed for ever. And guess who I took a pic of?

And here are two pics from the wizard of oz part of the ride. Just for the fun of it lol
