I worked all day at home, and finally quit about 5:30. Rita had been packing all the kids’ stuff and everything else into the garage, our staging area. Once I was done working, I packed up the bikes, including those of the Berry’s, into the trailer and we finally left around 7PM for dinner at Burrito Factory. We departed, hit the road for Tahoe after dinner about 7:30.<br />n<br />nWe made it all the way to Sacramento before needing to stop for fuel and a bio break. We stopped on Florin Rd in Sacramento, and though there was nothing weird going on, there were some shady looking groups of young men hanging around the gas stations away from the freeway. So we hurried it up.<br />n<br />nIt was smooth sailing the whole way, from the south bay to Sacramento, through Roseville, all the way up the mountain, through Truckee, and into Kings Beach. We encountered no traffic issues, which was probably because a) we were laving on a late Thursday, and b) there was the Rim Fire near Yosemite, whose smoke, reportedly heading north east over Tahoe, probably scared many people into staying home.<br />n<br />nWe arrived at cabin at midnight, straight up. We unloaded bikes and everything else from the trailer and back of the truck, and finally reached lights out at 1:30am. Wow, that’s late for the kiddos!<br />
