149 simple steps

Google map directions from our local airport to our hotel in Beijing.

First we have to go through Vancouver to reach the Pacific.  Not the most direct route from Arizona.  
#34 is quite shocking but nice to see that it's the scenic route through Hawaii.  Maybe Google thinks your arms will be tired after 2,756 miles, and we'll need a little break. 
Patch is thinking #50 will be quite fun.
Starting at #51 I can't read any of the signs anyway.
#100 - #102 are leave much to the imagination, but maybe when we get there be obvious. 
Papa really needs to bring a lot more money for all those toll roads!

I'm thinking... just maybe... I should have allowed for a little more time to make this journey!

We leave in 4 1/2 days!

  3. No fair! You get to jet ski across the pacific while we had to kayak-- apparently while towing our car on a raft (for the toll roads). You have to stand for the journey, but at least you don't have to row.

  4. I liked the ones around 100-103 - turn right - turn left - turn right - I guess the mean the first turns? ;) If they'd added one more turn left you'd catch up to yourself! ;)

    hugs - aus and co.

  5. We did this Google search as well. One site told us "there may not be sidewalks the entire route". Hahaha...

  6. Hey, don't worry, though - you don't have to GO to Canada, it's just I-5 North TOWARD Canada. :) You get in your kayaks in Seattle. There's an REI pretty close, I bet they'd get you hooked up with everything you would need. ;)
