Up early, we cleaned up the cabin, packed and loaded the truck. Drew's girlfriend Kaylen has a going away party this afternoon at 2:00 p.m. and we need to get Drew and Morgan back. Kaylen is flying to New York at midnight to pursue an acting career.
After a few rushed good byes, we hit the road about 9:15 a.m. With a couple of stops, we were back in Elk Grove by 1:00 p.m. This is probably the earliest that we have been back in years.
Typically, I follow a large group down to Chico and we have a late lunch at the Graduate. I enjoyed driving back with Drew, Morgan and Jack, but it felt odd not to end the week with lunch at the Graduate.
