Snippet Sunday: FRESH BEGINNINGS 21/06/2015 #travel #Route66

FRESH BEGINNINGS
We continue with Fresh Beginnings, Jared's story as he travels through five states
 in the US in a Motorhome. I used our itinerary from our US travels two years ago
 and wrote a romance story around in.
Jared has just arrived in the US.
Enjoy!

Jared was able to follow the GPS and make it out of Los Angles alive and in one piece. Not that hard, he thought. Somewhere close to San Bernardino, he stopped to stock up for food and then made his way up through the San Bernardino National Forest towards Vegas. He knew it'd be a long drive on the first day, but he was sure he'd make it. He felt a bit weary, but the excitement of driving through America for four weeks in the little motorhome kept him wide-awake in anticipation.

The library staff had provided him with piles of books and website addresses to find out where to go and what to see. Vegas hadn't been on many of those lists, but had always been mentioned as a You're there, you might as well go and have a look. And that was what he was going to do. He drove along, humming along to the American country music blaring from the radio. There wasn't much to see in this vast part of California, and Jared was pleased when he finally made it to Vegas later that afternoon, found an RV Park and checked in.
Jared paid and was about to leave when he turned and asked, "Mate, what on earth is PedXing?"
The guy chuckled. "Pedestrian crossing," he replied.

Jared laughed. "Yeah, I don't think I would've guessed that one. I'm glad they told me to look for RV and not caravan park."

  9. It's interesting how he's so looking hard for things to do, but he's got a sense of things he 'should do' while he's there.
