Anaheim or Bust

Honestly, I do not know how the people in California tolerate driving on the freeways. And why is it called a freeway anyway? They are not free of traffic...or free of stress...

We drove down from Pleasanton, Ca and planned to arrive at Anaheim at around 1:15 according to the GPS we refer to as Gabby. Driving south on the "5" was fairly smooth until we reached the Los Angeles city limits. Bam! Traffic came to a standstill, followed by stop and go traffic for the next 20 miles. Fred repeatedly said the brake on my side of the car does not offer any advantage while driving, but it acts as a stress relief for me.

As my eyes continued to watch the ETA on Gabby, the time kept increasing. With a mere 17 miles left, Gabby now estimated a new ETA of 2:17. She still didn't have it right! We pulled into Harbor RV Resort at 2:35.

Our plans for the next several days include renting a car and seeing the sights. Yes, we may pay a visit to Disneyland but more importantly, we plan on spending Easter Sunday with my favorite niece, Stephanie.
