On your marks.....
Four days to go before the off and suddenly it feels like we have no time left to do all the planning and preparation. Three months ago I always felt a little silly checking if roads were open or closed, or the temperature in Las Vegas.
But now there are so many things to do - not least get money sorted, check routes etc, plan the itinerary.
I've also just checked the temperature in Las Vegas..... highs of 27 degrees celsius.

And San Francisco is a mild 20 degrees.

But there's plenty of other stuff to apart from be smug about the weather.
I have a rough idea of what routes we're taking but I need to be sure - we don't want to take a wrong turn in Death Valley!
