Our first road trip

This past weekend we drove the car down from San Francisco to San Diego to get the camper installed. We parked with a bunch of truckers in a parking lot, and were awakened the next day by a van full of barking dogs. This was the first time we slept in the car, and I am looking forward to having the camper done. It works ok to have two people sleep in the Element even without a camper on top, but it’s pretty crowded. There are two sleeping options:

1) Remove the front seat headrest, fold the seat flat, and fold the back seat flat to create a ‘bed.’ Cornelius seemed to think this was the more comfortable option, but I thought it wasn’t flat enough.
2) Push the front seat forward all the way, flip the back seat up, and sleep on the floor. Here’s a picture of Cornelius still asleep the next morning.

You can also see what a scenic location we chose for the night. No really, this is scenic for the 5 in California.
