Hubby and I left San Jose at 9AM on Friday for our drive to Phoenix. We stopped in Gilroy to have breakfast and then drove into Pasadena where we refueled our car and had a bite to eat. We continued to Blythe, CA to gas up one more time before crossing the Arizona state line. We managed to make the 700 mile trip in 10 hours and had only one hiccup when we encountered an accident on the Grapevine which slowed us down for a little bit. Overall it was quite a pleasant drive.
