Allstate Foundation: Drive it Home

Anyone who reads my blog knows that safe driving habits are near and dear to my heart. Many the post has been dedicated to ranting about how poorly people drive, especially in Sacramento where the red light running seems like it’s reached epidemic proportions.

Mixing it up with some Sacramento Bloggers

Half of the fun of a trip is getting there, right? Well this time next month, I will be getting ready to drive half way across these United States to my new home in Minnesota.
