14 hours. We drove 14 hours in what was probably the worst weather I’ve ever driven in, besides maybe that time we were trying to get to the Tampa airport during the tornado warning. We started in Sacramento at 8:30 and found ourselves pulling into Mom and Don’s driveway at about 10:30 that night. A long long day. Moments of tension, moments of slight fear, silly moments, hysterically funny moments, and some very tired moments. And yet… we loved it. Adventure… going with whatever happens, making the most of it, and finding the fun in almost everything. That’s us. We love road trips, and love them still.
Final total coming home… 48 hours from Vegas back home (14 driving in one day), 1200+ miles, three stops for gas, one bone for Weston, two bully stix for Weston, and 12 chai tea lattes. Wow. What a trip!
Thanks Dan, Linda, Amanda, and DJ for putting us up and hanging out with us for a few days. It was good to see you guys. We love you.
Thanks Mom and Don for providing us a nice little sanctuary on our travels back home. The company was lovely and the breakfast terrific.
We are, as of yesterday, Saturday the 4th, back home. A day later than planned, but home. It’s always wonderful to be here after traveling, and today it’s even more so. We slept well, and are just enjoying our being quietly together at home as a little family. Ah, wonderful.
