I’m home safe and sound. Paul and I left South Bend, Indiana, about 10am this morning and headed straight home. It’s been a fun month, but I’m so happy to be home.
We left on September 4th, and here it is October 4th and our trip has come to an end. In the last 4 1/2 weeks we have seen the sublime, the absurd, the funny, the sad and more. We’ve seen president’s graves, and birth places. Temples of the Lord and old abandoned places were on our route too. We’ve seen it all.
It is probably too soon to ask if I’d do it again, but under different conditions, I think I would. One would be to have Elizabethe come with me. Perhaps we’ll figure out a road trip where she won’t get bored to tears.
The Drive Home
The drive home started last week after reaching the end of Route 66 in Santa Monica, California. We got up the next morning and drove to Scotts Valley, California. The day after that we drove to Reno, Nevada, where we spent the night with my old high school buddy Jack. After Reno we headed to my daughter Amber’s house in Saratoga Springs, Utah. Our next stop was Cheyenne, Wyoming for the weekend. (I served in Cheyenne 40 years ago in 1977!!!) We got up Monday and headed to Omaha, Nebraska. Tuesday we stopped in South Bend, Indiana, and now we’re home.
