Home Again!

Hugs and kisses all around from my patient family.






5,000-plus miles in 5 weeks through 11 states.  Visited 18 National Park Sites and got 25 new passport stamps.  I wonder how this journey could have been so relaxing.  But it was. 





I'm thrilled that there were only a few hiccups.  The biggest being the transmission work required that kept me in Rapid City for an extra 2 days.  But even that was fun.  I haven't spent a day at the mall since the 1970s!

In the next few days, I'll get together the financial stats and share them with you.

  4. Don't know how I found you (women go solo?) but I enjoyed following along. I'm about to set out on my own trip and was wondering about your little map and how you got it?
    thanks,
    Yolanda

    1. Thanks, Yolanda! I'm glad you found me.

      Google maps. You can save your trip to 'my places'. Then go back and edit as needed.

      If you want to know how to imbed the map on a website, let me know. It's involved, but not difficult.

  9. There was a time in my life that I traveled solo a lot for my job. I had plenty of free time and enjoyed lots of things on my own. Now I am looking forward to full time with Craig. Everything in it's time. do you thin your husband will ever want to RV too?

  12. Great trip but a LOT of miles in 5 weeks. I know you're glad to be home. For a while :-)

  13. Good to know you had a good trip. Must be nice to be home. I too have been on the road for five weeks. Four weeks in Canadian Rockies and now first week in Alaska. At 6,500 miles and counting I hope to be home by August. Sure do meet many nice people while traveling. Starting to worry if Roadtrek will get me home again. The RT has taken a beating on rough Yukon gravel roads. Full time Roadtrek live ins are more common than I ever thought. I now know I could run away from home and survive. Something I didn't believe until this last month.
    Take care Kim and many happy travels.

  15. That was a great road trip thanks for the ride. Only 2 shut downs isn't bad for covering so much territory.

  16. Ah & back in time to celebrate Father's day with John. After all, he took care of little Doris!
    I'll have to go back & read about your adventures now, since my computer has been down. I've fallen really behind!
