Our drive back across The States reminded us of some of the beauty and comfort in our own country. On the Interstate Highway system the driving was fast and smooth although by speeding across the country that fast we missed many of the small towns, restaurants, bars and people. Las Vegas was a drive-through for us and we find it strange that this unusually American icon had sprung up in the middle of a dessert. It was spring and the mountains still had significant snow cover even though most ski areas were closed. It took us five days to drive from San Diego to Indiana where we began our sojourn 19 months ago.
Amelia turned 200,000 miles in Iowa!
We’d planned a little over 60 days in Indiana to stop and let everything catch up with us as well as reconnoiter, disassemble, assess damage, make adjustments/repairs, rethink the contents we were carrying and plan the next leg of the journey into the Maritime Provinces of Canada. It was a time to reconnect with friends and family as well as reach deep into our awaiting basket of responsibilities. Funny they didn’t go away.
