Ah, familiarity breeds contempt sometimes, yes?
In 9,600 miles of travel (19 states over the past 27 days), we had to run our windshield wipers twice, during light rain showers in Washington. Then we hit the Ohio border two days ago, and the deluge started and hasn’t quit yet!
We also realized that after leaving home, our seasonal allergies dissipated. By the time we reached Mississippi, they were almost totally gone. Now? Kleenex and Allegra, sneeze and snort.
Back in the old routine; yeah, man…
But hey, that won’t dampen my spirits today. Time to get back at it, as preparations for school are staring me in the face. Today will be spent restocking Mother Hubbard’s cupboards, with a trip to Costco and Whole Foods. The rest of the week will be catching up with family and friends.
I want to thank you all again, dear fiends, for coming to read and share in our Odyssey this summer. It meant a lot to me! I had a few more “visitors” stop in this year than last, although only a few posted comments. (I can see stats on whereabouts in the world readers are, but no identifying information.) Still, I hope you enjoyed the pictures.
As a result of the last four journeys, I plan to write an e-book about preparing for and executing the Great American Road Trip. I know books have been written on this topic already, but my joy will be writing about how to do the little things that, in our experience, make the voyage more enjoyable and less stressful. Very few may read my little treatise, but it will surely be a labor of love.
Where to on the next Fink Odyssey, you ask? Why, Virginia, DC, Maryland and Atlantic City, of course! Plans begin in 3…2…1…
