And it’s in the books. A whirlwind trip to Wisconsin to visit family, and now instead of posting to you from a laptop in a hotel room, I’m writing from my little parlor at home. It’s good to be back, and Rousseau agrees. He’s happy now.
It was a fabulous trip for sure, and a long one. The pink line is the trip out, and the white represents the drive back:
I have a ton of pictures to be made into prints and put into an album. That’s on my list of 237 things to do in the next 3 weeks before school starts. So off I go…first to the grocery, though.
Thanks to all of you who followed the Odyssey and shared in it with your comments. It was fun! So fun, in fact, that we’ve decided to make an annual event of it. The general plan for summer, 2011:
Have a good Monkday, if that’s possible. Ugh. Car lag.
I’m glad that you’re both back home safe and sound! Thanks for taking all of us along on your journey. I can’t wait to follow you both on the next one!
Hey no prob, Mave! Thanks to you, Rousseau survived! Now we have to plan our Thelma & Louise weekender…it’s coming up fast!
Thanks for sharing your trip with all of us. How many total miles did you drive?
You’re welcome, fiend! We did a little over 4500 miles altogether. I think we’re going to surpass that next summer…haven’t done any itinerary work yet. But we both want to get started soon, because we’re already kind of depressed that this one’s overwith…
Just think, the whole time you were on the road, Lindsay Lohan was in prison.
Yeah, stupid “overcrowding” anyway. What’d she likely learn? Nothin’. But at least she has a taste of what she’ll get if she screws up again.
Glad it was fun and looking forward to hearing about the San Fran excursion next year.I noticed if you take a small detour, you could actually hit up Little Big Horn which, as I remember from my youth, is an awesome visit (They have recreations.) Also find it hilarious that it looks like you’re going out of your way to miss Kansas (Both last trip and next years.)
HA – I wonder why that is?! I have nothing against Kansas…or maybe I do…
I will look up LBH. If it’s not too far out of the way, we will definitely go. We like that kind of stuff.
Look at you, little miss planner!! You GO! You’ll absolutely LOVE SF!!
I know, right? LOL. And neither of us has ever been to SF — we are already excited!
Cool! So glad you had a fab time and that you are already making plans for next year. We are too! We rock!!!
