We made it home to Mt. Vernon

I really pushed since I had good weather and arrived home in Mt. Vernon yesterday, Monday the 20th about noon. It was spring (arrived 10:26am) both by the calendar and weather-wise, so thanks to all who helped by making the weather good. I drove 1757 miles in 70.5 hours including sleep & rest time. That is not the way I prefer to travel (I like 200 miles a day or less) but I wanted to get through the mountains and passes in northern California and southern Oregon while we were between storms and another was predicted to arrive from the Gulf of Alaska late Sunday. I guess it is late but the sky is overcast here this morning so maybe it is here now.

I have a few things to get done including working with the last photos and I will try to get to them today or tomorrow, and then get them posted. Huggy seems glad to be back home to the house where she has a lot more room to roam and it never gets as cold overnight as the RV often did.

A question was asked in one of the comments as to what I was going to do with this blog when I returned home and was not RVing at the moment. The answer is that I don't know but I expect I will continue it with ongoing activities. In a little over a week I will head back to Tucson to drive the Miata home and that should generate some different things to write about, but Huggy will not be along.

Comments:

Who's going to take care of Huggy?

I'd like to thankyou for the time you spent here, journaling your travels. It was a treat to see all your photos and the interesting sights that you shared along the way. But most of all, thank you for taking us all along with you and welcoming us into your life in this way.
If you ever decide to travel up over the 49th parallel, I hope you will make sure to have Maple Ridge as one of your stopping places.
