On the road again . . .and one last surprise!
It took two long days of driving to get home from Mount Rushmore but I did add two new states to my list - Nebraska and Kansas. I stopped in Ogallala, NE hoping to see some historical markers but no such luck. Ogallala was where the cattle drives went and there was also a pony express stop there (remember "Lonesome Dove"??) I loved that book:)
Tomorrow morning Walter and I leave for Nashville. We are packed and ready to go!! This will be the first time he has his RV on the road.
Ready to go!!!!
I have also learned I have to be careful what I say on my blog:) But I do have one last surprise for one of my readers. Janet and Nick will be in charge of the drawing this time. No picture because most of the goodies are in my car - somewhere:):) But there are items from the lavender farm, Seattle, and all the national parks I visited and I'll add something from Nashville. Sign up before Saturday at noon CST and I'll mail the package ( U.S. only and winner takes all) when I get back late next week. So, all of you that haven't made a comment this is your chance. I would love to have lots of comments (and stories if you are so inclined). If you have trouble commenting, email and let me know. You do have to scroll down to the "post" button.
Beginning my new life as a "sixty and single" woman started with a "Grand Adventure" of a five month road trip. Included in my travels were a stop in the Grand Canyon, two months in Berkeley, CA, and a ferry ride to Juneau, AK. After my two month Alaskan adventure, I returned on the ferry and visited several more national parks before relocating to Franklin, TN. (its great to have children in fun places) I spent the summer of 2012 working in Yellowstone National Park at Fishing Bridge General Store. Wanderlust has struck!!! I have purchased a Casita 17' Spirit Deluxe travel trailer . . . the adventure continues.
