WE are in North Carolina, OUT TRIP IN RETRO
ITRIED SEVERAL LOADS FOR PIC'S THIS IS THE ONE THAT TOOK, WOW!
Our trip in a nut shell. We were on the Road 84 days. We visited 22 states and traveled 10,937 miles.
We met some wonderful folks and shared some fantastic times. We saw some beautiful sights. Some of the folks were met for the first time. Some were renewed acquaintances and some were even kin. LIKE BEN & ELSIE MAE, COREY, HOWARD & AUNT AGGIE. AND DID I MENTION ELSIE MAE?
In all the miles we had a little trouble to speak of: Two wind storms where we lost an awning and warped a door and two tire incidents. Nothing that called a halt to our odyssey.
We just wanted to report that this was probably the most rewarding trip we have made around the USA. Off the top of my head I will not start naming names, I will do that when I have had a chance to make sure I get it right.
Regrets, yes two or three. We missed seeing Lucy and Joe, plans just did not work out. I missed going to Mexico and getting some dental work done because of the unrest and killings (26,000 murders in the last few years!!!)
We headed home a little sooner than planned and missed San Antonio, one of our favorite places in the USA. Also there we had hoped to meet Paula’s turtles and kiss Shelly Marie!!!!
We are back in Belmont. We passed Shirl as we were driving in and she came down to see us and we had a good visit.
Tonight we are making reservations for our next trip in three weeks.
Thanks for sharing our trip with us.
A bank is a place that will lend you money, if you can prove that you don't need it.
Whenever I fill out an application, in the part that says "If an emergency, notify:" I put "DOCTOR".
