We arrived home yesterday, August 9, 2017 at about 1:40 PM. Yes, we are very glad to be home. We had a great time on the trip, but 9 weeks and 2 days is a long time to be living on the road, with only 2 night stay overs here and there along the way. We saw a lot of sights we’d never seen before, and reveled in the beautifully wild scenery. Our appreciation of the environment and history was enhanced by national, state and provincial parks and museums. We saw enough wild country and wildlife to be able to say that those early settlers were freaking crazy! So much was done on foot, and one’s living comfort was limited to what one could carry. Nothing at all like our little jaunt, where the biggest hardship was lack of cell phone coverage.
In any case, we are home, and grateful to be here. I would recommend a trip like ours to anyone with the ability and resources to take it. It helped me remember how wonderful it is to just be alive.
