We're Home!

How do we end something like this? Patti Sue's choice was that we just keep driving west on Highway 12 and 'Do West'.  While I agreed, we were overruled and we came home.

What kind of summary can be done?  Well, for us, it means some lists.  Check out the  Summary Lists  for trivial information we accumulated.


Thank you for reading our pages and enjoying our trip with us.  It seemed like we had more fun and savored the time more knowing that we were sharing it.  Your feedback was what got us to keep the pages up -- although we did enjoy doing it!  We'd also like to thank everyone we visited and everyone who made the trip possible (especially Mike and Millie for watching our house and cats!)  If you're reading this, we probably couldn't have done this without your help -- so, as inadequate as it may seem as payment:  Thanks.  We'll remember this trip for a long time and enjoy it over and over again.  As Jeff said on our last night in the RV, "Hey, in twenty years, let's get together and do this again!"
