After putting in about 300 miles today, I arrived home with the greetings of several family members.
Logged just over 6,000 miles in 18 days, through two countries and 18 states.
I officially checked off the last of the 48 contiguous states. Now all I have left to travel through is Alaska, and that will have to be another day. Right now, I’m tired and am glad to be home.
Some closing thoughts. I experienced a lot of different things on this trip. The weather was remarkably good. Other than a few sprinkles, I had dry roads the whole trip. Interesting enough, the worst of the weather was my last 4 miles of the trip returning to the Salt Lake Valley. As I merged onto I-15, off of I-215, I hit some pretty strong winds and rain. I had to travel over 6,000 miles to experience my worst weather right in my own backyard.
I had some very special and personal moments in the Sacred Grove in Palmyra, New York. Penny and I shared some special times in Kirtland, Ohio. I met a lot of different people in my travels and saw some incredible countryside. But there is nothing as exciting and pleasing to my eyes as home and family.
It’s good to be home. Thanks for following along with me and sharing in my trip.
Until next time…
