Day 588 of Life on the Road as a Family – Home!

IMG_2912We’re back!  We drove the RV 19,032 miles in 19 months, 10 days and 4 hours and made it home to Bend, Oregon without a single traffic accident – how lucky we are!  Nate drew our progress on this little, old map we used to refer to for school, and now I want to frame it.  We went to 42 states, some multiple times as we wound our way around the USA and NE Canada.  We also drove the tow vehicle another 13,000 miles.  Every mile was awesome and we’d do it all over in a heartbeat.

It’s almost an out of body experience to be home and have everything be the same, while we have been all over this incredible country of ours and have so much crammed in our brains.  Plus a few thousand pictures to remind us when we forget!  When Dan and I finished our trip in 1998, re-entry was tough.  There were so many places we still wanted to see and we weren’t sure what we were stopping for.  Now we’ve seen everything we had been dreaming of, and are ready to get the kids through high school and resume our friendships here.  Home is an excellent four letter word.
