One more day of travel, and tomorrow we'll be home (sweet home).
Since 12/20, when we left Crofton, MD, we have traveled through D.C., Virginia, Tennessee, and Arkansas to the Dallas-Fort Worth area of Texas. After a few days, including Christmas at our daughter's house, we headed to Houston to see our son and then traveled through Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina to Pinehurst, North Carolina - our favorite golf resort - for a one-nighter.
As we passed road signs for various cities and towns along the way, names of ActiveRain friends came to mind. If only we had time to stop and meet every one of them!
For the last leg of our trip, we'll go through Virginia again... it's about 7 hours to home (sweet home).
During our long drive, I've taken lots of pictures and made lists of potential blog topics - just in case I ever catch up on my email and have time to blog again. One of the first topics will be to disclose how I managed to make six or seven posts to Focus On Crofton without touching my computer for the past 10 days. Another will be a review of my new mini computer. And I have pictures to share of my visit to "ICE" at the Gaylord Texas on Christmas Eve.
3,400 miles down, about 350 to go... It's been a great trip through 10 states and D.C. in just 10 days. We've experienced temperatures ranging from 15 degrees when we left our motel in Arkansas to 83 degrees a few days later in Dallas-Fort Worth. Today is a sunny balmy 60-ish in N.C., warmer than our last visit here for Thanksgiving 2007. I don't know what weather to expect back home in Maryland, but I'm looking forward to being there to celebrate New Year's Eve.
Happy New Year, everybody!
