7 In Liz Travels: Route 66

On the Road Too Long

We’ve been on the road waaay too long. Time to get home.

I left home on May 26. Dash joined me in Chicago on June 4. Rosie (the Camry) has logged almost 6000 miles in the meantime. We’ve negotiated heat, humidity, rainstorms, closed roads, detours, fast food, and annoyed countless locals with sudden roadside stops. Dash and I have remained friends. (A miracle!) But it’s time to stop pushing our luck and return to reality, yard work, and regular meals.

So we’re headed home. We want to thank you for coming along on the journey. We hope you’ve had fun.

Love, Liz (and Dash)

    Loved hearing about your travels. We got to enjoy without sore backs, hips, sweat, lumpy beds, bad food etc (you get the picture.)

    Thanks for taking me along vicariously on your adventure. Now I want to hear all about that “wasn’t fit to print.”

    Thank you for the wonderful commentary on Route 66, Liz. Also still reminding friends is another feat., congratulations. Your car, and driver, I’m sure will enjoy a bath at home.
