    We are home again. We left Brainerd on Monday, not because we wanted to, but because we have to be mature, responsible adults who take care of their four cats and house and yard. We drove straight to Elkhart, Indiana to spend the night. The reason for this side trip was to look at a car to replace my Acura that was totalled in May. We ate dinner in Portage, Indiana, the town I spent my first 12 years. I didn't recognize anything!  Unfortunately, the car did not pan out, so we were back on the road Tuesday morning, this time heading south. We made one stop outside of Cincinnati to see my college roomie, Olivia. Boy, was she ever surprised to see us! We had a wonderful visit, and then Ted and I headed home. We arrived after 9:00, and I must say, it was good to sleep in my bed again.
  What a trip! Seventeen days, over 5,000 miles, many friends and family members, national parks, state parks, lakes, three major bike trails, almost 200 miles of biking, Mount Rushmore, Devil's Tower,a look back into history, the list goes on and on. We did it again--packed every minute of every day and loved every moment of it! We feel very blessed to have the health and ability to travel, and we thank God for His many gifts. We also thank all of you sweet, wonderful, generous folks who opened your homes and hearts to us. We love you all!
