To blog, or not to blog...that had been the question! If you have received this...the decision had apparently been made! As we were talking this winter about possible travel this summer we discovered that there was a "hole" in the State of New York that we had never explored. Our plans had been to do so when we were coming back from our caravan to Newfoundland in 1999, but John's back was bothering him and we decided that discretion being the better part of valor (besides which I didn't want to hear him complain!!) we would head home instead and catch that area of our beautiful country at another time. Well, fourteen years later, we decided that this summer was "another time" and as all went well, we were able to check this area off of our "been there and done that" list. We hope you enjoyed our ride as you traveled with us vicariously...

I am writing this entry after the trip is already over. We discovered that TravelPod counts the mileage and marks the map on a journey starting from the first entry. Since I didn't start this blog until July 14 when we stopped for our first night on the road, I wanted to make sure that all of our miles are calculated! After all, when you make a trip, you want to have EVERY mile count! We did have a great trip and it seemed from all of the comments and emails as if everyone enjoyed reading our blog also.

We spent the day before we headed out doing the usual "get ready" on Mufasa. I did manage to cut back on the amount of clothes I packed...no such effort was made on the amount of shoes! We also had decided to not take everything out of the refrigerator at home but only pack the basics. I did that, and things worked just fine as far as food was concerned.

There does seem to be a certain rhythm that we become accustomed to when we travel, and this trip was no exception. We have felt for years that when we leave home in the RV, we close the door on one life and step out into the adventure of another one. The symptoms of this reverse once we pull back in front of our house. Strange but true. I have said for years that our RV is our cocoon and I guess that is the case!

We thank once again all of you who journeyed with us.
