End of this winters Trip to Mexico

I know I’m late in writing this but there are extenuating circumstances – really there are.

First and foremost – lack of Internet access. We can only get on line when the modem feels like cooperating. Called Hughes Net and they are sending a technician out next Tuesday. The joy of living in the sticks.
Back to the end of the trip. Thursday morning was our last day on the road. This year we did 6613 miles in Jennie – and God Knows how many in Willie going here and there. We were on the road 149 days.
As you can see from the map most of the driving was in the U.S. coming and going.
The final day of travel was pretty uneventful. There was a storm moving east but luckily we were moving east faster than it was. Drove through Illinois and into Indiana. Only stopping once at a Flying J for brunch at Denny’s (sure liked their old restaurants better but….) Just inside the Indiana border we left the I-70 and took State Road 46 towards home. Lots of pretty scenery. Green fields and blooming trees. Around 2:00 we turned on our road and soon were home.
First look at the house through the barren trees as we made the last turn.
Home Sweet Home
And here Jennie is right where she started out in November. The wild daffodils are blooming like crazy.
And the tiny violets popping up here and there.
Checked out the pond and there are still lots of fish in there.
Just a couple of the fish in the picture
So that is the end of our trip this past winter. Now we have lots of work to do around here. Lawn cleanup, house cleaning and repairing, Internet repairing, etc. etc.
For more on that check out my Brown County blog as that is where I’ll be writing from now on – or until our next trip somewhere. In case that doesn't work the URL is http://lifeinbrowncounty.blogspot.com/
If the Internet stays working I’ll try to post some of the interesting (annoying) ways of getting things done here in the country. And we have dealt with plenty this week.
See you over there.
