These last days were spent riding at our favorite riding area: East Fork Rock. The kids were on top of their game and completely blew past Mom’s riding ability. I can officially say I am the slowest rider of the bunch… permanently. On the last day, Mike did say he needed the new CRF450X to keep up with Zachary. What a riot! The old man almost cannot keep up with his 13 year old son. Ha!
The kids didn’t miss home until the truck started its last leg of the journey and pointed north on I-5 passing Fort Lewis. They couldn’t sleep anymore once they recognized the area. Even Mac was up and standing in the back as soon as we got off Highway 18 in Covington. As soon as we let him out of the truck, he was blazing donuts all through the yard. Briana made the comment that our house was too big after she walked in. All of us were so happy to be back in our soft beds. Added a picture of the boys next to a rare car we saw at a dealership in UT. It was in its original condition. 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona.
Over 9,000 miles and 5,000 pictures taken later, our Western Adventure for 2011 came to an end. Only 3.500 of those miles were spent getting from one RV park to another. The rest was the driving we did sight seeing. Wow! The times we shared on this trip will stay in our minds and hearts for many years to come. It was a rare opportunity not many get the chance to do. Thank you Mike for making all of this possible.
