It has been great to be home again... lunches and dinners with friends at favorite restaurants as well as a few new ones... the Friday night fish fry... buying hickory nuts at the local Farmer’s Market... apple turnovers at Skelly’s Apple Farm... hot chocolate and coffee at Mocha Moments with friends... acoustic music at Cafe Carpe and Charlotte’s Web... hikes and campfires with Ice Age Trail friends in Rock County... making homemade noodles with Mom to serve to my sisters for dinner... visiting our college campus 40 years later and being amazed by all the changes... walking into Farm & Fleet just to smell the tires while shopping for jeans and chocolate... biking the Janesville to Milton trail and reminiscing about signing that section for the Ice Age Trail eight years ago... playing euchre, our favorite card game, with friends after a delicious dinner... hugs and laughter and good times... playing checkers... pizza from Tilley’s Pizza in Beloit... a wonderful lunch and Christmas show at The Fireside dinner theater with my mom... being home for Mom’s 80th birthday party... It has been great to be home again.
Tom had the alignment done on the RV and it is handling much better on the road. Our plan is to head southwest on Monday, Oct. 31. We’ll continue on to the Phoenix area where we will leave the RV at a storage lot and drive our car home. We’ll spend a couple months at our Sequim (WA) home before we return to the desert near Phoenix to continue the RV adventure in January 2012.
