Thanksgiving on the Road

The beads got packed into their new trailer, the NH house winterized and we hit the road a couple of days later than we had planned on. Dealing with 22" of snow on Halloween weekend didn't help the check list one bit. I actually had to go buy closed shoes to be able to survive. Flip-flops were just not the thing in that much snow.

I think this trip from NH to AZ was one of sunsets.

First evening on the road gave us this fantastic view of the setting sun.

I always like driving through Vermont and seeing the native wildlife.

We laid over in Memphis and spent time with some good friends, cats and parrots. We also took the time to unload and redistribute the loads between the trailer and the car. As this was the first trip with this vehicle combination, we had a few things to sort out.

Instead of interstates, we drove the older US Highways from Hot Springs, Arkansas west. I love looking at the brick downtown buildings in the smaller towns that we drive through. There is so much detail to see if you look up.

Thanksgiving in Wichita Falls, TX was an adventure as finding something open, still serving food, left us a choice of iHop or Denny's.

Finally back in Tombstone AZ, we stopped for just enough pantry supplies to get us through a day and unloaded essentials. The moon, Venus and remains of the sunset lit our way.

Now to put things away and clean up after the spiders that had moved in over the summer. Just how can an unoccupied house dirty itself in six month's time?


  1. Glad you are home safe. We loved having you!!!

  2. I am soooooooooooooo jealous!

    I love all your tote bags! What a hoot!

  3. Glad to hear you made it home safe. You know what they say about Denny's..You only go there when everything else is closed. That applies to road trips!
