We made it home! This morning we left Eugene, OR and made it back to Seattle around 12:30 and I made it home in Everett at about 2:00. The final drive was uneventful, although we finally did run into some rain between Portland and Olympia. The movers come tomorrow to unload the truck and then my mother-in-law can begin unpacking. I am sure she will be glad to have the rest of her stuff
I must say I did enjoy this adventure. I was able to see parts of the US I have never seen before. And I was able to help someone when they needed it. This has been an overall great experience.
Thank YOU for going on the journey with me.
Today was another good, but long day. We left San Diego around 7 this morning and started the long drive home to Seattle. I’ve never driven this far before and wasn’t sure what to expect. As I mentioned in a previous post, we are driving a 16-foot Penske truck. It is very surprising how well it handles. It is very easy to drive.
With that said, the first couple hours were not fun. Between San Diego and Los Angeles the wind was very strong. Sometimes it felt like the truck wanted to fly away. Once I knew what to expect and how the truck handles, it wasn’t too bad.
We had to stop twice for gas and we stopped for lunch and couple times to take a break. We are now at our first stop in Sacramento. Tomorrow we will drive to Eugene, OR and then on to Seattle on Monday. It’s been a good trip, but I am ready to be home.
