What a trip this was. We were so sad to know that our road trip together was coming to an end. We had really had the best time talking, laughing, playing catch phrase and spotting things along the ride. We didn’t rush to get on the road. We had breakfast at the hotel and then packed up and hit the road by about 10am.
I drove the first few hours of the trip so Al could get a few calls made that he needed to follow-up on. It was a dark, gloomy day with rain sprinkles here and there. Made it harder to drive and not want to just take a nap!
We saw a lot of bails of hay as we drove through Nebraska. A really lot. The sights were much of the same from the last day, a lot of farms, cows, birds, open space, hay, corn and fields.
One thing that was quite fascinating to me was how dark black the cows were. They were jet black. They always looked pretty cool in a big field together.
We hit the 2000 mile mark on our new car and when we reached Denver our total mileage for the trip was 2019.5.
Overall our trip was great. We only wished we could have made it longer, stopped in more places and visited more things along the way. We still loved seeing our friends and family along the way and we loved our time in Omaha.
Now, we’re staying with friends while we look for a place to live. Hopefully this weekend something will come through and we’ll be getting settled in no time. Two totally tired faces after driving for 32 hours and 4 days straight!
Hope you’ve enjoyed following us as much as we’ve enjoyed chronicling the trip for you. Thank you for all your well wishes, good thoughts, kind words and prayers. We’re so excited for this new adventure and will continue to keep you updated.
Next week I plan to share some tips on moving cross-country and preparing for road trips…two things I wish I was able to find more info on before our move. Stay tuned, and have a great weekend!
