Wednesday, March 28, 2018 – Location: Home!
Enjoyed a great night’s sleep in the Missouri rest area. I was surprised when I opened the door to take Yuma for his walk around 7 o’clock. There were at least 25 trucks and one other MH in the parking lot. They were so quiet, I didn’t even realize they were there during the night. Thanks truckers!
As usual when I travel long distances, we get right on the road without breakfast. I did take the time to make a cup of coffee for the road. Overcast and the roads were wet with some fog especially in the beginning as I traveled through the Ozark hills of Missouri. Temperatures in the 40s with highs in the 50s for the day.
Before getting to St. Louis, I stopped for gas and fixed waffles for a brunch. Last stop before I get home. As I closed in on St. Louis, I made a last minute decision to take the I-270 North bypass around the city. It was very busy, but I think it was better than fighting the downtown traffic going directly through the city.
Popped out on I-55 on the northern outskirts of Maryville, Illinois after crossing the Mississippi River.
The rest of the trip was uneventful and I pulled into my driveway at 2:30. Didn’t get to rest long. My grandson, Lane Gibbons is having his 17th birthday dinner at Logan’s Roadhouse tonight. Got to get ready for that.
Here’s the Laning/Gibbons crew present at the dinner.

Another three month winter adventure is over. Had a great time, but I’m glad to be home. I won’t be writing a daily blog anymore, but will continue to follow the blogs of others that write year round. I have appreciated those that followed along with the adventures of Yuma and me. And the comments!
Thank you! See you later.
