Home at last!
Me, Fergie and Yuma
Every year, it gets a little tougher to make the 1560 mile drive home. Made it home just after noon, this morning.
I got a good night's sleep last night, so I was on the road at 7:30. Only had 266 miles, so, this was my shortest drive day. The other three days were 8 hours or more.
Didn't get a picture of going into Missouri, because it was in Kansas City and there was tons of traffic. But I did catch Illinois.
I took a different route this year and took I-40 to hwy 54 out of Tucumcari, NM to hwy 400 near Pratt, KS to Wichita, KS. From there, I connected to I-35 through Kansas City into Missouri. KC was a little hairy, but not too bad. I didn't get lost and made it through staying on I-35 going north toward Iowa. Then I turned onto hwy 36 and went all the way to I-72.
The reason, I enjoyed this route is because hwy 36 is four lane across Missouri and I skip St Louis and all the traffic on I-55, plus, no tolls. There was no traffic either and the road was great.
I won't be blogging unless, I get updates on repairs to the White Lion. It was a different winter this year with the unreliability of the White Lion. I was very happy, I made it through most of the winter and it wasn't till the drive home when the WL quit on me again. Right now, I'm exactly where I was last year. I don't want to go through the uncertainty another winter.
Thanks to everyone that followed along and hopefully, there will be another winter ahead for me, but only time will tell. I'll let everyone know the end result, whatever it is.
Thanks for stopping by.
