We were on our way just a little before 9 o'clock this morning. My plans were to stop somewhere just beyond Kansas City, Missouri, but I made it an hour further.
Miss Google had me going up I-35 towards Iowa and then I turned on highway 36 to head across Missouri to Hannibal and then to Springfield and home tomorrow. Should take less than 5 hours, so it will be my shortest day.
The only problem I had today was Yuma trying to climb in my lap. He was afraid of the wind flapping on the roof and the horrible sounds the trucks made with the wind banging my hood and swooshing the roof even louder. He finally gave up and crawled in the back on top of all my luggage and stayed there.
We drove 8 hours again today and made 450 miles. Tomorrow, I have a 288 mile drive to home. Much shorter.
Had my chicken dinner already and now time to lay down and relax before bedtime.
Thanks for stopping by.
Poor Yuma! He just can't stand all that racket from the wind and being buffeted by the semis. He'll be glad to have some peace and quiet. Have a safe trip coming on in tomorrow!ReplyDelete
I popped both of the rubber hood latches of Fran's Jeep driving it on the beach in Mexico awhile back. Fortunately they are easy to find and replace.ReplyDelete
Hannibal as the home of Mark Twain is a fun place to spend a little time.
It'll be good to be home. Continued Safe Travels!
Yuma is going to sleep for a week! Oh wait, you might too!ReplyDelete
Yuma might very well trade that jeep in for Denali!!!ReplyDelete
I have a dog that would love to.ride in my lap. I use a seatbelt clip and harness that keeps her safe and in her seat if I have to stop suddenly and unexpectedly.ReplyDelete
You really have put the miles behind you quickly. Poor Yuma I am guessing both of you will be relieved and happy to be home tomorrow. Continued safe travels. Let us know you made it home safe and sound.ReplyDelete
My pup does that too, so I finally had to get a seatbelt latch for him. It also keeps him from accidentally stepping on the door lock and locking me out!! I know the relief you will feel when you get home. I see a nice long nap in your future!!!ReplyDelete
Good travel times but i agree with everyone that you will both be tired yet happy to be home tomorrow! Dolly will be pleased that her boys are soon arriving too.💕ReplyDelete
Gibbs tries the same thing so he is seatbelted in the back seat. Bill spoils him for really short trips sometimes.
I much prefer U.S. highways like 36 & 54 over interstate travel. Makes the trip much more memorable. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
Hard to imagine Yuma climbing in the back of his own free will. LOL. Safe travels. Hopefully the remainder of the ride is smooth and quiet.ReplyDelete
Beautiful views! Poor Yuma, he'll be glad to get home today!ReplyDelete
Glad that you and Yuma made it home safely and in good time. Enjoyed following your adventures for another year. Do you follow Karen and Steve up in Wisconsin - RVing: The USA is our Big Backyard? They are selling their well maintained motor coach - maybe a replacement for the White Lion? Their coach even has a mural with white lions on the big back window. Hope everything works out for you and Yuma to travel next year. Linda in Buckeye, AZReplyDelete
