More Details From the Road

 From Michigan we either drove through or stayed in the following states:

Ohio

Kentucky

Tennessee- Nashville, Memphis

Arkansas- Hot Springs,

Texas

New Mexico- Carlsbad, White Sands

Arizona- Tucson, Sabino Canyon 

California- Palm Springs, Joshua Tree, Mojave Desert

Nevada- Las Vegas

Utah- Springdale, Zion National Park, Moab, Arches National Park

Colorado

Nebraska- Ogallala

Iowa- Davenport

Illinois

Indiana  

We travel through sixteen states, including our own, in twenty-four days.  Not enough time but we were ready to come home.  There was less to see and do in the colder states.  We canceled a stop in Chicago due to everything being closed and just drove home.

I do not mind being back to work.  I see it as a necessary evil.  At least we are still working from home for now.  Not sure how much longer that will last.  

Firefly managed to total the Saturn two days after our return.  She rear ended another vehicle.  I am not sure what to do with her.  She is like a bad penny.  As of now she is mopping around depressed because she doesn't have a car.  It will take years for this one to learn.

  1. Broom her? Do you really need the stress? I myself have begun the great purge this year of anything that adds to my plate in an unhealthy or monetary fashion.

    1. Not as sorry as she is, mostly for herself though.

  3. Maybe its time as Rothwilder suggest... it could be a time for all of Us to look inward.... then realize a purge is necessary....

    1. Just have enabled too many leeches over the years. There is a personal cost for holding others up. As I get older, it becomes more taxing and not as rewarding.

    2. It is definitely time to make her feel some of her consequences and reduce the costs on me.

    Oh, and sometimes they never do... learn.

    1. I did enjoy the trip. Some never do learn. Even those that do seem to take an agonizingly long time.

  5. Well, that's a proper trip! Would love to do that!

    Cars can be mended - so can troubles ;)
