here. We were away from home for seven-and-a-half weeks - that's almost two months! We met new friends, visited family and dear friends along the way, experienced life in other parts of the Western United States and took millions of photos. I probably didn't take millions of photos but there are a lot of them. I will do a series of posts to give you an idea of the scope of our travels and the places we enjoyed along the way.
We left home on Sunday afternoon - my sweetheart, my little dog, Joey, and I. Off we went with our home-away-from-home following behind. Our route was carefully planned and stops along the way had been thoughtfully 'mapped' out on our calendars and our road maps. Our first destination that evening was on the southern end of Oregon a few hours south of home. We spent the night in a beautiful state park along the banks of a beautiful river.
On straight roads. . .
