I got a really late start (11 a.m.) for the last leg of the journey. My bed was too cozy, the espresso (from my travel pot) too yummy and the conversation too much fun to warrant an early departure. Ah well, what’s the rush?
Outside temp on Sunday: 61 degrees. Gas fill up in Waterloo, Md.: 8.89 gallons @ $3.65. I finished my book on CD somewhere in Connecticut where I also purchased the most expensive gas on the trip. (18.4 gallons @$3.79) The farther north I drove the cloudier it got until I reached the Massachusetts border and turned the windshield wipers on for the first time.
Welcome to Massachusetts? It was 43 degrees with a light drizzle. Thirty-seven degrees colder than Miami Beach and 100% less sunny. I reached home by 7:00 p.m., in time to unload the van before dark. Last leg: 458 miles. Total miles covered: 1,596. Gas: $304.74 Hotel: $44.00. Return trip scheduled: December 08.
It’s been fun. Thanks for your comments. Time to unpack!
