Wednesday, October 10 The Long Trek Home

We wake up to yet another rather dreary morning, but there is no rain. We are on the road by 9AM and have a 9 hour 590+ mile drive ahead of us according to the GPS. This is the second of the two long driving days we knew we would have on the trip. We take I-20 west out of Meridian. This long straight interstate takes us across the middle of Mississippi and Louisiana and into East Texas. About 2 PM we leave the interstate and go to Tyler where we get a healthy serving of TexMex for our main meal. It tastes so good; especially after not having any for almost 2 months! The rest of the way is through the small towns of East Texas.

We arrive home about 6PM after driving 2,800 miles. It is always so good to get home after a long trip and this time is no exception! It has been a great trip with just a couple of BUMPS! The weather has been the worst we have had on a trip in a long time and, of course, there was the Paris/London nightmare! Even so we have seen lots of interesting things and checked off some more things on our bucket list items.

Thanks for reading!
