Home At Last

I spoke too soon last night about leaving the rain behind. The storm moved over us overnight and it was raining steadily at Klamath Falls when we were ready to leave this morning. We brought the luggage cart down to the lobby and I brought the van, trailer and all, to the hotel forecourt where we could load in while not being soaked. After that we were on the road again heading homeward.

We stopped in Reno for groceries, then headed home as fast as we could, albeit trying not to exceed the recommended 55 MPH when towing a trailer. Given that the speed limit on I-80 east of Reno is 70 MPH, we were something of a road boulder, although of course I never got out of the right lane.

We were very happy to get home tonight, arriving a bit after 6 PM. Although we unloaded our personal luggage and groceries, we've put off unloading the trailer until tomorrow sometime when I can get free from work.

Lisa and I are both very tired; Lisa probably more than me. I reckon it will take at least the rest of this week to recover from this road trip, given all of the stress that it involved with the family. But recover we will. However, I need to get to bed early, because tomorrow I am back to work.
