One thing we've done a lot of this home assignment is TRAVEL! We have TRAVELED to New York, all over Pennsylvania, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Ohio, Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Mississippi, and Florida. On our way to some of those places we also passed through West Virginia, Tennessee, Alabama, and Georgia. John has done some TRAVELING on his own, so he has also gone to Illinois, Michigan, and Indiana.
On this most recent trip, the odometer hit 100,000. We have put over 23,000 miles on the Caravan alone. I imagine we've put nearly that much on the Cavalier. I'd check the odometer on it, but I can't because John has TRAVELED again to Houghton, New York for his 25th class reunion. (Can graduation from college really have been THAT long ago?!?!)
And what do we do while spending hours in the car? Everybody but Daniel enjoys listening to CDs or the radio. We all like reading. I do counted cross-stitch. And we all like to sleep! Getting in a car is like taking a sleeping pill for me. I can't stay awake if I want to...unless I'm driving....but this picture seems to put that statement into question. Am I awake or asleep? John doesn't sleep much, but at least with three drivers he can get a little rest.
John is home and he tells me we've put 16,000 miles on the Cavalier, so that makes a total of 39,000 miles. We're so thankful that both vehicles have run well and we've had no major expenses other than tires.
In a few weeks...August 10 to be exact...we will be making an even longer trip, this time by air and to Niger. More about that later.
