Home, at last, the real homecoming
I finally rolled into home from the Homecoming trip this morning about 10. After the Homecoming ended, I met my wife at her sister's in Milan, Michigan and we spent a week in the Michigan Upper Penninsula and then a day and a half in Door County, WI on the way south.
I had hoped to get home last evening after Austin work traffic died down, but we came through torrential rain yesterday around Sherman, TX and Dallas was much worse than usual and I was tired, so I tied up in a friend's guest spot at NTAC (North Texas Airstream Community) last night.
When we passed through the squall line between Dennison and Sherman, the temperature dropped from 94 to 71 with a mile. It was impossible to drive, so we waited out the worst of the storm in a WalMart parking lot. I'm thankful for rain sensing Fantastic Fans; there wasn't a wet spot in the trailer when we could finally get out and check.
The Homecoming was well worth my trip. It is to be an annual event, but I'll miss it next year although I seem to have convinced the wife to go the following year.
I haven't added up all the miles and nights yet, but I was on the road for just under a month. Longest day of driving was 588 miles.
