The time came to abandon the original plan for this trip entirely since our intended route to get home would have taken us through snowstorms and really cold temps. So we left from Williamsburg on a more southerly route which took us through Durham and Asheville, NC, Knoxville and Nashville, TN, Paducah, KY, St. Louis, and Kansas City. The change added miles to the journey but we prefer not to know how many. Even on the southerly route we frequently drove through snow flurries and along the way we needed to re-winterize the camper to defend it against freezing temps.The best part of the change was that on short notice we were able to have lunch with my brother in Kentucky and on the last day of the trip, we were able to meet Tall Son once again at a Panera in the Kansas City area.
The odometer shows that we covered 4745 miles. Even though we know better, most of the camping felt like it was free because it was paid in advance when we made the reservations. There were no calamities, but we did come home with a cracked windshield on the Flex.
We also came home with lots of ideas for future journeys. It was a great trip!
