Well the alarm goes off and eventually I get up and break camp and get on the road by 4:30 am. At about 7am I stop at McD’s for breakfast and next door for gas and off I go again. At about 11am I start to get tired, mmm I wonder why? I pull over at a rest area and try to take a small nap. Well after 5 or so minutes I become angered by the fact that the blower motor to the van has rarely worked since I left for vacation and now it is hot outside. I begin to pound on the dash and it begins to come apart. I push the buttons back into the dash and now my adrenaline is up and I am ready to drive again, so much for a nap. I am about an hour from home and there is a traffic jam near Olathe, KS, dam foiled again I say. Up comes the laptop screen and I check to see when I can get off the highway and take side streets home. Finally I find one and off the highway I go and now the back roads are my best friends. Well I am finally home and surprise Beth and she is overwhelmed to finally see me in person and not on a computer screen. 5164 miles have been covered. Trip totals and pics to come soon watch link.
