Jiggity Jig

Location: Meerkat Meade
Miles: 6885

We woke up this morning in Louisville, KY. Had a lovely brunch at the Waffle House (which, for reasons that are lost in the mists of antiquity, we always call "Waffle Hose"), then got on the road (I-64) a little after noon.

At about 3:00 pm we stopped for a rest break at Super Quik in Grayson, KY.

We crossed over into West Virtucky, and about 4:30 stopped for gas at Speedway in Elkview, WV. We did not see any elk. That's okay, we've seen elk this trip.

In Charleston, WV we picked up I-79 north, and followed that to I-68. Why the circuitous route? Well, we REALLY didn't want to go through Ohio again.

At 7:00 pm we entered Marylandtucky, and stopped for gas in Friendsville.

From there it was a straight shot east on I-68 to I-70, then I-70 to the Baltimore Beltway. We pulled into the driveway here at Meerkat Meade at just a few minutes past 10 pm.

So our 6,885-mile odyssey is over...but tomorrow, when I am more awake, I will update the blog and the map, and then we'll start working on web pages for all our pictures and such.

And if you are one of the Chosen Few, you may be getting a present. Be afraid...be very afraid.

Tonight...sleep.

Home again, Home again! Glad you got home safe and sound! Many miles and many great experiences. What a way to see the country. Wow.

I will be at Ren Fair tomorrow for a bit. But will be interested in seeing more pictures and a website did you say? Looking forward to it. If you need a good photo place for digital pics - Snapfish.com does great work. I send stuff to them all the time. They are fast and inexpensive.
