Back home in our Roost


April 18-19

Saturday morning we were up with the rooster and on the road by 8 am for a long day of driving ahead. The weather cooperated with bright sunny skies and temps most of the day in the 70’s. We arrived in Grove City PA (70  miles south of Erie PA) shortly after 5 pm for our final night in the RV – in a Walmart parking lot! How romantic, eh.

Today we drove 500 miles (800 km) which was our longest driving day of the entire trip. This would make our final leg home on Sunday about 230 miles. We left Grove City by 7:30am and after a few stops for gas, Canada Customs and the Fort Erie municipal sewage dump, we arrived at Bryn’s house before 1:30 pm. We had a great reunion with Matt, Bryn, Melissa and Emily for the afternoon. Oh yes, all the dogs and cat too!

As we were pretty tired we had an early dinner of pizza, wings and caesar salad and were back at home in Burlington by around 5.

Trip Stats:

Distance travelled – 11,400 miles (18,200 kms)

4 Provinces – 17 States

68 – Campgrounds, RV Parks, Friends yards, Walmarts and truck stops

6,056 litres of gas (thank goodness gas prices went way down)

8.5 miles per gallon(imperial)

This adventure has now ended, but our “journey” together continues on!

Thanks for tuning in. We have enjoyed sharing our travels and hundreds of pictures with you over the past almost 7 months.

Home – safe and sound! Thank you God for watching over our safe travels.

Take care,

Rob and Kathy
