We all arrived home safely to Chicago & Minneapolis on Sunday morning (1/27). Our fantastic luck with all our arrangements held with us for this last leg of our journey. Our flights arrived on time, in fact a little early, but winter weather watches were posted for both of us when we got home & snow & ice arrived shortly thereafter! Now, just have to deal with our piles of laundry and mail, adjusting to our time zone again, and our ordinary daily life :( Also have TONS of photos to organize! It was a GREAT trip !!!
NOTE: I will be completing & editing this "journal" over the next couple weeks and will send you notice of an update when it is finished. In the meantime, I did post quite a few photos to Facebook albums, if you have access to that. I did find this journal website not to be the easiest to work with. I'll also work with my maps to see if they can become more accurate.
