Home at last

After spending a weekend with my parents in NY we finally drove home to Malden today.  The drive was uneventful, the only slight snag was we hoped to dump the tanks in CT at a rest area with a dump but it was closed.  We had a second option for a Cabelas on 84 but the cut off around Hartford on 91 meant we missed the exit. It wasn't important but we hoped to dump once here and then again before the trailer goes back to storage.  We will just have to do a good job with one dump, which is easier now that our flush system has been repaired!

Amazingly it was a cinch to back into the driveway, I guess 4 months of practice backing up the trailer really helps.

Oddly it doesn't feel strange to be home, it just feels like being home.

The trailer covered some 12,500 miles on the trip which is a lot!  I don't even want to think about how much money we spent on gas. We spent 130 nights on the road all of which we spent in the trailer.  I should put together some stats for the trip from my spreadsheet and records.

I would totally take another long trailer trip although I think a little less driving would be better but you know you can't make Alaska any closer.

We've got a lot of cleaning out of the trailer to do and winterizing to do!
