End Of The Trail
We arrived safely back home in the late afternoon of Easter Sunday, April 5. If you have followed along, you will know that we have seen the good, the bad and the ugly, but it was a great adventure that covered 13139 kilometres (8164 miles) over 105 days, averaging 21 miles per gallon, which we are pretty happy with. As with all homecomings, this one is bittersweet; while we met some wonderful people, many of whom we hope to remain in contact with, and had some unforgettable experiences, it is certainly good to be home, to connect again with family and friends and to see the grandchildren.
What’s next? For the rest of this year, just some camping around the Island, including another sojourn to Chemainus with the grand-daughters. Next January/February we will be flying down to Santiago Chile to watch Matt’s PhD defence and take a cruise around the Horn, so Lucy will get a break. Beyond that, while we are mulling over some ideas, nothing firm will be decided for a while.
Thanks again for coming along with us (in the virtual world at least); hope it was a good ride. Hasta la vista!
