Saturday, Oct 11, 2014 – Safely Home Again

I loved the outline of my car and trailer with the frost still on the grass.

I left the RV park about 9:30am to drive the one mile into Amana.  I stopped at the Lily Pond to take some pictures of ducks.  It was a very peaceful sight.

Here are some photos along the streets of Amana.

I left Amana about noon and continued towards home.  Below is another peaceful sight of rolling Iowa cornfields and a farmer harvesting his crop.

I arrived home about 7:30pm or so.  I got to watch the sun set in the last part of my drive.  I thought that was very appropriate, the sun setting as I finish out my 15 day trip.  I drove 2788 miles over the 15 days.  I was towing the trailer all but about 400 miles.

I added the three states I stayed in to my map. That makes 24 states so far in the past 28 months.  Friday night was my 140th night I have slept in the EggCamper.   I think I have towed the trailer about 18,500 miles during that time.  I have driven more miles than that on the trips but I am trying to keep track of the number of miles towing as well.

Thanks for following along!  I will be winterizing the EggCamper and won’t be taking any more trips until next year.  I will enjoy traveling from my recliner as I research for next year’s trips.

  1. Glad you made it home safely. We got home late on Wednesday. It was nice to meet you and follow your blog and I look forward to following you next year. You will have to give the Duluth and the north Superior shore a chance again in warmer weather. Congratulations on adding three more states to your map.

  2. Glad to hear you made it home okay. I visited Amana many years ago, enjoyed seeing that area. I was visiting a friend that lived in Decorah, Iowa, at the time. We did some touring.
