Seven months on the road.

Hello from Illinois! One more state 185 miles to go. We left Cuba this morning then stopped for diesel and breakfast so got moving on the road about 10:00. Not as much wind this morning and for a couple of minutes we even got a spot of sunshine.
We are now in Mulberry Grove, IL this was our first stop when we left home and will be our last stop before getting home. Last time we were here was October 1, 2013 – seven months ago!
Only did 157 miles today because we wanted to see the soccer game. What a good game! And another upset.
We’ve had a tail wind since we left Oklahoma City and our gas mileage this last tank was 10.8!!! Wow! Wish it was like that all the time. We’ve started making a list of the things that need to be done to the Alfa before he goes back in storage or takes another trip. One major thing – the inverter – and lots of little things. Should keep Bill busy for a while. The repair to the crack in the windshield has held together – so will leave that alone and hope for the best for trips to come.
Surprised about how cold it is here – traveled with the furnace on most of the day. Hope it warms up when we get home – and doesn’t rain while we’re unloading. And I hope we have hot water in the house.

So next time I write I should be writing from home – until then…


  1. I know you will be so glad to get home !!

  2. Almost there! Hope there is hot water!!
