"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime"-MARK TWAIN

Status Report

It has been a week since we returned home.  Finally getting accustomed to the heat and humidity, again.
Have most of the grass cut and all the fallen limbs picked up.  We have approximately 50 pine trees in our front yard and they can create quite a mess over time.  They are constantly shedding dead limbs, especially after a rain.
We've also had some severe thunderstorms the last few afternoons. Lightening struck a pine tree just across our fence on the neighbors property.  Too close for comfort. 
Since arriving home, we have been asked numerous times what the favorite memory was of our journey.  It is too hard to pick one.  Hopefully, all future trips will be as good.

The Casita has been cleaned up both inside and out, and all the linens, dry goods, etc, have been restocked and put back in place. Time to start thinking about the next trip. Sue and Moe of The Moho began their journey to Alaska yesterday, and I'll be following their blog very closely. Though it is in the very early planning stage, Alaska is the tentative destination for Summer, 2012.  As for the rest of this year, The Northeast is an option for September, maybe.
We know we will be on the go all the month of October.  The Pine Knot Rally in Texas, the Natchez Balloon Race's, and the Arkansas Balloon Weekend take care of that month's planning.
Bottom line is that the Egg has to roll pretty often.  Can't let those tires get a flat spot on them from sitting too long.
