Our Trip Home – For Real

So here is an updated version of our itinerary home. Yeah, it doesn’t match the original plan. Unfortunately, we didn't plan well with Temple closings and such so we didn't hit a single temple…sad. We obviously stopped for gas and such…mostly at Sam’s Club and Wal-Mart.  We got an automatic 5 cents off at Sam’s Club and 3 cents off if we paid with a Wal-Mart gift card. Generally both were the cheaper choice across the country.

Good news: it cost almost a quarter of what it cost to get there compared to this trip home! Hurray!

A: Our apartment in Florida
B: A hotel at about 1/4 of the way home
C: A hotel at about 1/2 of the way home
D: A hotel at about 3/4 of the way home
E: My family's house for the night (only 94 miles to go!)
F: Finally in Logan!

We got lost outside Birmingham, Alabama. Brought a whole new meaning to the term “redneck”.

We are glad to be home. It’s been good to see family. We love the mountains and miss how beautiful they are. While our bodies may have been in shock near the beginning, we actually have enjoyed the cold weather so far. Real snow was nice. We saw artificial snow at Disney World but that’s just not quite the same (amazing engineering feat, but that’s another story).
