To answer the obvious question: Yes, we made it home OK. About 6 weeks ago.
Bad blogger, bad!
Drive back was fine. Better than drive going east, since weather was nicer and fewer traffic problems. Our girls were easily the best behaved 1-year-olds EVER for the entire trip.
Actually stopped at same Comfort Suites in Nashville. Same friendly overnight manager. And we picked up the Mrs.’s cellphone charger (forgotten on the first trip).
Will try to be more faithful to the blog on our NEXT Road Trip, to take place in mid-November. New destination: Our ancestral neighborhood in Northeast Philly.
