Over the course of nearly 6 weeks we traveled through PA, OH, KY, TN, AL, GA, FL, SC, NC, VA, NJ, NY, CT, MA, and back to NH. (Unfortunately, Grenville neglected to set the trip odometer, so doesn't know the total mileage traveled.)
This year, we visited only one state capital (KY) as compared to five visited on last year's NH to OR excursion. On this trip, among other things, we visited 3 historical forts, an underground waterfall, a 1,200 foot underground cave, an incline railway, the largest military museum, a vintage car dealership, the second operating U.S. cyclorama, a historic train station, an icon from a U.S. World's Fair, museums, and many small towns.
The best part of this year's road trip was meeting up with family, including 4 cousins and a niece in 5 different states, some of whom we hadn't seen in a few years to a few decades.
We caught up with long-time friends including Grenville's former Navy buddy, neighbors, co-workers and neighbors from NJ and VA, where we lived and worked. We reunited with blogger friends once again and enjoyed a first-time meeting with a new blogger friend.
I had fun posting about sites seen and foods sampled along our travel route. As always, your comments and feedback were greatly appreciated. It was nice to have "passengers" along for the ride — everyone was so quiet.
As much fun as we had on our trip, we're glad to be home, at least until the next one. Until then, we have several upcoming family events here in New England to enjoy.
How has your summer been going?
