The time has come to make our way home. Over the next week we will pass through Illinois and Kentucky, eventually settling back into our life in Tennessee. By the time we make it home, we will have traveled over 10,000 miles and visited 19 states. But before closing the book on this adventure, I’d like to document some of the “bests” we encountered along the way that for one reason or another I’ve failed to highlight.
Best campsite of the trip was our roomy, shady site at the state park in Camden, ME.
Best meal was at the lodge in Allegheny State Park, in NY, where we had Beef on Weck; a specialty sandwich, consisting of mounds of rare roast beef on a Kümmelweck Kaiser roll.
Best bar for shooting darts; Shute’s Saloon in Calumet, MI.
Best tacky tourist attraction; World’s Largest Indian in Ironwood, MI.
The list could go on and on, but I’ll sign off for now, continually reminding myself to be thankful and grateful for so many amazing memories and experiences.
