Thursday – May 14, 2015
We departed the Giant City State Park, near Carbondale, Illinois, at 8:55 a.m. We spent a restful night within the serenity of the Shawnee National Forest. We stopped for a quick breakfast at the Cracker Barrel Restaurant in Marion, Illinois and arrived home at 4:35 p.m.
Since departing our home in Illinois on October 10, 2014, we traveled through 14 states, including a visit to Los Algodones, Mexico, logging 15,353 miles during our snowbird adventure.
We are so glad to have a home base to return to. We enjoy spending six to eight months in a warmer climate to escape the bitterly cold winter weather in the Chicago area, but it is always a nice change of pace to return to the comfort of our home environment.
Total miles traveled today: 357
Tomorrow another adventure begins.
