Home Again

Just a quick post, we made it home from sunny (not) South Carolina, where Columbia had its first White Christmas since they started keeping records in the 1880s.  If we keep this up, they won't let us back in the state to visit the kids...

Long ride, the roads were clear and wet, but it kept on snowing.  Hopefully it will stay down South.

SIL Brian had a great idea, he went online and checked all the traffic cameras along the Rt. 95 corridor and the inland route, Rt. 77 to Rt. 81, which as I said before, was clear.  Rt. 95, that was not the way to go, the inland route (77 to 81) we took up through the Shenandoah Valley worked very well.  We may use that route all the time now.  Only about a five mile difference either way.

The only issue we had was Zoe, the Wonder Dog was pretty sick, making for a number of emergency stops.  She is always coming up with something new for our travel adventures.

Anyway, a great time, worth traveling every mile (all 500 of them, each way!).  Looking forward to the day we won't have to rush anywhere.

Thanks for visiting and feel free to leave a comment.


  1. I wish for you less rushing in 2011. Glad you're home all safe and sound after a good visit. What weather they are having in the southeast! My family is back there.

  2. Glad you made it safely! Not as much snow here as they predicted earlier, it's mostly in NJ & Philly. The webcam is a good idea. I check the ones along I81 before I leave for work or back home again.

  5. 500 miles each way...That's almost as far as your daily work commute! 2011 will be a great year!
