On Friday, I thought that our trip to CO to see our granddaughters and their mommy and daddy for Thanksgiving was off, since my husband had been diagnosed with pneumonia and was told he was not allowed to travel by airplane. Driving is allowed, though, so we decided to go through with our original plans for a football weekend out at Notre Dame. So Friday morning as we were driving along, about two hours into our trip, we got to talking...and we decided that since we were already heading westward anyway...and after the 16 hours it took to get to South Bend it would only take another 18 to get out to our son's house in Colorado Springs...why not just keep going?
SO...we're on a road trip to CO!!! Call us Lloyd and Harry.
After we left South Bend yesterday, we went about 6 hours and then stopped for the night in Des Moines, leaving us about 12 more hours on the road today. The weather is gorgeous--sunny and mild--so with any luck, we'll be pulling into our son's driveway not long after dinnertime tonight.
Today, we're trading in our Nissan for a moped, and then look out CO, here we come!
