Whew! All is well, safe and sound in Maine. My email box is overflowing (250 messages!!!) as is my Bloglines (2014 updated feeds!!!) So please forgive me for the sluggishness of my updates and/or email responses, I’ll be up and running again in no time.
Yup, li’l Miss Hannah has made her first trip across the country, and actually seems better for the wear. She is very fond of us now. She didn’t ever figure out how to back up once she’d reached the end of her leash at the campsites each night, and so provided some of the more humorous moments of the journey. Nothing like a 15-foot nylon lead to take the edge off a haughty feline’s attitude… She and Rudy bonded while riding in the camper together. I caught them snuggling for an afternoon nap more than once.
I’m ashamed to admit there was surprisingly little knitting, but I was looking out windows and studying maps for most of the trip. I also picked up a nasty cold in British Colombia, which left me with a nasal infection for much of the trip. Ah well, there will be plenty of time for wool in the coming days… The Rusted Root sweater visited Mt. Rushmore, and I made Andy take a photo, since I never posted one of it finished.
I took so many photos, and there was so much to see. I should (and probably will) dedicate an album in my Flickr account to the trip and post a link. Here are some of my favorites, and I shall share more soon.
Belive it or not, all of those were taken either directly out the car window, or right off the road. What an amazing continent we live on…
All for now, and I promise to do some catching up very soon!
