Geezers, Wyoming and South Dakota - The Trip Home

Day 29 – Portland to Corning, CA

We had a 500 mile drive ahead of us today so we were up early.  We decided to have a full breakfast at the hotel breakfast buffet and skip lunch since we had such a long drive. We were on the road by 8:30 and the day passed quickly as we were listening to a very interesting audio book.  There isn’t much to say about the drive as it was just I-5 all day.  We made good time and arrived in Corning about 4:00; not too bad.  We stayed at The Lodge at Rolling Hills, which is a nice, reasonably priced hotel, which just happens to have a very nice casino, surprise, surprise!  We checked in, and then headed for the casino for a little entertainment for our last night on the road.  We had fun, and got to play for quite a while, but I was just about to lose all of my gambling allowance for the day when I hit a $400 jackpot and went back to the room happy.  Val didn’t have quite as much luck, but she did have a good time.  Time to call it a day; tomorrow is our last day of the trip.

Day 30 – Corning to Home

Not much to say about today, it was us and the trucks traveling down I-5 together.  As part of the cost of our room we got breakfast at the casino buffet so we once again decided to eat a large breakfast and skip lunch.  The day again passed quickly as we listened to the end of our audio book and we were home by 4:30.  It was great to be home as we were both pretty road weary after being gone for a month, but it was also sad to reach the end of another wonderful trip.

  1. I've enjoyed the ride. I feel like I was in the back seat looking out the window the whole way. Except for a gas cap, the Toyota served you well. I'm sure it feels good to be home again.
