Long Road Home

I-40 East

July 21, 2010 (all day)

I entered I-40, my old friend from day one of the trip, in Flagstaff and began to head east. If I had more time, I would have taken another route back. I had originally planned to visit Joshua Tree National Park, then take I-10  and I-30 back. As time ran out, I had  no choice but to take I-40.

I am not sure about the mileage from Flagstaff to Little Rock on I-40, but I think it is in the range of 1,300 miles.

Early in the day, I talked to my father-in-law. He said that he had been reading the blog. He joked that he would like to buy me one of those GPS devices. I have had some bad spots in this trip where I drove in circles. I assured him, however, that I was now on I-40 all the way back to Little Rock. Even I could not get lost at this point.

By the end of Tuesday (July 20), I made it to Santa Rosa NW. After about 12 hours on the road today, I made it home. I will be home for about a week, then I will be making a short trip to Chicago and looping through some of the midwest. After about another week or two at home, I will make a loop through the south.
