We made our final push to Wisconsin after spending two weeks in Moab, Utah. We left Moab at noon after the final meet and greet event was over and arrived back in Wisconsin on May 11, 2023. Due to leaving this late in the day, it took us an extra night to get back to Wisconsin, staying at Harvest Hosts for three nights. The arrival in Wisconsin, as seems to be usual now, was celebrated with a frosty mug of root beer at A&W in Baldwin, Wisconsin.
Night 1, Colorado
Our first night was only a couple of hours from Moab, because of the late departure from the off-roading event. It is harder to find a location in Colorado because the interstate is tucked into the mountains. Fortunately, there was a Harvest Host location well placed for our first night.
Night 2, Nebraska
Day two of travel was all about making miles, but also checking off a location that is not easy to get to without commitment. After a full day of traveling, we finally made it with minutes to spare, but unfortunately, train operations were mostly done for the day.
Night 3, Iowa
The third day is always a much rougher travel day than the previous. Both the cats and the humans are just done with it all. We would have rather pushed to Wisconsin but that would not have been safe. We arrived in the Des Moines area around 5 PM and met up with Ceci and Allie who drove down to kidnap Oma!
“Home is where you park it!” Technically, our domicile is in Bushnell, Florida, but our “home base” is back in Wisconsin with family.
