I will be doing some post-dated posts on the activities of the last few days in Alaska, but for now, just letting everyone know I am safely home.
After getting stranded in Weyburn, SK by my 3rd set of violent T-storms, I decided to push for home at 4am on Tuesday morning. I was trying to time it so that I made it through Chicago about midnight or later to miss the traffic – WRONG!!!!
I forgot that it was the 4th of July and hit Chicago about midnight – 4-5 lanes of traffic all night long. I had left Weyburn about 4am, so had been on the bike for nearly 22 hrs when I hit this mess. I was not a happy camper to say the least. Man, and I thought Philadelphia traffic and drivers were bad! Then there were the construction delays… more later.
Anyway, was finally on the PA turnpike about 2 pm on Thursday cruising about 80 mph, when I caught sight of a couple of crazy people waving and jumping around on the side of the road! It was my sister, Georgia and her partner Ron with their own version of “Welcome Home.” What a surprise! I have to admit being fairly delirious by this time after almost 34 hrs of straight driving, but a welcome sight! Thanks Guys!
Writing this from home and will update the blog later this week-end so check back. Epic journey to say the least.
