Headin' Back South!
This is the last post for this trip. The picture above is the map of everywhere that we camped. To see the whole trip you have to work backward from this most recent entry and go down.

The total mileage was 12,202. The truck ran flawlessly, the camper worked great, Debbie's gourmet meals were non-stop and the scenery was magnificent. The weather was incredible. It only rained a few days and most of the time it was sunny and warm. We did have a few nights when the temps dipped into the thirties, but it rarely got above eighty degrees in the daytime.
After our last post, below, we left Hays River, Northwest Territories and turned the bow of the truck southeast and headed home. We dropped down into Alberta and then east into Saskatchewan and on into Manitoba. From Winnipeg it was straight south into Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, West Virginia, Virginia and finally Raleigh North Carolina. Along the way we saw a reconstructed frontier town in Saskatchewan and stayed in a farm field in Manitoba. We loved watching the land change from the arctic tundra, to the mountains, to the foothills, to the plains and the plains and the plains. The Appalachians were just a bump in the road after this trip. Besides these photos, out biggest souvenir of the trip was the, at least, ten million bugs I just cleaned off of the truck and camper!
We are retired and spend several months each year traveling in our truck camper to places where we can hike, bike and kayak and the rest of the time we do other stuff like yoga, Brazilian Jiujitsu, RC airplanes and helicopters, cooking and reading.
