Gettin' Our Kicks: Chapter 47 – Day 52 Annapolis, MD to Norristown, PA

July 26, 2015

Well… this is it. The last day!

We packed up and headed to our good friends Dave and Mary Ellen’s in Norristown, PA.

Dave and Mary Ellen are kindly putting us up for the last week in the U.S. Dave is also going the extra mile and will sell our two trusty motorcycles.

After an uneventful ride, we arrived at Dave and Mary Ellen’s about 4:30.

Arrival - safe and sound

My GPS showed 10,082 Kilometers or 6,265 miles.

It’s hard to believe that we have been on the road for two months. It really does seem like we just started a few days ago.

We will spend the week catching up with friends in the area, doing a minimal amount of shopping and laundry.

Looking back – 52 days on the road:

We saw so many wonderful sights along the way it is difficult to recount them all.

We endured temperatures up to 105 degrees and humidity ranging from near 0% to over 90%, and fortunately a minimal amount of rain.

No real mechanical breakdowns and no crashes.

Judith and I have been a fantastic team throughout the adventure.

Most important however, this trip has been a tremendous reward for both Judith and me.

It fulfills a dream of a lifetime for Judith and it has allowed me to help her to fulfill that dream. We have met countless wonderful people along the way, made several new friends, reconnected with old friends and my cousin Lorna and I finally reunited after more than 60 years.

As Sam, the proprietor of the El Trovatore Motel in Kingman, AZ, told us very early on in the trip, “It’s all about the people!” He is a wise man.
