Driving: August 8, 2003

The last day of the cross-country adventure I shared with Ben during the summer of 2003....

Day 63--Friday, August 8, 2003

What can I say about the last day of our trip?  We drove.  And drove.  And drove some more.

I woke up around 8:00, and we stopped to take showers at a truck stop.  We got some McDonald's for breakfast, and we continued driving.  We went through New York, Pennsylvania, and Ohio.  Ben drove the whole way.  Once I woke up, he kept driving and we talked about our trip and about the lives facing us once we got home.

Around 5:30, we arrived at the Steak 'n' Shake on Michigan Road in Indianapolis.  We stopped for some dinner and basked in the familiarity of it all.  After that, back to 680 Mulberry Street.  We spent the rest of the night unpacking the car, cleaning up the house, battling with the jungle that is my yard, and getting settled in.  We went to bed with aching backs and a sense that "real life" was upon us once more.
