We Have Landed!

Catskill, NY (High 75, Low 58)


Yesterday we got up bright and early to make one last push for our final destination. We knew we had a long day ahead of us by our standards so we were on the road right on time at 8 am. It was cloudy as we got underway but happily there was little to no wind.



It was really nice yesterday with highs in the 70s, but the effects of the cold weather are still visible, as the grass has not started to green up yet. The only white stuff visible was on the rocks by the side of the road.



After being away for seven months, I was enjoying the upstate NY views with fresh eyes.






By mid-afternoon we were headed into the Catskill region.




Our winter travels have now officially come to an end! I put a map showing where we’ve been since we left in early Sept. ‘13 on the sidebar.




I checked out some of our travel statistics this morning. We traveled a total of 8,765 miles since leaving Catskill last year. Of that, 4,750 miles were towing miles, leaving 3,985 in just driving miles. We spent $2,736.97 on diesel fuel.


It was a great winter, but now I am looking forward to a few months of familiar sights, and spending time with friends and family. Smile


  1. Like Dorothy said. 'There's no place like home'

  2. Glad you made it safely, 2 more weeks for us. Enjoy your family and friend time.

  4. We enjoyed following your winter trip. Have a great spring and summer.

  5. You'll "home" for the summer. Then there's that running thing :-)

  6. Your Heartland is home. Isn't it nice to be able to change neighborhoods fem time to time?
