Drive Home: July 10

After a speedy oil change in Medford, OR, it was 735 miles of the 5-freeway. Obviously the drive was uneventful, except dealing with the horrible smell of the cow "factories" at regular intervals along the freeway. We made it home around midnight. Although we are so sad that our trip has come to an end, we are so happy to be home. We have a new appreciation for our own bed, an easily accessible bathroom, healthy food, and all of the other comforts of home. THANK YOU to everyone who kept track of us and our trip by reading the blog, and thanks especially to our commenters! The only thing that we have left to post is more photos from our trip via Snapfish, which we'll take our time doing, starting with our kayaking adventure and through to the end of the trip.

Drive to Medford, OR: July 9

Two hour wait at the Vancouver border, loads of construction (freeway down to a single lane many times), rush hour traffic, and several broken down cars and accidents blocking lanes: these things sum up our day of driving. We had over 15 hours in the car thanks to these complications, but somehow we made it to Medford around 1:00am. Of course, just before we arrived the "maintenance required" light came on once again - a perfect end to our day.
