How on Earth we managed to drive more than 1,700 miles in 2 days, we’ll never know!
We left Denver late-afternoon on Friday, November 4th. In 24 hours we drove more than 1,000 miles, and it was Mama behind the wheel for more than 90% of that, giving Papa a break and a chance to sleep, seeing how he’d worked days and nights that week and would be doing it again the following week.
It was best that we put so many miles behind us in one day though. It allowed us to have a little wiggle room, in the event we ran into any issues along the way.
The drive was beautiful, though. We saw antelope and deer, and the desert hills through Nebraska were unlike anything we’ve ever seen.
On Saturday we wasted no time, and late Sunday we pulled into our destination in Virginia: Bull Run Regional Park.
Again, we have no idea how we pulled it off, but we did. In that short time we drove through Wyoming, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Maryland.
We had no problems at all. We were very fortunate!
And the boys? They were just looking forward to the next park!
