Greetings from Mississippi! I am very happy to report that we arrived yesterday morning around 9 a.m. (Central time) safely, tired, and very happy to have completed 1,272 miles of travel. We drove all the way from Las Cruces to Little Rock where we stayed for the night before completing the trip. Kudos to the local Chili’s restaurant for the great food and service we received Saturday evening when we went in for dinner.
The kids did very well on the trip as did Maggie (our dog). That was the longest drive Melisa had ever made and she held up really well too. All things considered, it was an uneventful trip that we are very glad to have behind us. We are looking forward to some R&R this week before Melisa and I head over to the Atlanta area this weekend. She is expected in the office June 2 (next Monday).
I received a number of text messages yesterday in response to my brief text informing those who asked to be of our arrival. Thanks to everyone who reached out to us during our trip. Your thoughts and prayers are certainly appreciated. I am typing this message off-line so at this time have not had a chance to download e-mails yet. For those who have sent e-mails, I will respond to them as I am able this week. If it takes a few days, that is likely because we are relaxing and trying to stay away from computers and cell phones (Yes folks…it is possible to do so for a few days!).
I will upload a more detailed post with photos later this week! cs
