Route 2 - Day 19 - Sunday, July 11, 2004

 Today's Narrative 

Today is the final drive towards home. The trip has been wonderful and I would do it again in a heartbeat, but it will sure be nice to be home again.

We got started later than I wanted. Damn Navigator, see the pix below.

About 10 miles outside of Augusta, GA the traffic on I20 came to a standstill. Listening to the truckers on the CB, a motorcycle policeman had been involved in an accident. A hospital helicopter had come and picked him up. After a delay of about 30 minutes we finally drove past the accident scene. The motorcycle was way off the road to the right in a ditch. It was so mangled I could barely tell what it was. There was a Jeep Cherokee there also with lots of damage to the left front. Say a prayer for the LEO.

Nice to be home :)

There will be one more page. It is a summary of the trip and a request for input on this site. Be sure to visit it here.

Today we traveled from Chattanooga, TN to Aiken County, SC.

The Navigator refused to get up this morning. By the time I dragged him out of the bed, we were 15 minutes late getting started! Welcome to GA! Only one more state (SC) to go. These wildflowers were right next to the Welcome to GA sign. I couldn't resist :) The Final Destination. Home Sweet Home!
