Left our friends’ home with tears in our eyes. About a mile down the road, I had to fight back the sobs. I felt bad about leaving. Best friends aren’t supposed to be so dang far apart.
Nearly 500 miles later we arrived in Salina, Kansas. And yes, I know I broke my 300 mile per day rule. It’s just that we wanted to get home as quickly as possible. I guess we were homesick.
And to make the trip even faster, we decided to stay in a motel. But right after we checked in, a fire broke out in an AC unit down the hall. Fire trucks were everywhere. Needless to say, this made us uncomfortable, so we checked out and then checked into a different motel.
Slept like babies that night.
