We made it. The adventure has started, at last.

Yesterday was a long, busy day, but by dinner time we had managed to get everything loaded into the car (the trunk is very full!) and all the last minute house details finished. Dinner was spagetti and meatballs - the last meal from the freezer. The fridge has never been emptier, or cleaner. Part of me wanted to scrub and polish the house from top to bottom, but really, why bother - the dust bunnies are just going to move in during the three months we're gone anyway. So just did a quick once over, and a really good organizational tidy up, so it will look good when we get home (and for the visiting bunnies).

We were on the road by 7:45 this morning - 15 minutes ahead of schedule - and the day went amazingly well. We made it across the border with no problems - first step handled. Then off we went to explore the exciting landscape of North and South Dakota - flat, flat and flatter - no wait, a hill!! Actually, it was really quite pretty, and it was fun watching the snow gradually disappear. By the way, I have never seen as many cows.

We pulled into Yankton, South Dakota at 4:30 and checked into the Super 8 - bonus, free internet! Dinner was an ordered in pizza, now it's a bit of TV and bed! We're all beat - even the dog. Tomorrow is a new day, a day that brings us one step closer to Mexico. Liberal, Kansas, here we come.
