I’ve been a little sparse on the posts, gentle reader, and I’d like to apologize. My only excuse is that we were on vacation. I wanted to let you know before we left, but the husband is convinced that out of the dozens of people who read my blog, one is an obsessed stalker who is just waiting for the opportunity to break into our house and boil a rabbit on the stove.
Or something like that. Hence, all the silence.
But the good news is that now I’m back and I can tell you all about our trip. Here are the statistics:
Distance traveled: 3556 miles.
States driven through: 7.
National parks visited: 3 (Badlands, Yellowstone, and Grand Teton.)
National monuments or historic sites we saw: 3 (Mount Rushmore, the Minute Man Missile facility, and Devil’s Tower.)
National forests visited: 5 or 6.
Length of our trip: 12 days.
Number of nights spent sleeping in a tent: 7.
Number of nights it rained on us: 3.
Total of pictures taken: 311 and that was after an exhaustive, ruthless pruning process.
Amount of Smores and low-sodium Pringles consumed: I’m too embarrassed to say.
All in all, it was a lovely trip filled with memories, laughs, and lots of family. In fact, this may have possibly been our best vacation ever.
At least until next year.
