Saint Paul, August 15, Friday
Well we are home. It feels good. Trip Six is over. 8500 miles. 50 days. Just five states and four provinces. Great vistas, people, and weather. Probably one week longer than we are likely to do again.
Midas in Dickinson ND installed a new starter. Saw that our front brakes were pretty well gone so they installed new ones. Bonfe’s in St. Paul had inspected the car before we left and said brakes were fine for this trip but might need to be replaced before trip seven. I guess we went down a few more steep mountains that used up our brakes.
In any event, we left Dickinson around 10:30 am and just spent the day driving. Nothing exciting. Minneosta looked good as we crossed the border. Green and rolling hills. We stopped for meals and gas and were home around 9 pm.
Eight days home and we head out for Trip Seven. The Sarahs’ Wedding and U.P. of Michigan.
