We woke up early and had time for a quick breakfast with John and Trish before we had to head to the airport. We weighed our luggage before leaving to make sure we didn't need to rearrange anything, and of course Kyle and I took the opportunity to weigh ourselves as well. Kyle lost an impressive 20 pounds over the course of the trip! I only lost 8, which was annoying, but when I remembered how much chocolate I consumed it seemed like a pretty good deal overall.
We made it to the airport in plenty of time, and enjoyed overpriced sandwiches while we watched Ice Age near our gate. Eventually we boarded and I got a window seat near the wing.
It was amazing to see the country spread out beneath us, and to think that what had taken us two months to cross was passing underneath us in a matter of hours.
When I wasn't taking in the view, I was reading my new books. Meanwhile, Kyle was conversing with his goldfish... I blame the complimentary drink coupons.
Due to the time change, we landed in Pennsylvania in the late evening, and by the time we made the drive to my parent's house all we wanted to do was crawl into bed. Tomorrow we're having a post-trip party with local family and friends, and then we'll head back to Maryland, finally home again after two amazing months on the road.
