Got home about 11:40AM Sunday. No problems crossing the border. Even better I did declare my extra wine and was allowed to keep it. But it took about an hour to unhook, clear off the cement stanchions that we have used along with a chain to block off our driveway. Then the girls could not wait a moment longer. So we left the RV parked on the road and let them into the yard. They loved it and ran and chased each other and kept coming back to kiss us. They ran all through the house as well. Finally we left them inside ( not very warm out at all – I had a fleece and a Northern Face windbreaker on ) and we got the RV parked.
Then the unloading began. So much back and forth. We worked Monday and today as well. So now the RV is empty as well as the basement and the Jeep. I have done 7 loads of laundry, 4 for the RV linens and towels and 3 for all the dog blankets. Before I continue with the next and 6 – 7 loads of our clothing Colin will vacuum out all the dog hair in the washer and in the dryer.
Door to door we covered 5092miles/8195kms. Some days seemed longer than others. We had a great sleep in the very quiet Omak Walmart. By only driving 138 miles that last day we were able to have plenty of time to park before we started the unloading. The highest we paid for diesel was 5.57 USD per US gallon on October 19, 2022 and the lowest we paid was $3.79USD per gallon in Idaho. Our last fill up was Sunday, April 9th and the price was $4.77 per gallon as the very same station that we first filled up on, October 19th, the day we crossed into the US @ 5.57US.
Overall it was a good drive from Las Vegas to home. The hills in Oregon were so very green. We did have to stop in Pendleton to get the RV engine air compressor belt tightened. They had put in a new one before we left in October and it had stretched and was in need of tightening. The Kennworth/Cummins shop said they were busy for the next few days but Colin asked if they could at least look at the engine. They did and fixed the problem and said no charge. Colin handed the fellow a twenty. We were very lucky to get this service done on Saturday of the Easter long weekend.
So happy to be home but I think I like the bed and duvet in the RV better. And yes the kids have been in our bed since we left Vegas. Hopefully tonight they will be in their crate. They both have been using it for naps.
