Dave & Dot's 25th Anniverary Tour

Week 5 - Orlando, FL to Sacramento, CA

Saturday, November 3rd - I Really Can't Believe It's Actually Over . . .

We awoke on our last day of vacation, did our final packing, had breakfast in the buffet and headed for WDW's Magic Kingdom by 9:00am.  We wanted to try to see and ride those attractions we missed a month ago on Oct 6. We managed to do quite well and after doing a little last minute shopping (Oh God, where are we going to put all this stuff!) we left WDW an headed for the airport around 1:00pm for a 3pm flight. We arrived with no delays, checked our bags at the curb, and turned in the SUV we had driven for 5 weeks and nearly 6000 miles. Got a really nice surprise when I checked it in as National Car Rental only charged me $136 per week rather than the $190 per week I was quoted. A savings of nearly $300 !!!!

The flight home was rather uneventful . . . at least as I saw it. Dot, however, saw things much differently as we hit a pocket of bumpiness that lasted for nearly an hour and she was in tears for fear that we were going to end it all on our way home. But we arrived safely at 9:00pm and were escorted home by our youngest son Garrett & his wife Vanessa.

In all, it was the best trip ever. So many memories, new discoveries, great food, beautiful scenery & new family and friends. One we will remember for a lifetime . . .

So what do we have planned for our 30th "Anniverary"? Well when I asked Dot that question during our trip she had no idea. "I suppose you already have that planned too?" she questioned. "why, yes. I have thought about it . . . How about 6 weeks in

    "You're absolutely crazy", she said.
