Zoom Zoom to DC 11.7.11

Well, we made it. We’re in DC, actually we’re in Maryland, but close enough! We found a wonderful little campground just 12 miles outside of DC, and 2 miles to the Metro station that is perfect – quiet, very few campers, & has a hot shower (yeah!). It’s called Greenbelt State Park

Our trip East was fine, but quick. We made a quick stop in Springfield, MO to visit with a long, lost cousin of Michael’s – Paula. It’s amazing, all the time I spent in Springfield while I was working, I never knew! We had a wonderful visit – stopping for a bite at the Bass Pro Shops restaurant (this was actually just a convenient stop as we were trying to find something here as well) and enjoyed catching up and learning all about her!

Michael, Paula, & Rene

One fun thing about our road trip has been how many people wave at us on the freeway or talk to us at furl stops. It’s EVERY time! We can’t stop for fuel without either being talked to about Alaska or the Westfalia itself. It boggles my mind when people come up alongside of us & toot their horn or give us a thumbs up on the highway! It’s kinda fun but I guess we’re not blending in very well! Haha…

We’re off on our long list of things to do in DC this week! I can’t wait…
