A Hiatus Away From Nomadic Life
Note: Playing catch up on the blog, as usual. This is from mid-May through mid-July time frame. Our trek back to Indiana was a quick one. We were back in Indiana after leaving Arkansas 8 days earlier. For us slow travelers it was a change of pace, only staying put 1-4 days at each place.…
