We returned home on July 29th after an enjoyable two day train ride on Amtrak. We arrived in Milwaukee, WI on July 28th and were greeted by Tracy’s mom and dad at the train station. Unfortunately our bicycle did not make the journey from Chicago, IL to Milwaukee, WI so we stayed overnight in Milwaukee at mom and dad’s house. The next day we picked up our bicycle at the train station and headed back to Green Bay.
We finally made it home and our daughter Melissa and two cats were waiting for us – it was a nice welcome home!!
We wanted to thank everyone for following our trip on the blog and Facebook. We also appreciate all the messages and good wishes sent. They kept the loneliness away and also kept us going.
