Wednesday, May 23, 2018 – Return Flight Home

A final view of the trailer before I headed back to Billings, where I stopped at a couple of RV sales offices to see if they might be able to accept our American Spirit trailer as a consignment. The tentative plan is to hit the road with that trailer, moseying across the country to Montana, make the changeover from the A.S. to the Trail Rider, then head whereever the heck we want after that! Not sure we can pull it off, but that’s what we’re starting to plan out. Both places I went agreed to take it on consignment, we just have to choose which way we want to go. Got back to the airport in plenty of time, after stopping for lunch in a little Mexican restaurant along the way, then was subject to one of the most thorough TSA inspections I’ve ever undergone. Yeah, in Billings, Montana. Go figure. Anyway, after quite a long delay there, I made it to the gate, and not long after, onto my seat on the plane. It was a rough ride for the first half hour or so, but then it settled down after that, and I got to enjoy a nice meal before we landed in Dallas. A last minute gate change had me scrambling to get from one end of the terminal to the other, but finally I was able to relax in a nice window seat. My seat-mate had actually also been on the Billings flight, I discovered, she was actually sitting right behind me. We chatted for a bit, but then I had to excuse myself to get some sleep, my adrenaline was finally petering out. I guess I slept for a little bit, because the next thing I knew we were coming in for the landing in Nashville. I was greeted with heat and humidity, despite arriving a half hour late at 11:00, but managed to make the drive home safely. Hubby had gone to bed after I called to tell him I had landed, but his light was still on when I went to bed. Whew! What a busy few days!
