As much as I have thoroughly enjoyed my adventure, it was time to say goodbye to the road. The autumn colours filled the forests along the highway making the drive through New York State very pleasant. Barb and Emma met me at the car rental drop-off at the Buffalo Airport – I was so happy to see their smiling faces. Twenty eight days after arriving in Seattle, 10,300 kms and 16 states later, I am back in Toronto. Home sweet home.
