Day 37: Closing the circle

Vacaville, CA to New York City

I left my hotel in Vacaville early in the morning. I’m on an airline’s schedule now, not mine.

Drove over three bridges to get to San Francisco – the Carquinez, the Richmond-San Rafael, and the Golden Gate, which was thrilling.

I did it. I drove from NYC to San Francisco.

I’m in San Francisco!

Drove to Ocean Beach. All the times I’ve been to San Francisco I’ve never been there.

Down to SFO and returned Marge (the car). I drove 6,320 miles since NYC. The guy from National Car Rental asked, “Mr. Kooper, was the car OK?” I said “Yes, 6,000 miles of fun.”

It was the trip of a lifetime. I’m still digesting it all. I’m grateful I was able to take it.

I’ll be home when I’m sleeping
I can’t hardly wait

Flew to JFK without incident.

I was welcomed home with hugs and kisses from Mary Beth and Max.

    Thanks, all!

  5. Enjoyed reading your cross-America travel diary. There’s one of the golden RR spikes at the California State Railroad Museum in Old Sacramento, by the way. At least there was 6 years ago when I visited the place.
