Our last day of the road trip. It was agreed that if we did this again, we wouldn't start 2,100 miles away.
The scenic route was pleasant. At this point we were nursing the car along with a check engine light, required maintenance light, broken fuel gauge, low coolant light, engine system control failure light, brake assist service required light, malfunctioning cruise control, and fuel pressure cutting in and out. Come on, Volvo, you can make it!
We made it! Right back to where we started nearly two weeks previously. 7,500+ miles driven. Exhausted, but elated, we set about unpacking so Tom could be returned.
Dad and Taylor continued to get unpacked while I returned the trailer. Adios, Tom, you served us well.
After getting back to Taylor's apartment, we took this final photo before setting off for dinner at Duke's Chowder House across the parking lot. For the first time in two weeks, we took our time, without the specter of a monster drive ahead. It felt good.
