On The Road…Again (Epilogue)

Somehow I just cannot seem to ‘let go’ of this series; I guess the trip and its fallout made a bigger impact on me than I realized!  When I was collating images for the previous four segments I knew I was missing a lot of great scenery but for the life of me I couldn’t locate said pictures.  I checked the laptop I used on the trip but the data drive was empty; I thought I’d transferred everything to my network via a USB drive.  HAH, then it struck me; check said USB drive, dummy!!  Indeed, still ensconced upon said drive were the images I remembered.  So now I will share some of them with you as an epilogue of sorts to my ‘R-pod Odyssey’  Remember, I did this trip solo and while my canine companions were great company they couldn’t spell me in terms of driving nor could they take still images.  Trying to set up a shot while moving at 50 mph plus (80.5 kph) and accounting for reflections, sun angle, changing depth of field and similar as well as insuring I stayed on the road and didn’t head on an approaching vehicle made still photography much more difficult than video.  As such, some images may be a bit blurry and/or out of focus.  For this I apologize; I hope to have frame grabs from my video available at a later date.  With all this said here’s some additional imagery from my adventure:
