When we came back here in the mainland from South Korea (2009), our car was shipped. I took a few weeks before it arrived to the landing destination, Maryland. Hubby and I flew from Pittsburgh to Maryland then we picked up the car and drove it back.
We did the same thing when we first arrived here from Guam (2005). The only difference is that we rented a car and drove it to Virginia which was a bad idea especially that I was few weeks away from my due date. We also did not have a GPS so we've lost our way a couple of times.
We learned our lesson so we flew the next time and then we brought a GPS so we never got lost.
It was a good journey for both of us, kinda like a date without the kids lol. While in Maryland, we visited his Aunt whom he have never seen for years. They were surprised because my husband was still a kid when he last seen his relatives. Driving from State to State is fun especially when you are with your love one.
