Now Back to Your Regular Scheduled Reporting:

Now that Mr. and Mrs. Harrington have returned from their Road Trip of a Lifetime, The Harrington Times will return to their regular practice of reporting on the life of the Harrington's including an accountability report on the Harrington's road trip rules and some of their favorites from the road. We thank you for keeping up with the Harrington's and regularly subscribing to The Harrington Times.

Mr. and Mrs. Harrington wanted the Times to report that the previous 40-odd days would not have been possible had it not been for the following:
  • Luella's gift of the America the Beautiful: National Parks and Recreation Pass allowing us to enter over a dozen National Parks free of charge.
  • The Albany County School District #1 for hiring and paying us.
  • Navajo Durango Subaru for fighting the heat and maintaing energy to get us from one destination to the next.
  • for providing an avenue in which to find places of rest and nourishment via our Couchsurfing hosts: Joey, Z-Ray, The Castro Family, David, Jay and Lisa, Ken and Deb, Nick and Diane, and Kate and Ethan.
  • The friends and family who graciously opened up their homes and/or lives to us as we travelled through their areas: Luella, Dave and Liz, Amanda, Seth and Charlotte, Garrett, Lauren, Abram and Mallory, Tom and Phyllis, James, Tom and Patty, Harland and Brenda, and Grandma Barb.
  • In-N-Out Burger for providing two of our best meals.
  • AAA for getting us out of a sticky situation for less hassle than we could have on our own.
  • God for creating the landscapes which make up this country and the many National Parks we visited.
  • Farmers who provided many great produce stands along our travels.
  • The faithful readers of the Harrington Times who kept us encouraged and connected to home as we made our way around the Western U.S.
