All I can say is you just have to pick up and do it! It’s really amazing. The people are pretty nice along the way. I think one of our favorite towns is Seligman!

II’m surprised. I was able to actually have time to sit down with my boyfriend last night and start working out the plan to our trip! We even called a few motels to get rates and see what else was out there. We’re amazed and can’t wait to go on the trip. My other half will still need to fix his car, but it’s slowly becoming a reality. We have excel spreadsheets for each state and a list of the cities that we want to go through and things to do in each as well as important info, such as addresses, numbers and cost. (Though a few states have nothing under them, just yet!)
Yesterday, most of the time was spent on figuring out distance and stops, and planning the trip around the International Balloon Festival. I think we’ve planned out 2-ish days, one in Memphis and the other in Tucumcari, NM. We learned about legends (the way Tucumcari was named) and also spoke with a few locals at the motels, where one suggested we go to the “neat-o historical museum.” We looked it up and it is crazy – like a flea market, but a museum. I had trouble stopping, because I wanted to keep discovering new places to see. So, that’s a little down, and a lot more to go. Our goal is to have it planned out by the end of the month! That would be AWESOME!!!
as the time approaches for the BIG trip. I should call that from now on – the BIG trip. I like that. :)
Right now, the plan is to head out towards the end of September, in time to catch the huge hot air balloon festival in NM in the beginning of October.
Excel sheets are being prepared… Hey, we’re on a VERY tight budget and still in the planning phases of the trip. The plan is two casual weeks to LA.
All I wanted to say is that I am excited, scared shitless, and more anxious than I have ever been to make the big move. There are so many things that need to be taken care of before we go… so we’re working around the clock. But IT WILLBE DONE!
