Tomorrow I hop on the highway again! At least 4 states… I am excited! I am getting everything in place. Thermal coffee mug (that plugs into the lighter jack :P) ~ CHECK! CDs right where I can reach them without any hassle whatsoever ~ CHECK! My great big blocks-out-all-glare-out-there shades on the dash ~ CHECK! Staple road-trip snacks in the glovebox ~ CHECK! It all comes down to java (I am coffee driven, all the way!), good tunes, a pair of primo glasses, & treats for taking the undiscovered streets. :) 6 years ago
I have just landed (for a little while) from a fun road-trip: South of the Border, Savannah, Tybee Island, Jacksonville, Melbourne, Delray Beach, & (the final stop) my hometown, Boca Raton. It was wonderful, as was the food, which is half the joy of taking these journeys. :) My route will be entirely different when leaving—different cities with different settings. I haven’t mapped the route yet, but I am sure to post about it when I land again… 6 years ago
I just got back from a fantabulous roadtrip! I went through northern Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Indiana and then back again. I even stopped to take “the last train to Clarksville”. :> I will be starting another one on Saturday—only home for a week. Then the holidays will be upon us and I will be on another odyssey come late November and then again in December. You know, don’t knock minivans! They are a luxury roadtrip mobile. 7 years ago
Well, as of yesterday my Mom is officially retired! I am elated for her and she has so many adventures ahead of her, but I am also elated for myself. This means that I will be seeing her so much more often, AND we will be able to take road trips together! Now that I have a minivan (yes, I know, I own a minivan…), it will not only be easier to road trip, but it will be an utter joyride! I don’t have any idea where we will go first, but my Mom is one adventuresome lady, so I know she’ll be up for anything. She’s going to visit me for the ENTIRE month of August, so I am thinking about talking her into our first one during that time. :> 8 years ago
This started with a deal. We help you with something, you help us with something. I did not broker the deal, I was suppose to cash in.
The deal was that I become a Regional Director for what is now the Pacific Region in return for my state supporting a candidate for a more senior Young Democrat position.
I arrived in SeaTac. Met up with people in Olympia and went on a road trip that went to Portland then due east on the Interstate(I-80?). We went to Idaho Falls for a brief meeting after spending the night over in Great Falls, Idaho and then spending the night in Spokane. We stopped at a park where I had a postcard perfect view of Mount Rainier.
The best part was the fun and cameraderie of my two traveling companions and our good humor. 8 years ago
