Road Trip Wishes. And Gasoline Dreams.

A good friend of mine is planning a road trip this summer. Full scale, across the country, taking their time.... just hearing a tiny bit about it makes me want to get up and do the same. Not that I'm not happy here, but it would be just that much more amazing to pack up the car, and start driving. All summer, top down, constantly flipping through the cd case, trying to find the best mix, eating only fresh fruit from road side stands and ice cream.

We would see everything. World's largest frying pan (Brandon, IA) to the Creation Museum (Kentucky) to the Execution museum (Texas) to VooDoo Doughnuts (Portland, Oregon). Maybe some regular places in there too. Mormon Central in Utah (less than normal, but still), Vegas, Alcatraz, Nashville, Hershey Pennsylvania!

Fourth of July in Boston, a weekend eating lobster on Cape Cod. Blueberry picking in Maine! Escaping from hillbillys in Carolina. Rodeo in Texas. Area 51, alien hunting in Roswell, NM.

I am just salivating at the thought of getting to do all this stuff. All with the sun on my back and the wind in my hair.

Let's just go on vacation. The whole nation. For one month. Let's see what happens. Who's with me?

We've been back for almost a month and a half now, I've just been super slow in posting the events of the trip that people wanted to hear about....

If you look at other entries, you can see that I have been gallavanting around CF.

What are you confused about?

I think you should add Kansas to your list. We have the largest hand-dug well (Greensburg), the largest prairie dog, the largest ball of twine. We're all about large things here.

I'm totally with you on the road trip for a month thing. It would be nice to get away.
