Leland and I love road trips. Together we have driven to Philadelphia, New Jersey, New Orleans, South Dakota, Wyoming, Texas, West Virginia, and probably a couple other places that I am forgetting right now.
Last weekend we were driving around running errands and we realized that it has been almost two years since our last road trip. That is entirely too long for us. Over the nearly 8 years of our relationship we have taken a road trips approximately every 6 months. So as you can imagine, we are experiencing some road trip withdrawal symptoms. We had planned on going to Austin, Texas after this past Christmas and that fell through for various reasons, and then our ice fishing excursion in Minnesota also fell through due to Leland’s work schedule.
We need a road trip.
For the sake of our sanity.
For the sake of our relationship.
So while we were running our errands and missing our road trips, we opened our handy atlas and started looking for a place to go.
Well, Leland pulled out the atlas and started naming places off to me. I was driving. Driving and looking at the atlas is not a smart combination.
After tossing around a few ideas such as camping in the Grand Canyon and driving west to Seattle, we decided to take an east coast road trip.
First we will head to West Virginia to visit a friend there, then stop in DC, Baltimore, Philly, New York, and then drive up the coast to Maine, stopping in every state along the way.
We have plans to make Intense Guy take us to Pat’s and Geno’s for cheese steaks.
I am expecting The Single Girl and her man and beautiful baby to meet us for dinner.
And any other of you east coasters to let me know where you live and if you want to show us around your town. I am always up for meeting my friends!
The only bad part?
We are waiting until July to take the trip. Since we are planning on taking at least two weeks, we have to do that whole saving money thing. At least we have something to look forward to and plan. I love planning road trips.
p.s. Does anyone live in Delaware? I was looking online for things to do in Delaware and have found nothing. There has to be something to do!
