Writing Prompt: Road Tripping

11 Aug

“‘Tis the season for road trips — if time and money were out of the equation, what car-based adventure would you go on? (If you don’t or can’t drive, any land-based journey counts.)

Bonus (optional): show us your itinerary by embedding a Google Map into your post!”

Tammy and I both have crazy busy lives yet yearn to travel. One of the first trips we have talked about is a car trip from Oregon/Washington all the way to Arizona so that we could go to one of the largest gem and bead shows in the country. This trip is over 1400 miles one way without taking any side trips or any real stops, so we might as well do a full crazy excursion! 

As you can see the fastest most direct route would be doing most of our driving through California. Instead the adventures can include several other states and since this is a dream road trip without money or time limitations, why not dream a bit bigger than the fastest most direct route? There are tons of things that we both want to do as we pass through! From hikes, to places that hit our must try eateries, and a few off the “norm” touristy things like hitting a seldom heard of or known mining town.

Over the next several weeks (each Monday) I will walk you through the potentials of this dream road trip. Check back often as we touch on Crater Lake Oregon after 112 miles.
