    Alone on a road trip.

    I want to put gas in my car drive anywhere. I want to drive first to California. Visit the beach let the sand go between my toes. See the waves splash. The sound of birds seeing them fly towards the horizon. Get lost meeting a place accidentally that I'll love. See the Rocky...

    I love spontaneous road trips.

    I think I'm gonna pack up the kids tomorrow and just drive north until I find snow. There has to be some left after all the crazy weather this season. We have a week off from school. I'm ready to enjoy it! :-)

    I have been on road trips,

    three times. The first was from the state where I live to Missouri to visit relatives. I remember I was a little unsure of myself, thinking "If something goes wrong, I will be in big trouble." Things went well, though. My second trip was out to Colorado and back. The third...

    The last time that my husband

    and I went on a road trip was from Las Vegas to Phoenix. The road trip was just for a weekend. The longest road trip that we took was from Las Vegas to San Fransico. We were there for a week. We don't know where and when our next road trip will be.

    Most recently we road-tripped to Morro Bay for a car show (approx. three hour drive). Just for the day. I would've liked that we stay overnight, but Patrica plays softball and she had two scheduled games back to back that same Saturday in the evening. So we departed early and...

    Road trips are so much fun. I never get car sick, so that's a plus, lol. It's just so cool to be able to go all over and look out the window and see anything from horses and cows in fields to huge skyscrapers. It's also cool to go through some small towns and see some funny signs...

    The Road

    What a great idea. If only I could head NW across the Rockies, hit Yellowstone, and cruise the Pacific NW. I love the road. I miss the road. Perhaps I should get a little fix, with a ride in the countryside this afternoon.
