    I want to spend a summer on a road trip across

    Currently I'm on a road trip!

    It's been 28 days so far and I'm with my brother. I wouldn't have wanted to spend it with anyone else because we grew up together and we will have this experience forever. You would think a road trip takes lots of planning, but for us it really didn't! We just packed a tent and...

    Oh, how I love road trips!

    I often fantasize of waking up one morning, jumping into my car, and chasing that horizon! I've already been up and down the east coast several times but I so badly wish to explore the rest of this beautiful country! First place on my list: the Grand Canyon! Who's with me?!
