the unreasonable dreamer in me is always thinking about the next exciting trip we can take

If I didn't have Kiffy to bring me back down to earth and remind me that my big dreams are a little too excessive for our penniless state, I'd probably be sleeping under a freeway overpass somewhere in Los Angeles.

BUT, this time we've come to an agreement that in T minus 365 days we'll embark on the road trip of our lives!! The planning is officially underway.

The plan is to take one month next summer and drive cross-country so we can explore the good ole' USA.

We figure it's about 3,500 miles, give or take a few, from California to the East coast. We're not quite sure of the routes we'll take yet. But I do know that I plan on eating fried green tomatoes, stopping in as many podunk towns as possible, and seeing Coney Island.

Any suggestions of must-sees we shouldn't miss?

I'm looking forward to the open road. Until then, we'll be packing this baby with our spare change to keep the dream alive!

This sounds like an amazing trip! I would do some of the church history sites and hit up niagra falls if you go up that way. Haws took a rode trip from Tennesse to CA. I am sure he has some good places you should see.

You guys should come and see us here in Buffalo, we can go to Niagara Falls and some of the church history sights. We would love to see you two. Let us know!

You should try and make it to Sedona,AZ for the mystic in you (and Kiffy, I know he feels it too.) But really, it's amazing even by the off chance you're not into vortexes.
