Are you taking a road trip this summer? We are. Summer is just made for road trips. Or road trips are made for summer. Either way, it’s going to be awesome. I am so very excited! So much that I almost typed the word “stoked”. Do people still use that word?
It is not going to be the epic cross country RV trip I’ve been dreaming of. The one that would take us to New York City and back. That one just doesn’t seem to be working out yet. But don’t worry, it will. Hopefully when our kids are still young enough to fit on the dinette bed and enjoy being around us.
This summer we’ll be taking that old Brady Bunch road trip. You remember, don’t you? It’s the Grand Canyon! You know, when they got lost by their campsite and found that old ghost town? Classic. I hope we find a ghost town.
We’ll be renting an RV for part of the summer (hopefully from friends!) and driving our temporary house on wheels down to the hot Arizona desert. We also want to:
Visit Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah
Travel a bit of Route 66 between Arizona and California
Visit Disneyland with my sister and her family
(this has become my kids’ favorite vacation – Disneyland with the Rodrigos)
and meet up with friends in the Bay Area
The exact route and direction we’ll be traveling is still up in the air – and let’s face it…I’m not going to broadcast it here so the crazies will know where I’ll be traveling (my goal is to always out-crazy the crazies!) – but I am very excited about the possibilities.
I’ve already started thinking about what we can do to pass the time in the RV on long driving days. Crafts anyone? Magnetic chess? Quiz books? Audiobooks? Travel documentary DVD’s? Disney movies? Or maybe we’ll just fix us some lunch and eat…at a table…while we’re driving!!! How cool is that? Can you tell I’m giddy? I bet it’s surprising to you all that I’m already planning. No? You must know me well, then.
This trip is going to be epic in it’s own way. Awesome, even. And memorable. And pretty freakin’ rad.
Look out Grand Canyon, our crazy family is coming and we’re bringing a house on wheels!
I am so excited I could pee!!! But I won’t. I hope.
