Today we are embarking on our next Epic Road trip. On our last journey, we were two wandering souls who had just quit our jobs and went seeking a new life. As we leave this morning on our next trip, we head out with a different mind-set and a different mission. We are going on a grand adventure and driving from Key West, Florida to Dead Horse, Alaska. We planned a loose itinerary and aren’t sure if the weather will allow us to reach our final destination. Somehow that makes us happy. We are more interested in the journey along the way and the adventures it will bring. We could have planned this trip in the Summer when the roads are clear and there isn’t a threat of snow or ice, but we didn’t. Without a sense of the unknown it’s not truly an adventure, is it?
Our mission this trip is to seek out new adventures, as we continue to grow our blog community. We want to share the thrill of traveling and there is no better way to do that than by telling it as it happens. We invite everyone to follow along on our adventures as they unfold. Our rambling path will first take us North to Chicago then West to enjoy sites such as Mt. Rushmore, Yellowstone, and Glacier National Park. From there we will cross the border into Canada and follow a path along the East of the Rockies to Alaska and hopefully to the city of Dead Horse. Our return trip should take us West of the Rockies and into Vancouver. Where will we go from there? Not sure yet :-) We did say our itinerary was loose, didn’t we? We will be updating the blog from the road side, hotels, and maybe a few coffee shops along the way. Our plan is to give frequent updates about where we’ve been and where we are headed. We want to share the whole travel experience with you, so we will be sharing more than just great destinations and attractions. We will also share our feelings and challenges along the way.
For us a road trip is about so much more that just a means to arrive at a destination, hopefully it is for you too!
See you from the road and keep rambling!
We would love to hear from you in the comments below. Share your idea with us for things to do along the way!
