My two brothers are driving across the country – with Tyrone. You can track there journey here. Really, it’s the pictures with Tryone that crack me up…People need to borrow that dog for their cross-country pictures, he adds an amazing element…
We are preparing to trek to Florida – sans Tyrone. Road trips are on the mind…Here are my top 4 road trip memories:
1. 1990 Family Trip to Disney. 2 adults, 3 children, 1 cassette tape (of a Christian Comedian) I kid you not.
2. 1997 Youth Group Trip to Chicago: you know you are in high school when 2 days in a packed 15 passenger van sounds incredible. Not so incredible, on the way home. Things were a bit tight as Daniel had to hug the bumper that had fallen off the whole way back…
3. 2002 Erin and Nina: Texas or Bust. We stopped at as many Cracker Barrels as we could (there are 57 between Harrisonburg, VA and Austin, TX) and quickly learned that Traveler’s Checks had become a part of history (even our unused ones)
4. 2004 Travis takes me to Prince Edward Island. As we crossed the final bridge, he learns that Anne of Green Gables was actually a fictional character. “She’s not real?! We came this far for someone who just exists in a book!”
Any great Road Trip Memories? Scars? Feel free to share advice for the trip down I95 – besides of course telling us to stop at South of the Border. That’s a given.
