  •  So many road trips... (14+ / 0-)

    ...  my life feels like a road trip to me. One long and winding journey.

    Some favorites:

    1970 - Flew from Chicago to Denver where I met up with husband to be who had driven my TR-250 to Denver. Then on the road with his tricked-out Triumph motorcycle on a trailer on the back of the car. Drove down the west coast of Mexico all the way to Mazatlan. Then we drove all the way back to Chicago thru Texas where the car had to have some repairs.

    1974 - Drove the Blue Bus (a Dodge van outfitted with too many amenities to describe here) from Chicago to Truckee CA where we met friends from Santa Cruz and then went camping in Lassen National Forest. This is where I had the first of my two up-close-and-personal lifetime encounters with bears.

    1997- Flew out to Providence RI, met up with my daughter, rented a car and drove up to Prince Edward Island. Great fun together.

    Shortest, favorite road trip about 1995. Rental car in Providence thence on to Cape Cod and driving around in search of a glimpse of Edward Gorey. Didn't see him but did see his house and a few of hits cats lazing on the porch.

    I declare enough is enough.... for now.
