I am posting this map with a bit of trepidation. Mostly because last night we considered scrapping everything and thought about heading to the Florida Keys for the next little bit. Then heading west for ski season. Our map is ambitious and we know it. We just wanted to see what was possible. We wanted to know if we were to hit all of the major places we ever dreamed of if that was physically possible in three months. In the last week we took Chicago off the route. Last night we added back St. Louis. We debated long past our bedtime, knowing we were leaving in the morning. We are still working out our goals and expectations.
Our trip is not set in stone. But this is our plan for now. I think we have ultimately decided to go where we are interested and stay where we are comfortable. We hope to never travel more than 10 hours a day, and never have two long travel days back to back. The Broncos game in Cleveland may get the ax and so might the Hockey Hall of Fame. We will have sad little sports fans, but it may mean an extra night in The Big Apple.
We have been using Roadtrippers to map our course. It is a bit glitchy for this big of a trip. We are not able to add points of interest, and it is forever changing our trip dates. However, I do appreciate knowing what kind of driving day we have ahead of us and if I want to map out a hypothetical route, it’s very simple.
Keep us in your thoughts as we head out later today. Our first big stop is a special birthday in Malcolm, NE. We have 3 1/2 days to get there. Please feel free to comment and continue to make suggestions about our route and places to see! Bon Voyage!
