“Our battered suitcases were piled on the sidewalk again; we had longer ways to go. But no matter, the road is life.” – Jack Kerouac
We’re on the road driving east. Clay has military obligations in Washington DC for the next couple of weeks and the little guy and I are tagging along. Lucy too – at least until the drop-off point in Fayetteville, NC. We originally planned to fly but figured Lucy would love to spend the time on vacation in Wilmington, NC with her grandparents rather than a kennel so a multi-day road trip it is! While we’re no strangers to driving super long distances with a toddler and 75 pound chocolate lab, it always seems a bit daunting when we first hit the road, knowing there are many miles between us and our destination. But I suppose it is about the journey too, right?
Our planned route involves an overnight stop in Arkansas, an overnight stop at my parents in Georgia, a two-night stop in Fayetteville, NC at Clay’s sister’s house for a family get-together/birthday party, and then finally up to Washington, DC.
So long Oklahoma!
I plan on blogging our trip over the next couple of weeks…if you’re not into that sort of thing, you probably want to stay away for the time being. You can’t say that I didn’t warn you.
Do you prefer road trips or flying to your destination?
