After months of planning and dreaming, it's finally here! The first leg of the road trip of a lifetime...
I write "first leg", as our journey has been amended, and broken into two parts. Family health concerns, mobility concerns (I'm still waiting for a more permanent ankle brace) and the prospect of traveling through the southwest in the heat of summer have inspired us to make some itinerary changes.
We leave tomorrow, May 13th (Mother's Day), and will head south; through Maryland to Virginia, on to North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida all the way to Key West, and back again a little farther west, and eventually through West Virginia, and back to Pennsylvania. Estimated time, about a month, possibly a little more.
The larger part of the journey (points west, Pacific Coast Highway from California to Washington, and home again via the northern states) is planned for early April next year. As with this trip, we'll be visiting artists studios along the way, and blogging about the journey.
Here's our ride...
Ann has been here in Lancaster County for a few days - despite some last minute glitches, we've been having such a great time, and I know the trip will be even better!
I'll miss John and Courtney, but we'll chat via phone and email, and I know I'll miss the furkids (and vice-versa). But what a journey it will be!!
The next post will be from the road. In the meantime, thank for following our adventures, and do leave a comment - we love to hear from you!
