Road Trip 2015 Draft 2

Road Trip 2015 Draft 2


It’s that time of year again! Time to plan our road trip to see the country and get out of the summer heat in Florida. During our road trip last summer we spent a good bit of time in California and Oregon, we love the West coast!  We were set on moving to Portland and had it all set in motion, we would have been moving there right now, this month. Well, things fell through and we’re ready to make St. Petersburg our home for the foreseeable future. However, the West still pulls on us with fervor. Originally we thought of staying closer to home, drive up the east coast, see Maine even. That lasted a second and we were revising the route towards the West once again.

Since we’ve done the SW several times now and have been itching to see the likes of Banff, Glacier, Yellowstone, Tetons, we decided to take the trip north this year and make our way to Washington and Oregon. We also like to stop in places where we know people. Seeing old friends, building relationships with those we’ve met once on other trips, etc. These are stops like New Orleans, Eufaula, AL, St. Paul, MN, Seattle, WA and Omaha, NE. Our trip rounds out in Little Rock, AR where we come together with our Unschooling Family at the Rethinking Everything Conference (waiting for confirmation). Not just for unschooled families of course, really for anyone thinking outside of the box. Then to Asheville for a little family time after the conference and home.

The thing about making the route is that it’s a template. Not set in stone. We like the freedom to stay longer somewhere if we choose to or eliminate if necessary. Our perfect trip would probably even include more! With three months you have to limit yourself, we like to really see an area. We travel abroad the same way. Slower travel, though we wish we could slow it down even more. Maybe in the future.

So thoughts on this route, any must sees or things nearby we should look into? Any unschoolers out there to visit? See you on the road!






Please share the LOVE:-)!
