Today’s the day. Today we finish clearing our stuff from the house we’ve been staying in, we finish loading the car, and we leave.
After a 3 month delay and a new twist of going to Italy in September, our US road trip has been cut from 4-5 months to 9-10 weeks. And it seems like that will be the perfect amount of time to see the friends and family we’re hoping to connect with.
We have very little schedule and very little plan. We’ll start the trip by heading to San Francisco area tonight. I wisely booked hotel rooms so that we’re not trying to set up tents after dark. The Clarion hotel by the SF airport has good rates, decent beds, and a free hot breakfast every morning. We’ve stayed there on previous SF trips and have not been disappointed.
From there, we only know that we’re aiming for Eugene OR on the 26th or 27th of June and Denver/Colorado Springs July 1st. After Colorado, we need to be in Flint MI by July 23 for a summer camp. And back in the San Diego area by Sept 5.
So really, we’re just winging it. And everyone is excited to be off on an adventure.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have some last minute packing to do.
