OK, I’m lying… the road trip began July 20th but instead of posting the trip live I wrote it all down in a book (ie. Offline Blogging) so I could post every detail once we got home. Other than this first post which should be first thing tomorrow morning (before you guys wake up), I will try to keep everything posting as if the trip was going live but even if I don’t I hope you will be happy with what I have for you. It’s 28 days of adventure… starting now!
As usual we are up late packing but we have gotten much better because we are done and it’s only 1 am!
So here is the basic plan for our trip. We are driving up the East coast of the U.S. to Maine, then heading west to Montreal, through Canada then down into Wisconsin for a family reunion then back through Alabama and home again. We’ve planned four weeks for the trip and the only hard part is… we’re taking the dogs with us, so everything we do has to be dog friendly.
We’ve planned this trip for months to make sure we wouldn’t hit any snags along the road. I’ve got my PC sending it’s IP address to a secret website incase I need to connect to it and I have Remote Desktop installed on my Mac to work remotely if I have to. Everything else should be easy with an iPhone and some time at Starbucks.
One thing you are not going to see much of on this trip is video. Video is the reason I never finished last year’s trip out west. (which I hope to work in as time permits) But photos are easier to work with unless you have nothing else to do and can edit video 8 hours a day.
So it’s off to bed, we’re loading the car at 6 am and heading out. It should be an awesome trip!
