Family Life, Musings

“Too old. He is too old to begin the training” – Yoda

Aaaannndd it begins. My time to travel across the country has begun. But most gut wrenching of all is the fact that I have to leave my famy again for another summer. This is why I am choosing to attend this school. I am sick and tired of leaving my family alone just so I can earn a buck. It wasn’t even a big buck either. Ha!

So the plan is to take a southern route across country: leave home and exit through south west VA, then through Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas’ northern panhandle, New Mexico, Arizona, and then on up through California. I wanted originally to go more north and see family in Ohio, Kansas, and Colorado, but the fastest route would t have brought me close and I’m limited on time anyway. It’s just best for me to go the most direct route. That and there were tolls to the north. And I’m stingy 🙂

So yeah, I’ll try and take a pick every time I enter a new state and post it as evidence. After this trip I’ll have visited/drove through more than half of the US. Hooray

  1. If you have time to make a few brief stops along the way:
    – Big Texan steakhouse in Amarillo TX (eat a 72 oz steak and it’s free!), for your inner caveman;
    – Sandia Peak tramway, Albuquerque NM
    – Get some Mexican food in Albuquerque (see Trip Advisor)
    – Painted Desert National Park, AZ
    – Grand Canyon AZ (of course)

    The plains and desert look pretty drab and dreary especially if you’re used to the east, but there are some gems along the way if you stop and look.
