Off on an adventure

I’ve set this to auto-post for early Friday morning, at which time my husband and I will be setting out on the the beginning leg of a road trip we’re taking to visit friends. The only thing I will say is that we’re heading south. George is in the car with us but Blackie is staying home.

School is on Spring Break where I work and we’ve been planning this trip for awhile now. I won’t be online until at least Sunday and will try to post a few times while we’re away.

So to all my friends near and far, I will miss you. But we’re off having adventures so wish us luck!

 

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.

We wander for distraction, but we travel for fulfillment.

No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home

and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow.

That last quote, about your own pillow, is exactly how I feel about traveling.

I do hope things go well on your trip. Not to stressful. Being cooped up in a car with your significant car can be like that.

Traveling mercies. We'll look forward to hearing about your road adventures along the way.

May the traveling gods smile on you... and just remember -- as a woman, you must reserve the right to bathroom breaks and asking for directions. ;)

Have fun, and take lots of pictures! :)

I realized this morning that buzzard on top of the shed roof looks just like a Muppet .. of course now I cant remember which one; maybe by the time you are home I will.

Who feeds Blackie while you are gone?

Safe travels and enjoy the trip. Curious how well George rides long distances. The Herd actually travels quite well, though we must stop every 2 hours or so for a certain loud Cheoah - who when she wants something, wants it RIGHT NOW.

Have a fun and safe trip!

I love to travel and explore new places and cultures. I was just thinking how I haven't been away for a while and that I really ought to plan a trip. Enjoy yours!
