On the Road

For the next two weeks, this will be home to hubby, daughter, son-in-law, 2 grandchildren and me.  Cozy, huhn?

So, how did this happen?  One Sunday night family dinner, the conversation got around to where we’d most like to go.  Everyone had his or her own special place, typically out of the U.S.  My choice was Marfa and the Grand Canyon.

“Sweet,” says the son-in law. “That would make a great road trip with the girls.”

“For you maybe,” says the hubby, “but when I go I’ll be flying.”  And so it ended.

I leave town for a couple of weeks and at the next family dinner, this was on my plate.

How could this have happened?  No doubt the son-in-law and daughter plied the hubby with enough wine to make him think going to the Grand Canyon in a big ole RV was a good idea.

Before you know it, the trip was mapped out, the RV rented and we would travel to Marfa, Sedona, Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam, Santa Fe and Fredericksburg with whatever stops look interesting thrown in, too.

Hey, I’m in, the RV is packed and we are ready to roll with Willie singing in the background.

             On the road again

Goin’ places that I’ve never been

Seein’ things I may never see again

And I can’t wait to get on the road again.

Who knows how often it will be possible to post during this adventure, but you will hear about all of it.  My camera is ready to capture every detail.  In fact, a video might be a better idea because with this crew, the trip could very easily turn into a reality show!

i love your comments so jump right in and share your thoughts
