Earlier this week I left NY and drove to Virginia taking the interstate the whole way. It’s easy to forget how much stuff is transported by 18 wheelers (big rigs, semitrucks, tractor trailers) until you drive a major hauling route. I can only hope you are now singing the song Convoy right now! If not, I’m here to help http://youtu.be/Sd5ZLJWQmss.
In the 5 hours I was on the road I passed through NY, NJ, PA, MD, WV and VA. [Now TES (Troy Elementary School) kids that was 320 miles. If I’d traveled 320 miles from San Antonio, TX in a North West direction (think El Paso) would I still be in Texas?] I knew I was headed South because I saw RVs, my first Waffle House of the trip, and snow (that snow part is funny because it’s true). They got 33 inches here! In fact it’s snowing while I type this – don’t get too worked up about it though. The forecast says temps in the 50s starting Sunday and for most of next week. Not that this will impact me, on Saturday my sister is picking me up and we’ll head South to visit my mom in Florida. We’re going to take a simple one day drive and drag it out into a week long trip. It’s one of our specialities.
Next post I’ll explain why my car is staying in VA, when I am not. How will I take an amazing road trip adventure (as advertised) without my car?!? Stay tuned to find out. 🙂
