“Don't spend money on things... spend money on experiences. You'll enjoy life a lot more!”
-Ziad K. Abdelnour
So here we are. June 6th. We have been talking about this date for a while now. This is the day that Rose and I will be starting our cross-country road trip! It has been this mythical being, our unicorn if you will, for so long that we never really thought it existed. Yesterday it started to sink in and today we set off on our epic 6 week (ish...) journey! I would say once-in-a-lifetime but I really hope not.
How it gets real...
After a hearty breakfast we set off for our first stop on the trip, Wilmington, North Carolina. Our basic outline is to take a southern route to California, hop a plane to Hawaii, then come back and do Route 66 as far as we can before getting off and heading back to Maryland. Driving over 6000 miles total.
On the way out we plan on stopping in Wilmington, NC; New Orleans, LA; Houston, TX; Phoenix, AZ; Los Angeles, CA; and Kona, HI. Route 66 is basically a free roam with no structure whatsoever besides go east. Stay posted for tales from the road and all the countless adventures we face along the way. I can't wait to get started!!!
Life is all about experiences. You can't take it with you when you go so you might as well enjoy it while you can. So while we are still young and responsibility-less, it's off we go!
Here we go!
