My family got to travel from Michigan to Washington and back again, visiting Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Wyoming, Idaho, Oregon, Montana, North Dakota, Minnesota, and Wisconsin on the way.
We got to spend time with family and meet up with friends. We saw amazing sights, hiked in beautiful natural scenery, visited several national parks, experienced terrifying weather, enjoyed great food, saw wildlife up close and personal, saw mummified fossils and paleontologists at work. We drank too many slusshies and pop, paid fortunes for fuel, put many miles on the vehicle, and killed way too many insects on our windshield.
I brought back some of my personal things from my parents home. It was a journey of a lifetime in more ways than one.
And I’d absolutely do it again.
