We Are Going

To Do List for Lost in America Trip

Lists are SO easy with Evernote!

Four years ago, we moved from sunny San Jose, California to the wilds of New Hampshire. When we were to make our final move, we had planned a “Lost in America” drive from California to New Hampshire over a span of several weeks. We wanted to see the country—small town America, with all it’s normal (and unusual) sites, and some larger “must see” places. Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. The World’s Largest Ball of String. The Grand Canyon. Yellowstone. Santa Fe. Sedona. Route 66.

Well, it didn’t happen. I got a job a bit sooner than I had anticipated. So Tom made the trek by himself over a four-day period. He saw the country zoom by on Highway 80, and only stopped for food, fuel and a good night’s sleep. Well, except for the traffic jam caused by President Obama’s graduation address at Notre Dame.

Now that we both have a little time, we’re going to make the trip. Jasmine, Juliet, Tom and I are going to explore the (dog-friendly) country over a four- to six-week time span. We have a rough idea of where we’d like to go, but no real itinerary. If we like a place, we’ll stay a day or two. We’ll decide our agenda on a day-by-day basis.

May 1 is the target date…we may leave a few days later…who knows? That’s the beauty of a trip with an open agenda!

I’m making my lists to prep for the trip, but in all reality, we’ll get what we need on the road. Clothes, doggie stuff and a few essentials (cooler, camera, coffee) and we’re ready to roll!
