Sometimes I think it’s cathartic just do something for the hell of it. Why should you not use your tax return money to be stuck in a car with your best friend for a week? You can’t put a price on those kind of memories. You can’t explain the freedom that flies through your veins when you just go. Just do. I love that.

Things we learned on this trip:

  1. In weird states, it is illegal to drive in the left lane unless passing…. and you will get a ticket. Even if you don’t know any better.
  2. Fiber one bars give you life
  3. Magnesium carbonate sucks. It’s deadly. That’s enough detail.
  4. Never pay $30 for a salad while in Nashville. Even if it is in the shape of a tower and is topped with Lobster.
  5. Gingers can wake up and start driving with out coffee. That to me is magical.
  6. Sleeping in the car a few nights will save you time and money. It’s a pretty good thing to do, but probably not two nights in a row.
  7. No matter how much you like each other, you will get sick of each other when your trapped in a small vehicle for days.
  8. Always have a road trip playlist.
  9. Be organized and clean. It makes your feel better
  10. Kansas sucks. Be prepared to see nothing for miles, including bathrooms.
  11. Colorado and it’s inhabitants are amazing.
  12. I will take my future children on the CogWay in CO to see Santa.

So. There is a little bit of an insider to my adventures with Ginger.

All my love,
