Trip Ideas

John and I are sitting at the BBC planning the second leg of our trip which brings us out west.  Did you know that the largest ball of string is broken into categories of balls of string, twine, and yarn?  I would have thought they were all the same category.  Go figure.

Here is our tentative itinerary for our first trip:
  1. Birmingham, AL
  2. Live Oak, FL (Patti/Kenny/)
  3. Down the west coast to the Keys
  4. Boca Raton (Paul/Yen/Doug/Annette)
  5. Daytona Beach (Cathy/Bill)
  6. Jacksonville (Margie/Marc)
  7. Savannah, SC (Mom/Dad/Brian/Lu)
  8. Charleston, SC 
  9. Asheville, NC
  10. Knoxville, TN (Kate/Michael)
We are currently working on our trip itinerary for trip 2:
  1. New Orleans
  2. Austin, TX (meeting Shawn/Amanda/Rob/Cassie)
  3. San Antonio, NM to see the Alamo...and have a nerf gun fight
  4. Roswell, NM to find aliens...flying monkey is looking for his family
  5. Gila National Forest (near Silver City, NM)
  6. Douglas, AZ (Shane & Crissy)
  7. Superstition Mtns near Scottsdale, AZ 
  8. Tijuana, Mexico
  9. San Diego, CA (Brian)
  10. Porterville, CA (Jim)
  11. San Francisco (Leah)
  12. Porterville, CA (Jim)
  13. Death Valley, CA
  14. Winslow, AZ to see the meteor crater and hopefully hang out with our friend we met on the last trip at the hotel bar
At some point we plan on going through Colorado and hope to get back to Louisville.  We are taking suggestions.


  1. Well, I can see right now that I'm not going to be breezing through your blog. For some reason, I thought you had just started it a few days ago. I will sit down and read the whole thing because it already is pulling me into it and I want to devote the time to "read it right".

  2. Superstition Mountain is just a few minutes from where Jodi and Rihbi live! Remind me to give you their phone # and address.
    Hmmm. Tijuana...the arm pit of the world. Be VERY careful there. Hopefully, it will be different from when we were there many years ago.
    Roswell -- I lived there for a little while when I was around 8 years old. Did Amanda and I ever tell you about the big lie we told one of her male friends? (Aliens, Roswell, strange lights...) They parted ways before we could tell him it was all a big joke.

  3. If you go to the Superstition Mts - John, you have to promise to stop by that dirty little restaurant if it is still there and get a burger.

  4. By the way, Jennifer did not say that - this is a work gmail account.

    It's Rob by the way.

  5. It would be awesome if you could plug Eureka, CA in after San Fran!


  6. I just read the above comments and see where Rob is posting as a woman. eh eh eh

  7. Yeah, Rob, I know you're probably using Jennifer's computer. ;-)

  8. Hey, watch it!


  9. You need to visit Canyon City and the Royal Gorge Bridge while you are in Colorado! It is a beautiful place and a MUST SEE!! I grew up there and have lots of fond memories. Beware of the deer! They will eat right out of your hands and WILL get in your car to go home with you if you leave your doors open!
