Four hundred eight hours or in other words 17 days. I got to travel across the great plains and mountains of the American lands. I did not do this on my own. The love of my life, Ryan, was the driver and travel coordinator of this trip. We were like Lewis and Clark on an expedition traveling over 8,000, but we did it in a white Chevy truck.
We went camping in new territory to hotel hoping from city to city. We watched a couple become husband and wife. I got to witness the reunion of a grandmother and her grandson. We went from an elevation of 9,000 to 100 miles below sea level. I got to touch the sand of the Atlantic Ocean to the Paciﬁc Ocean.
The sights were breath taking and hard to describe, but thanks to a camera to capture all the beauty in a picture. God created some beautiful scenery in America. The sights made me realize we are not meant to be stuck in one place. I am going to share my moments, stories and adventures with you in a new series of blogging called, 17 Days.
Traveling is one of my Fun Little Joys in life. I always had a side of traveling since I was kid when my parents took me on road trips to visit family to adventure off into Amish Country or New York City. In this trip, it was my ﬁrst time ever going to Paciﬁc Ocean and the furthest west and north I have ever been. The best part is I got to share that life goal with Ryan.
When you are traveling, your ﬁrst sights is from your car’s point of you. Since I was the passenger majority of the trip, I got to constantly capture pictures from the car’s point of view. All of the pictures in this blog is from the car. In each series, I will write about a new national park, city, event or moment. It won’t just be 17 blogs either. We did so much more that just 17 events in 17 days. I know it sounds crazy, but it was not crazy. It was an adventure!
I think the best part of a road trip is the anticipation. The road trip builds up adrenaline which stirs up excitement to a new adventure or new place. I think the best part of the trip was not knowing exactly where we were going to next. Yes, Ryan told me, but at the same time he changed locations or plans.
The 17 Day trip begins in Orlando, FL heading to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
