Heading Out

This morning, we’re packing and leaving on a 3-week vacation. We’re taking a grand tour of the United States, and though we’re keeping our itinerary a little flexible, our current plan is to go from Arizona to Illinois to Michigan to New York to Washington, DC, to North Carolina to Louisiana and back home to Arizona. The trip is so long that we’ll actually have to get the oil changed on the road at least twice. Whew!

Being on the road used to mean being disconnected, but not any more. Our phones and mi-fi device should keep us connected the whole way. That will be nice for checking maps, making reservations, and keeping my daughter occupied, but it also means we can post trip updates and I can keep my writing business going.

Even though it’s a vacation, I’m still going to find time to keep writing every day. I have several life-changing projects in the works, and I can’t wait to share them when we get back.

Now, though, we’re off for my daughter to meet some new cousins and to see the Mississippi, the Great Lakes, the Atlantic Ocean, the Gulf Coast, our country’s capital, and two of our three biggest cities, among lots and lots of other things. It’s going to be a great trip.

We’ll be in touch.
