About The Trip:

My mother and I plan to circumnavigate the lower 48 states in the USA beginning September 1, 2007.

phylisej: Mom's blog ID, you can find her entries by selecting this Author. Mom just turned 80 so is a brave soul to take this on with me (to say nothing about the internet blogging!)

Here is where we're starting from: Shelton, Washington, USA. It's about 45 miles NW of Olympia or 85 miles SW of Seattle.

We plan to head east first, driving across the north, and spend about a month in NE (in fall), then south along the eastern seaboard to Key West, then west across the south (during Winter of course) to San Diego area, then up the western coast back to WA.

We're using a 1991 21' Winnebago Warrier. Cozy, but should be fun... The total trip should take about 8 months.


We now have lots of work to do to prepare the RV (got to stop some leaks, repair things, etc.), pack and plan the trip. We will add more to this blog on a regular basis, subject to internet availability.

I think what you are doing is fantastic! Life is too short to not take time out like this. I hope I can follow in your foodsteps someday. (You better talk up all the fun of the trip to my wife when you come visit here--which you'd better!). I'll look forward to seeing your photos and reading your blog entries. Have a great trip!
