Enough moaning, time to start planning. Here are the places in the running for a Q1 Driving Inertia visit: New York (Manhattan and Brooklyn). We’ve never been to Brooklyn minus passing through it on the way to Manhattan. 2013 is our year. This one has to happen in January before our Chicago buddies head back to Chicago.  Florida. We want to get back to the St. Joseph peninsula, get some self-serve […]

Twelve Months Later

Well, we did it. We made it a year on the road! October 1st, 2011 is when this all started. Honestly, it has been pretty wonderful. The first month was tough bouncing around between New York and Wisconsin, but once we got going, once we started to head west, it all came together. We spent those next 10 months camping nearly every night. Yes, we stopped at a few houses, […]

We’re hoping everyone has a great Labor Day trip in progress today (or at least some enjoyable rest and relaxation). We’re back in the Midwest bouncing around between friends and family. Next weekend we head to London! We can’t wait.

Is that east?

East, east, east!

Sonoma’s the turn — we’re now headed east for the first time in a long time. East, generally, with zigs and zags, of course, but east nonetheless. Not west. There’s no more west to be had. We’ve pushed across the state already, hungover after a fun wedding, and laid-up outside Yosemite. Yosemite promised to be crazy. Before plunging in, we had coffee and WiFi at Mountain Sage coffee shop. If […]

It’s almost over!?

One recent afternoon I had an awful realization. We’re almost done. We have about two weeks before we need to be in Sonoma, CA. About 20 days after that we plan to be in Milwaukee, WI. Two weeks after that we fly to London from Chicago. We’ll spend three weeks in London, then return to Chicago. True, this all works out to about two and a half more months and […]

I wanna bite into a big hunk of cheese, just bite into it like it’s an apple.

This is post is from eons ago, when we were camped at City of Rocks in New Mexico, but we never ran it for whatever reason. We’ve been on the road over 8 months now. Thanks for reading! Bite into a hunk of cheese for me sometime. There’s a Seinfeld scene I keep replaying in my mind (from The Foundation episode). George is talking to Jerry about being free: George Costanza: […]

The Push To Alaska

I’ve wanted the trip to aim towards Alaska since we first envisioned it. We’re on our way north now, but we’re having second thoughts. Things aren’t really lining up as perfectly as we thought. For one, a year just sounds like a lot of time, but given 50 states, if you spend a week in each, there goes your year. It feels like we’re running out of time. Meanwhile, fun […]

Where We Are and Where We’re Headed

After Great Smoky, we spent a night in the backcountry of South Carolina, then pushed to lowcountry, the coast, and Charleston. This is all past tense because it has all happened. Our posts are about a week behind reality. We’ve been to Charleston (5 nights), we stopped in Savannah (2 nights, with a stop for beers at Pinkie Master’s), and we’ve made it to the Gulf coast. We’re holed-up on […]

Upcoming Route

After our stop in Chicago, we’re going to meet up with Lisa’s parents in Ohio. We’ll kill a little time in Detroit before that, and afterward we’re planning to head south to the Carolinas, then west to New Orleans. Plans are loose, like Rocky’s front bumper, but we’re still aiming for Alaska in the summer. We’re getting a bit soft with all this time spent indoors. We’ve fallen out of […]

Six Months of Travel Down, Six More to Go

We’re free! Thanks to our well-timed post and a quick prayer to Saint Mother Theodore Guerin in Terre Haute (that’s miracle three, bitches), we’ve been re-classified as non-enemy, non-combatant, pacifist travelers (no more indefinite detention!). Phew! Oh, and we promised to deny everything (and not post anything about the great tacos we had in Cuba). All that stuff we said about the RNC – totally false. Privatization is awesome. Businesses are people. Totally. Parks […]
