Q1 2013 Travel Plans

Q1 2013 Travel Plans

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 …

Twelve Months Later

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 …

Happy Labor Day 2012!

Happy Labor Day 2012!

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.

East, east, 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 …

It’s almost over!?

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 …

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

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 …

The Push To Alaska

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, …

Where We Are and Where We’re Headed

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), …

Upcoming Route

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 …

Six Months of Travel Down, Six More to Go

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 …

So, What’re You Doing Next Month?

So, What’re You Doing Next Month?

After spending a few days in Paso Robles, enjoying the local produce, it was time to start heading back east. We had camped for the past four weeks – that’s right, we hadn’t spent a night, or more than a few hours, indoors for a …

State of the Trip: First Quarter

State of the Trip: First Quarter

We’re about three and a half months into our twelve month trip, so we thought it was about time for a quarterly status report. Rather than create a formal report, which would need to be audited for accuracy by someone like KPMG, we thought we’d …
