Planning trips with a map helps me get my head on straight. I’ve spent a good part of the last few days at Rand McNally’s website, which has a nice trip planning option that helps me figure out routes for a road trip. And I love a road trip.
Here are a few of my proposed Road Trips for this Spring:
Southeast US Trip – Georgia, Alabama and North Carolina (early March)
Here’s my drive up to Buffalo / Rochester / Toronto Trip (early April)
Here’s my proposed trip out to Ohio and Michigan, culminating at TNNA. The weekend before this trip I’m going to fly out to Cincinnati to teach at Lambikins Hideaway in Hamilton, OH, I was planning on driving there, too, but I just couldn’t justify making my trip 3 weeks long!
The kids will be traveling with me on this trip – Gerry will drive out after Memorial Day and will meet us at Cedar Point, then we’ll continue up to Mackinaw City where I’ll teach and Gerry and the kids will explore and goof off (I’m taking a day, myself, to goof off, too!)
Then Gerry and the kids drive home, and I continue on to TNNA. Then I drive home.
As hard as it is to be away from the kids, it’s much better to get all of this traveling done while they’re still in school so I can stay home over the summer.
If you’re along this route – especially the Mackinaw City to Indianapolis section – and would like me to teach at your local shop, please let me know (and let THEM know, too!) We may be able to work out a nice class!
