I've been inspired, by a movie of all things (elizabethtown). I know it was destiny and I know what I want.....
My sister, best friend, barer of all my secrets, and closest confidant is moving from our hometown of Las Vegas (yes your destination is our starting point) to a cold, dreary place...Gaylord MI?!?!?! Well it's actually a very nice place but I will forever hold a grudge against it.
It is very hard to fathom such a great distance. And as much as I know we won't let each other drift, I also know things won't be the same. (We are so incredibly close we have matching tattoos to symbolize the song we've dedicated to each other, LeeAnn Womack's "I Hope You Dance") They (she and her fiance, also whom I hold a grudge against, and my beautiful neice) will be driving out ALL of their stuff probably sometime in June but it may end up being later than that.
They already have to drive at least one vehicle, so it dawned on me....why not have one last BIG hurrah. Help her enter a new chapter, a new life really, by exploring the country, and ultimately each other. By not being a wallflower, and DANCING our way to Michigan. (This will also give me something to look forward to in her move)
So here's the deal...where do I start? Do I start with roads, maps and directons? Then move onto sights on each road? Do I google each town along the way to find its high and low points?
We are both grown woman, with husbands(fiance) and children. We're not looking for a party. Just time to grow closer before we move apart. To learn about and from each other. Something that we will remember and tell stories of when we are 70 yrs old. We want a general idea of when we will arrive and some great things to do along the way. But we're both open to changes. We just want to experience more life together. We're not looking for anything too extreme, but nothing boring either.
I'm so excited that I found this websight, but now I'm sort of on censory overload..there's so much info, what's my starting point and how do I start it? Any advice, real-life tried and true plans is greatly appreciated.
