Aloha! (moving from HI) Traveling in a little car (BMW, heated seats, runs great, good tunes/phone charger) w/ the biggest Thule cargo container they make. Shipped the car today, March 9th it arrives in LA. I’m not sure if you can tell me much, though I want to say "Hi!" & see about tips on doing some fast map points. I’m going to be using the research from many places, namely, eatwellguide.org & then trying to plug in any playgrounds, if I get time I’m going to try to put in gardens, & indoor play gyms that have fantastic websites.
I’d add in u-pick farms but it isn't great timing (for part A). I’m also drawing a route that does not travel through factory farming counties or near meat processing plants at all. It is really important to me to support areas that don’t & going to try to escape everything but dairy (cause it is pretty hard to avoid). I’m also trying to find routes that are near organic farms. Yep, I’m a pretty beautiful plant eater (we still eat animal sometimes) that loves my two wee children, 3 & 1, plus my dearest DH of 10 years. The "crunchy" part on the outside (clothing, music, films) is pretty strong in me (30), not much in my sweetie (yet, he’s 45). He wants to get to VA soon, but have a good time. I think 2-3 weeks is about it. We are also hunting for a certain style RV, class B w/ 4 captain chairs to be exact (& pray queen bed), but only really need it for the rest of the year full-time, maybe we’ll RV again the following year in spring, maybe we’ll keep her for life; can't spend more than 25k. Need to stop into some very special RV places along the way (maybe). Our goal is to find a sweet little town w/ a bunch of foodie gardeners, in an organic folk arts region & settle down (transition handbook anyone?) for about 50k (vs. 650k here! We just sold) on the East Coast near all of our spread out family (start eco home company). That is a whole other story, but explains the Class B (state parks, festivals, u-pick, etc).
Thinking of going two ways, but weather is so iffy right? UT, CO on over, or Austin TX way… I think I want to try Arizonia to TX way.. I have read big things about those places and NM recently…
So any tips? My map is going to be pretty specific, though I would love any nature hints.. meadows, lakes, birds, animals..
I would love it if you guys made a special road trip that high lighted farm to table food places & organic u-pick farms, or no spray farms along the way.. I’m not sure if any of you saw the "Ted Wish" for this year, but it seems like people that have gave their all in life to make these organic/local no spray/healthy places need our help right now. They are mostly young people trying to save food, American food!!! Without x,y,z added to it or made from it (GMO). Teaching people about food and growing some food in ever lawn can make a big change and dude, at least plant fruit trees! (See, it isn’t about rows, it is more like a flower garden with food) God Bless!!!
