Off We Go Into the Wild Blue Yonder

Today is the day!

I am writing this post from the car.  We've been on the road two hours.  I think we're somewhere near Sacramento....

Our trusty Honda Odyssey will be our home for the next six weeks.  We're going through Colorado, Iowa, Ohio, Indiana....all the way to the east coast, down to Georgia, and then back to southern California through the southern states.

We will visit New York, Washington DC, the Grand Canyon....
but most importantly, and the reason we're doing this crazy trip--
We will be visiting about 30 homes.  Friends from California who have moved to other parts of the country, former staff from HOPAC, and old friends that even go as far back as my Liberia days--people I haven't seen in over 20 years.  

Our itinerary is over 6 pages long.  

But we've got a GPS, we've got Kindle Fires and Leapsters, we've even got a tiny fridge that runs on the car battery.  We've got stickers and a prize box and plastic containers that fit into every nook and cranny of the car!

I am going to attempt to blog about every state we visit.  Very sorry for those of you who want to hear about Africa and now get a U.S. travel blog.  I won't be offended if you take a six-week hiatus from reading.  :-)

Destination of the Day:  Middle of Nowhere, Nevada.  Nothing like starting off the trip with a bang.
