Welcome to my 2022 Road Trip travel blog! I have been preparing many months for a solo road trip around the US. Phase one is from Portland, OR to Portland, ME. Phase two will be from the Northeast down to Florida to meet my husband on his last stretch of his bike ride trip. Phase three will be very unpredictable. Don and I will be traveling together and throwing all the cards in the air and see where they land.
I have always enjoyed the outdoors, hiking, camping, kayaking, and choose an adventurous route when given the option. Therefore, the choice to start off my retirement career with this road trip is no surprise to my closest friends and family. I have usually worked two jobs since I was young teenager. It is now time for me, hit a reset button, take time to reflect on where I’ve been and where I am going, enjoy the natural gifts that are around me and see the places that I have always read/heard about.
Please follow me on my journey this year as I visit National Parks, small towns, foodie stops, nature hikes and whatever else comes into my path. I will do my best to keep the blog up to date but will have limited access to internet and power frequently. Thank you for logging in, this means you care about me and are interested in what I am doing. We just grew stronger together! I plan on being on the road for 6-9 months, the first 3 months will be solo. August 5th is my take off date, until then I will be busy visiting my friends, family, celebrating my husband’s retirement, packing the car and closing up the house.
My plan is to print the blog pages with all your comments when I get home to make a travel book. So please leave comments, I will be craving words from home after the first week!
Thank you - Michelle
