By the time this posts, I'll have been on the road for two hours already.

That's an early start.

I'm disabling comments for the next while because I won't be home to check them.

I'm kind of excited about being away from my computer for a week and a half, actually.  It's nice.

I hope you all have a lovely couple of weeks and that good things come your way while I'm away gallivanting.

I was looking back at last year's archives to see what I'd written, and here's what I'd figured would have happened on my first day of travels last year:

By the time you read this, I will (if all has gone to plan, which it should) have been in a vehicle with three people I don't know very well for a number of hours.

I will most likely have camped or slept in said vehicle last night somewhere in the States.  Washington maybe... or Oregon.  Both, very pretty states from what I can remember as a kid.

I will have either sat in the front seat, or taken gravol to keep my car sickness at bay.

Hopefully we're all getting along as well as we have up to now, and we've had some quiet time (I am an introvert after all, need my down time to recharge and not be insane.)

So... there you go.  That's where I probably am.


On the road again.  Just can't wait to get on the road again.  I think the song it has another line right here, but I don't know what it is the road again.

As it turns out, I did take the gravol (and will probably do so again this year) and so the car sickness wasn't an issue... yay for being proactive.  We all did get along but I didn't get enough quiet time and I think it was on the Saturday that I had to force myself into quiet time as I hit a wall of being with people... especially people who weren't "my" people.

I'm pretty sure we slept in Oregon both travel nights and Connor's pretty sure that we'll be able to get to our second stop on our first night this time (different, lighter vehicle) so perhaps we'll be there at the restaurant we've both said we're looking forward to visiting again.

Or not.  I have no real investment in where we rest/stop/sleep as long as we're both happy and safe and comfortable.  I remember sleeping like a log the first night, probably from the super early start, so there's that.

So send me good travel wishes and here's to being on the road.

Bikes on the back of our vehicle and packed to the rafters.
