I'm taking a ROAD TRIP! Which is truly amusing cause I don't really like driving, especially freeways. (which I know is ridiculous in LA) But I am gonna do it, I am.
My cousin is getting married, he lives in OR....so I am going to drive all the way there...WITH the ktbunch in tow. Then I am going to drive further North to see my best friend from Highschool in WA.
The fun part? I will NOT be rushing. We will take our time, pick up an e-friend along the way, stop & camp in the Redwoods, then arrive in OR to spend time w/ my aunt & get ready for my cousin's 'big day'. After that, go visit another e-friend on the way to see my HS friend, then head on back down & continue to take our time, see more sights & camp a night on our way home.
I am thinking the trip will take about 5 nights. Possibly 4.
I remember when I was little, my parents driving up to OR a few times to visit my auntie. One of those times we didn't drive straight through...we took the scenic route & saw the Redwoods. I clearly remember the 'drive-through-tree' & the GIANT statue of Paul Bunyun & his big blue ox.
I am looking forward to creating some of those same memories w/ my ktbunch.
The other things is: adventure, plain & simple. You're never too old for adventure...& if you are, I plan to prove it wrong.
Life IS adventure.
If you're not on an adventure, you must not be living.
Never too old to learn or try something new.
Am I nervous? Sure. AND excited! I've NEVER driven like that before! lol But I won't let fear or anything else keep me from DOING. (that's not a typo, btw) I'm a smart girl, we'll be ok.
Life is for the living.
I've got some planning to do. ;-)
