Road trip

Jilda and I have had the good fortune to travel some since we were married. I started working with computers in the 1980s.
I moved in to hardware maintenance and as luck would have it, most of the training school for the computers I worked on were around Boston, Silicon Valley in California, Colorado, Texas, and Florida.
When I traveled, I'd take vacation after the class and Jilda often joined me so traveling cost us very little.
I have tons of pictures I've taken through the years and I spent time earlier today flipping through some of them.
One thing we haven't done is drive across country. I haven't talked much about it, but as I looked at pictures from Sedona, where we spent our 30th anniversary I realized I'd love to see this country up close and personal. Not from five miles high, but just outside the window. That way I could roll down the windows and hear the sound of the wind rushing by, and smell what aromas each region has to offer.
An agenda would be optional, but a list of great places to eat and fish would be mandatory.
Anyhow, a road trip will be on my vision board for 2014.

    I hope you get your road trip, Rick!!

  2. We take quite a few road trips, three this past fall, and we love them. We love to watch the views change as we move from state to state. When we fly, we always rent a car and do some side trips as well. Road trips are great if done right because then you experience more than just the end destination.

  3. I hope you get your road trip and take the camera so we can ride along.

  4. A road trip is a wonderful idea, I have been thinking about fixing my vision board up, it has been awhile but dreams and plans change. :)

  5. Like you, Rick....I want to see more of our country up close and personally.
    I wish for you and Jilda a very Happy New Year.

  6. Road trips are great. We love them.
    Cool picture.

  7. The greatest trip I ever took was when I drove from NJ to Boise, Idaho. Amazing scenery and memories.

  8. Lovely image! I love to travel! A cross country road trip sounds like a wonderful time! Wishing you all the best in 2014, Happy New Year to you and your family!
