Summer (Fall) Road Trip 2.0?

Well, the plan is up in the air again. And I don’t mean we are going to fly instead of drive. Although…maybe we are going to fly instead of drive. Our whole idea of using a family wedding as a touchstone to a Canadian/East Coast road trip may be kaflooey. I hate it when reality intervenes in my travel dreams.

I have acquired some freelance work and we have bumped up the schedule for becoming former homeowners, so we’re no longer sure whether we can pull off a few weeks on the road. On the other hand, if we become former homeowners in a timely fashion, we can travel when teachers and students are in class–a real novelty for me. Off-season travel rocks–fewer crowds, lower prices, but it’s been about 18 years since I’ve been able to pull it off.

This is all my long-winded way of says: “I don’t know what the what is going on this summer!” Here are some of our options:

  • Fly to the wedding and take fall road trip
  • Fly to the wedding and go back to work
  • Don’t go to the wedding
  • Fly to Utah to look for temporary abode
  • Drive to Utah to look for temporary abode and do a westward road trip
  • Go nowhere because we are busy packing and moving
  • Go nowhere because we are busy keeping the house in order and the dog out of the way for potential new homeowners
  • Spend another winter crying because we are still in Chicago (yes, Steven, I know) NOOOOOO‼️‼️‼️‼️
  • Stick with the plan as is and figure out the dog situation
  • Throw it all out the window, and plan a completely different trip once we have some idea what our lives will look like in the fall

Phew! So there you have it. No _________ idea. But isn’t that part of the fun?
