State #28 Virginia

That's right, Virginia is for lovers or at least that's what the state's motto says. It's the middle to late September and it's still 90 degrees. I'm usually in my fall clothes by now. I'm not complaining by no means. I love it. The rest of my crew would like it a little cooler as... Continue Reading →

State #27 West Virginia

West Virginia, mountain momma, take me home, country roads. This John Denver song has become our traveling song. We first played it last summer on our road trip to Pennsylvania to a Gettysburg Civil War Reenactment. Driving through the Shenandoah Valley, the lyrics popped in my head and once Tucker heard it, it plays in... Continue Reading →

Washington DC

No trip around the United States could be complete without a stop in our nation's capital. So if you've never been to DC, let me help you out a little. One, hotels are expensive. We stayed just outside the city in Arlington at half the price; HALF. Two, parking is tough. We rode the metro... Continue Reading →

State #26 Maryland

Crabs and horses, you say? Yep! Maryland produces the most blue crabs in the United States. Blue crab isn't my favorite eats but they sure are pretty. You may or may not know that Assateague Island is home to around 200-250 wild horses. The island is split between Maryland and Virginia. We visited the Maryland... Continue Reading →

State #25 Delaware

The First State, nicknamed so, as it was the first state to ratify the US Constitution on December 7, 1787 and is about twice the size of Rhode Island. It was also the home of E.I. du Pont. Yep, those du Ponts...of the company DuPont. Part of the Hagley Museum and Library, Eleuthèrian Mills was... Continue Reading →

State# 24 Pennsylvania

Philadelphia, to be more exact, the city of brotherly love. Still a big city so Trev's still not back to himself but he's feeling better. Philly is cleaner with bigger sidewalks so that helps. Our hotel was a bit of a ways from the historic district so we did a mix of trains, buses, and... Continue Reading →

It’s Up To You…

New York, New York. I enjoy the city. I like the lights, the different architectural building designs, people watching, all the events and sights, etc. I love it! Trevor hates it and I mean hates it. He's usually a chipper fun guy. From the moment we took the wrong route he was in a foul... Continue Reading →

State #23 New Jersey

Jersey Cows, Jersey Shores, team Jerseys, and the Boss was born in Long Branch, New Jersey. And there you have it. So when we set out this morning, we purposely selected a route that was a little longer because Trevor wanted to avoid driving in New York City to get to Harrison NJ, which is... Continue Reading →

State #22 Connecticut

I love the original Christmas in Connecticut movie but we are way too early for Christmas. I'm still excited visiting these states I've never been too. Connecticut is home to the Gillette Castle State Park. It is a pretty little drive in the woods. Peaceful. The Castle was the retirement home of William Gillette, actor,... Continue Reading →
