Hittin’ the Road

It’s been a long time since I took a road trip, this time last year, in fact, when I did my 30-day road trip out west. This trip isn’t quite so grand, but it should be just as much fun.

The first five days I’ll be traveling with my parents. (Heaven help all of us.) I *adore* my parents and they adore me, but our lives are quite different, as they should be. It will be interesting to see how we’re able to work it out. They’re easy-going and generous, so I suspect all will be fine. If not, well, I’ll just apply their portion of my Christmas budget to my trip! :)

For our shared part of the trip, we’ll be visiting family and sights in the Washington-Baltimore area. After that, we split up and I’ll visit with some creative-type friends for a long weekend. After that, I don’t know where I’m going to go. Right now I’m thinking southern Pennsylvania over to Mill Run and Frank Lloyd Wright’s home, Falling Water. But I don’t know. I may turn south instead and do southern Virginia and then the mountains of North Carolina.

Needless to say, all of this traveling turns my normal way of eating and exercising on end. I’m thinking of resurrecting my 100-Pushups Challenge. Or maybe I’ll just focus on the Fantastic Five: push-ups, squats, lunges, planks, and dips. If I run out of ideas, I’ve got my NURU exercise cards in my computer bag. :) I’m okay with whatever I decide to do, as long as I do something.

Speaking of doing something, I’ve got a whole list of things still to be done. I’ll be blogging in bits and pieces and catching up with what’s going on with you all as I can. One thing about traveling with senior citizens is that they’re generally done pretty early in the evening. :)

  1. Have a great trip! I know you’ll get your exercise in. Push ups, squats and lunges, oh my!

  2. Have a great holiday Cammy! Hope the shared part of the trip goes well and that you are able to keep up your exercise routine.
    Sounds like you have planned ahead with it all, which is very wise! I went to Vanuatu last year and didn’t really feel safe to jog or walk by myself – so yes, I stuck to push ups , squats and lunges too. Happy Holidays!

  3. Love to see the words “road trip” on anybody’s post. I’m the queen of road trips and have a couple planned myself in the next few weeks!

    I, too, laughed out loud at your last statement about being done early. The other thing I have found about traveling with older folks is the only places they want to eat are Shoney’s and Cracker Barrel. This generally does NOT work for people like you and me!!

    Have a great time!

  4. Cammy, have fun & I know that no matter what, you will find a way to move & keep active! I remember all your great pics from last trip so looking forward to that again!

    HAVE FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    PS: I resemble your last statement & I am not even there yet! 😉

  5. OH, Cammy, I do so admire and envy your free-spirit attitude!

    Maybe I’ll go east, maybe I’ll go west……..

    Traveling with my parents would definitely be a challenge. Perhaps an impossibility. Two hours at one of Sonny’s baseball games with them about does me in.

    Forge on, Brave Traveler! Can’t wait to read about your adventures. Know that I am vicariously with you, and not in creepy-stalkerish sort of way.

  6. From one solo traveler to another solo traveler, I love it that your plan is not exact, not cut in stone, but open to whims and fancy, open to weather and stimulus variations!!! That’s my path for driving MN to WA as well… however many days it takes and follow my nose wherever it leads!

    I shall be rooting for your exercise and food commitments to hold strong, Cammy. Will you hold my hand and root for mine as well? I’ve had a set back with food on this trip, but am currently on track again.

  7. Sounds like a great adventure is ahead for you. I for one think it is fantastic that you can spend some vacation time with your parents.

    Eat, drink and be merry!
