Road Trip!!!

Thought I would share this since many of you have asked how the dreaded Road Trip went.  I used to like road trips, but living on Oahu for 6 years really ruined me since I could drive around the entire island in 3 hours…so the thought of 36 straight hours from North Carolina to Washington State didn’t excite me….so much so that Patton told me if I wanted I could just fly there and he’d make the drive by himself…with a full motorcycle trailer in tow…Ummmm no, I’m not that bad of a wife.  I sucked it up, buckled in, and actually enjoyed the ride – well most of the time :)

We saw some amazing things along the way….and some things that claimed to be amazing that weren’t.  Wildlife was everywhere.  We saw a bear get chased by an Elk, Bison taking walks along the side of the road, and a coyote that was literally 3 feet away from us…YIKES!  We slept in our jeep at night a few times – which was very cold – but those are the times I actually remember most as Patton and I literally had no distractions and we actually got to “talk” – something even he will admit, he’s not very good at :)

Our country is beautiful, if you haven’t experienced it, please do!  Oh, and don’t judge….I wear a bite splint when I sleep and I’m proud of it….Also, I’m very whiney in the morning so FYI!

We’re in Seattle now, so holler at us if you are heading our way….We may just take you on an excellent adventure!


The “Happy 2 Year Anniversary” message is meant for Patton, it was my gift to him since we couldn’t spend it together.
