Oregon Coast – 2011 Road Trip
On the road again!
Two years ago we toured the northeastern states up to Maine. Last year we went up into western Canada, saw Banff and then went over to the west coast and traveled down into California. Then we cut across to the Grand Canyon and back up to Omaha. This year?
When you read this we will be well on our way!
The basic path is from Omaha, to DC, down the coast to Florida and back up through the Smoky Mountains. We are going to hit Chicago, The White House and Capital Building, Colonial Williamsburg, Disney and more!
I will be blogging the trip here. I will be blogging a few days behind because internet is iffy, it takes me a while to get pictures and posts ready, and I am weird about letting people know where I am 🙂
Why all the road trips?
Maybe we are a bit weird, but our family loves to spend the time together and explore. Hopefully we will get the chance to explore out of the country more, but for right now we are trying to see as much of our own country as possible.
How can we take off so long?
Well, we are self-employed so we can leave for as long as we want and not get paid. ah, one of the huge perks. We travel as cheap as possible so that we can be gone as long as possible. We will be camping and cooking and doing all the free stuff we can find. Our budget for this 6 week trip is $3500. We live in our tiny 1 bedroom apartment and save over $500 from where we lived before we simplified and this is where we decided to spend the savings.
I want to keep up this site as well as blog through our trip. To do this I have set up a ‘sub’ site at lovingsimpleliving.com/roadtrip/ to record our travels. I will do my best to keep up with my regular posting here at Loving Simple Living and your RSS feed or e-mail will not include any travels.
If you would like to follow our travels come by the roadtrip site. You can sign up for updates by RSS or e-mail for just our roadtrip updates. (when we are done our trip you won’t keep getting updates and it is super easy to unsubscribe from the bottom of the e-mail)
Okay… off to more packing 🙂
