Just a few moments before we left our teeny tiny town to explore this giant world!
the seat where most of the road trip photos came from. We didn’t make any un-necessary stops.
What we got to see in Chi-town…here’s to hoping next time we see lots more of it!
It wouldn’t have been a proper road trip without car troubles.
found this letter from Alexis in the morning. Suggestions for Minn. We can’t wait to go back!
We finally made it to Minn. to enjoy Karaoke night with some of the best people I know.
The girls killin’ it on this song.
the magic of karaoke!
A field of windmills!
Hello from our campsite in Wyoming!
Our lovely little campsite for a night.
All I could think of was that song by Gillian Welch “Red Clay Halo”
One of those really cute tourist-y towns right outside the park.
A cowboy museum!! The little kid inside of me was so happy and thrilled! Who am I kidding, all of me was!
Theodore Roosevelt State Park!
My favorite president and my cat’s namesake!
This sculpture was the only real “roadside attraction” we saw on the whole trip!
The most expensive road trip sandwich! Thankfully, it was worth it! All of the sandwiches had funky names from 80’s and 90’s bands like Kiss and Rush. But the cafe was so modern, it was a really interesting contrast.
If you have not seen this yet, I suggest you watch it. It will make everything feel better.
Falling in love with sailing.
Since Nick was in China for my birthday we decided to celebrate it together on the boat with dinner on the lake.
The sunset was stunning

Crescent city coast.
This little place on the coast was by far the best, with great local beer and amazing food.
The Oregon caves. Amazing and so fun!
Sailing on Howard Prairie the day before leaving.
Swimming Rama with chicken…. delish!
Suitcase sewing the morning we leave!
At PDX the day my passport/visa didn’t show up!
