Gypsy Trip my hubs Highway and I are planning for next year around the U.S. We plan to leave April 15, 2013 and head out to see America. With very little planning, two bikes, only the gear we can carry, and laptops, cell phones and cameras, we want to see this country we call home.
It is really our goal to have no "hard and fast" destinations. But the idea of making a list of "maybes" excites me! The things I want to see are silly, it seems, to many people. When we took a road trip last year in my car (I wasn't quite ready for it on the bike) I saw the plains for the first time in my life. The sight of the sprawling landscape that seemed to go on forever took my breath away. I had read about the plains, seen them in movies and photos, but until you are there, right there in the middle of this enormous painting by God's hand, you can't begin to grasp the awesomeness it holds.
I'm ready to see it all. I want to see corn grow in Iowa, the Potato Museum in Idaho, the NFL Hall of Fame, eat barbeque in St. Louis and in Dallas, eat jambalaya in Louisiana, watch the sun rise over the Atlantic Ocean, feel the wind blow in Chicago and taste the dust in the Oklahoma air. Where should we go? What should we see? What is in YOUR town, county, or state that I shouldn't miss? Where have you been that I need to see?
Tell me what you think and I'll add this to my "List of Maybes". When we blow through that part of the country, we'll look at the list and do our best to tie it into our plans. And let me know where you are! We can grab a bite to eat at your favorite place and share a refreshing beverage together. I want to meet other bikers who share our passion for this life.
Thanks in advance for helping me dream. . .
