Cody and I just had a long conversation while driving Lucy (our Westfalia) out to a little overnight camping trip for the first time with our new puppy Duke. We talked the whole time about how stoked we were to be leaving once Cody graduated(we actually passed our freeway exit because we were so distracted). We’ll be living in the Westfalia for around a year(or more!) to travel the US.
Since I am the ULTIMATE planner type and Cody is the “go whichever way the wind takes us” type, I think we will even each other out. Since I am the planner I have been staring at the United States map ALOT. Our plan is to leave a few months after Cody is finished with school in December of this year. So we will probably leave in March or April 2015?
We both have a million projects we would like to shoot while we are on our trip. Like portraits, landscapes and architecture. I have a big attraction to old signs and I really want to expand on that. I also have recently been throwing around the idea of writing a travel guide while on the trip. I also want to RAID every thrift store on the way… How could you not want to take full advantage of something so fun!?
It might be just me but I am in love with the open road and all of its possibilities!
What are the must-see places? I could use all the help I can get! In the upcoming months, I’ll be planning and planning… and PLANNING 🙂 You can’t really be TOO prepared can you?
