SO lucky us! We have been given the opportunity of a lifetime. Erica's dad has decided to Road trip to California but doesn't want to drive the car all the way back again... So I guess we might as well!
We are flying from Toronto to San Diego on the Fourth of May. The Fifth is Cinco De Mayo so that ought to be interesting. No idea what to expect.
From there we need to get the car back to Toronto in a reasonable amount of time (we're thinking around 3 weeks). The current plan is to head north, following the Pacific Coast Highway to San Francisco. From there... Who knows?! There's so many options, it's frankly quite intimidating. Hopefully we'll be inspired along the way on where to go next.
I've been trying hard not to plan anything too specific, I don't want to be too reliant on a schedule or anything... But that's been really hard since this trip is all I can think about. There's too many things I can't miss. I'll have to skip a BUNCH of important things no matter what. It's impossible.
So I don't really know what to expect! It'll be awesome, that much is pretty well certain. All the "complete freedom" and "limitless possibilities" themes from every road trip movie/episode/song/story are hitting pretty hard. Breweries will be high on my list of things to do... But there's more than a couple in San Diego alone so I have no idea how we'll handle that. I think we'll need to jettison supplies and clothes and things along the way to make room in the car for new and exciting brews.
Erica's pretty excited about writing post cards! email us your address and we just might send you one too!
