Rockin' in the USA

Thursday, June 25, 2009

So we're leaving for the USA tomorrow. Bit scary and wild, but mainly VERY EXCITING!!!!!!!! Here's a rough idea of what we're doing/where we're going:

Friday 26 June - Flying in to LA, hire a car (convertible!!) and drive to Palm Springs, stay 1 night
Sat 27 June - Drive to Williams, AZ and camp for the night
Sun 28 June - Day trip to Grand Canyon with Marvellous Marv (SO excited about that!!), camp at Williams again
Mon 29 June - Drive a LONG way, cross 2 states and 2 timezones (dammit) to Amarillo, TX. Stay in a motel and sleeeeeeeeeeeep
Tue 30 June - Drive to Springfield, MO (we have to go to at least 1!) and stay the night with my friend Colleen's brother and his family
Wed 1 July - short drive to Lake of the Ozarks to stay with our friends who travelled all the way to Australia from the US for our wedding!
Sat 4th July - Celebrate Independence Day, maybe on the lake!
Not sure about the next few days - playing it by ear, but the lake looks like a lovely place to explore!
Thurs 9th July - drive from wherever we are to New Orleans and stay a few days
Sun 12 July - drive from New Orleans through Mobile to visit another friend, then drive a few more hours and maybe camp somewhere
Mon 13 July - make our way to Smoky Bear campground in the Smoky Mountains and spend the night, then explore the next day and spend another night
Wed 15 July - Drive to Washington DC
Thur 16 July - say goodbye to car and explore DC for a couple of days
Sat 18 July - Train from DC to New York!! Stay in NYC for a few days and explore
Wed 22 July - Fly NY all the way to San Diego
Thur 23 July - ComicCon in San Diego (the only way I could get Hubs to the states!!!)
Fri 24 July - Train from SD to LA, then fly out that night
Sun 26 July - arrive Brisvegas 5am, leave 1pm, arrive Melbourne 3pm, collapse in a heap!!

Jealous? :-)

So I'm not sure how much/if I'll get a chance to post much over the next month, but I do plan to have another Nablopomo in August to make up for it! I may even schedule a few posts to pop up, just to keep you entertained! Adios amigos!!
