I want to go on a road trip really bad. Like, really bad. I imagine reading John Steinbeck’s Travels with Charley in Search of America each morning and belting out fantastic 80s songs amongst the mountains in the afternoon. I want to sample fine German cuisine in Milwaukee, hike through the Grand Canyon, and explore the wineries of the Napa Valley. I want to visit all the restaurants I saw on the Food Channel’s’ Best Restaurants in America, and judge for myself whether Taco Taco Cafe really does have the best Mexican food, and whether the best pizza is really to be found in Phoenix, Arizona. I want to go to that crazy “largest ball of yarn” a la Brian Kell somewhere in the middle of nowhere, and meet endearing strangers on the train. I’m going to plan something fabulous for winter break, and another something fabulous for the summer, since Warwick is right–I’ll never have 3 months of free time any other time in my life, unless I really do go back for my PhD, or I retire. But yeah…needless to say, I’ve been getting megaroadtripenvy from my new favorite blog, Wanderful. I’m in love with their RV, and the fact that they love Wawa as much as I do.
