22 days until we move cross country to the Hemlock Inn! I’ve been plotting out our route using Roadtrippers. I added our start and finish points and then a few crucial stops in between. It’s still moving around but the whole trip is planned around visiting Lindsborgh, Kansas where my grandfather’s old farmhouse still stands and 2 of the presidential libraries on the trajectory back down to North Carolina.You can click here to see the itinerary. Let me know if there’s any place you think we should stop (as long as it’s not too far out of the way….northern states will be another summer!).
A few cool things about Roadtrippers:
1. It plots the most efficient route and when you add new destinations along the way it’s easy to drag them into chronological order and everything recalculates.
2. You can zoom in and see what sites are nearby and click through for more info. It’s easy to click and add to your trip or to your bucket list:
3. Each site even has a “rad-o-meter” that tells you if it’s worth stopping:
4. The blogs. That’s how I found this amazing timelapse of the Albuguerque Balloon Festival:
I also like Roadside America. Mostly because I am a huge fan of offbeat tourist attractions. I also just love wandering and exploring abandoned places.
Oh, and I still have to have a BIG paper map or over-sized atlas.
What was your favorite road trip or one you can’t wait to take one day?
