Road Trip List

I've probably written this list a dozen times but what's one more if I'm already at 12? You know that road trip you (I) dream of taking? It's the one where you just pack your shit into your car (mistyped cat there, I'd fit a lot less into my cat) and take off. Perhaps you don't even tell anyone and perhaps you never come back from whence you came.

Then again maybe you do.

As of January 19, 2010 these are 10 things I'd see on my road trip:

1. Some sort of hometown parade. Preferably with a cup of lemonade and sitting on a curb somewhere in the blazing sunshine. Bonus points for participating Shriners.

2. Falling Water

3. Any Laura Ingalls Wilder location or museum

4. Mount Rushmore

5. The Grand Canyon

6. Baseball and lots of it at all levels

7. Redwood Trees

8. New Orleans and lots of it

9. Art Museums - Chicago, that one in LA whose name escapes me, anything I could lay my eyeballs on

10. A prairie. I want to stand somewhere that I can see only "waving wheat" in all directions.


  1. I'm looking forward to a week in FL, where I think I get to see the Pirates and the Tigers in Grapefruit ball. But I like they way you think, Kizz.

  2. i want to go to there too, with you.

  3. Imagine me with my thumb out standing on side of highway.

  4. It sounds like you want to go to Minnesota; you could fulfill 1, 2, 3, 6, 9, and 10, no problem. (Unless you mean the Frank Lloyd Wright house for 2...Minnesota is no good for that at all.)

  5. I did actually mean the FLW house but that's still a pretty good batting average for MN.
