Day 1,120 – Thankful for the Road Trips of Others Reminding Me of Road Trips Past

One of my teammates is going on a sweet road trip and the more I was told about it the more it reminded me of one of the first road trips Becky and I went on.

Way back in the day, May of 2001, we took a road trip out to DC to see our baby niece.  It was a short trip, less than a week, but I still look back on it fondly.  The funny thing is that I don’t often think back to that trip.  Once it was puled to the front of my mind I couldn’t help but smile as I looked back at the adventure.

We didn’t have much for cash, the AC in my truck died, and we totally underestimated how long it would take us to get out there and back.  One the way home we got lost heading out of DC within a matter of minutes.  This was especially problematic as we didn’t have cellphones and GPS way back in those dark ages.  Even with the handful of challenges it was a great trip!  I don’t think either of us had any idea just where life would take us adventuring after that one.

Nope, this picture wasn’t from the road trip, but it’s from the same era.  I’m still not sure who these two crazy young kids are!

Thanks to my teammate for bringing back a flood of memories, I appreciate them greatly!
