I had a lovely day of hanging out with my lifetime best friend and being crafty.
BEADS EVERYWHERE!!! i actually didn’t spill them for once! weird.
i did however remind myself why i rarely will make jewelry using thread with beads instead of wire. ITS A PAIN! and it takes forever! i did make a really pretty necklace tho. id post a pic, but i forgot to take one.
it may find its way to etsy someday… if i ever get around to actually putting that store together…. someday i’ll use that account. otherwise, a fairly uneventful day. i really enjoyed it.
i thought about my blog today… perhaps some more background is appropriate…. considering i have little to say about today.
i am currently planning a major road trip… this being said, i’ve already driven from west virgina to idaho since october. stopping at home in ohio and then working for a month in montana. so since the end of october, i have traveled more that 3000 miles. i’m planning on adding another like 7000miles by march. yeah…. my car, i bought last november with 80,000 miles, it is currently at approximately 98,700 miles. oh and i spent over a month in puerto rico last year, as well as just not really driving for 2 months.
yeah, my dog and i, we get around a bit. you would think that after all this, saying, “lets go for a ride” would make her run the other way… but every time, she gets all excited and starts jumping around, and when you open the car door, you can’t keep her out. Shelby is an excellent road trip dog!
|Road tripping with my dog, always looking for new adventures!|
ANYWAY…. my road trip will be after Christmas, leaving Boise and (if i can swing it financially) hitting theTahoe area for some snowboarding and winter whitewater boating…
Absolutely aiming to be in the SLC viscinity for new years eve to visit my sister and a bunch of other awesome people for a few days on a hoity tioty type mountain where i’m going to have to get on skis for the first time in over a decade… i’m sure that will be fun to watch! yes i will post pics!
after Utah, i’m heading east a lilbit to Colorado to bounce around the state and visit some of my favorite snow bums and hopefully do some snowboarding with most of them!
After that I’m headed to LA to visit more lovely people who i haven’t seen in nigh forever… then picking up a good buddy and heading east.
The plan so far after that…is to camp a night on the rim of the grand canyon, visit friends in texas, hit up nola… stop in myrtle beach to see my sister and niece then dropping my bud off in DC for school…
after that… who knows!?
IF i can afford it, i’d absolutely love to add Boston into the mix as well as visiting the other half of my brain, and soon to be best selling fantasy author (her first novel to be published later this month) in Canada before heading home to hang with the fam and work for my dad for a few weeks before heading back to the Cheat Canyon in mid to late march.
i googled the loop, starting with home, entering all of the specific stops i’d like to make, including the maybes (tahoe, boston, cananda) and it comes to approx 10,166 miles. roughly 8.5 days of driving alone. yeah, i think i this may fulfill my goal of big roadtrip… might even satiate the wanderlust for a bit…. maybe… i did afterall get invited to go to Africa for next winter… SO MANY POSSIBILITIES!!!
inicidentally… in case you’re wondering how i can possibly afford this…. technically, i cant. but as long as my dog’s fed and my car insurance is paid, i’m not gonna worry about that. let this be a lesson to you, saty in school… but if you dont… drop out early so you don’t have a ton of debt! ha!
yes, i am aware that im not necessarily a good influence on young people… but you could do worse too.
alright, on that note… i’m going to bed. happy adventures!
