yep…8000 miles. 8000 miles from Cincinnati to the west coast and back again. According to our handy-dandy (seriously the thing is awesome) AAA Trip Tik, if we drive the trip all at once it would take 125 hours and 24 minutes. But, we like sleep, A LOT of sleep, so we’re going to spread it out a little. About 8 weeks or so….
In case you aren’t tracking…Aaron, myself, our two boys and the dog are loading up into a 35-foot Georgetown motorhome and headin’ west! We’re calling it the Radical Sabbatical for several reasons, some of which I will get to in later posts. But here are a few reasons why we think it’s a little radical:
1. Have you seen the price of gas?
2. Did I mention that our children are ages 6 & 5? And that the dog, well, let’s just say she’s sweet and all, but she’s a few fries short of a Happy Meal!
3. Who do you know in their 30’s who does this? I mean aren’t RV’s for retired people?
4 Those kids of ours — one of them is “spirited” and the other needs a serious amount of alone time…and we’re going SOLO (read: NO BABYSITTER) for 8 WEEKS — that’s radical!
Are we there yet?
