PSS...Zoom Zoom

Amy asked a few weeks ago: In honor of the upcoming summer season and considering the high price of gas, most of us won't be taking road trips for a while. So pretend that gas is $2.00 a gallon and describe your ideal U.S. road trip (or one you had in the past that was a favorite).

Just getting back from a trip to Vernal with five kids, including one who hates being in her car seat, maybe now isn't the best time to answer this question. All of my road trips have been with Marcus. We have gone to California a few times, Vegas a couple times, Idaho a time or two, but my favorite road trip is when we drove back to Navuoo to see the temple and go to the temple open house. It took us about a week to get there and get back. We stopped a lot of places between here and there. It was a lot of fun. Marcus drove most of the time; I hate driving in unfamiliar areas.

If I could go on a road trip of my choice, I would like to go along the west coast. I haven't ever been up to Oregon or Washington, and I would love to drive along the coast.

I do need to get out and explore the country a bit more...it was only a few years ago that I painfully learned you can actually drive to Alaska. Who knew it wasn't really a little island in the Gulf of Mexico like all the maps in school make it out to be?! Now that I know those other states aren't really islands, I can't wait to start planning our road trip to Hawaii!!! :)

This one about made me pee my pants! Well, okay, at least I laughed out loud (in a very, very quiet office I might add). That was hilarious.
