We're taking the kids on a road trip.
I've headed south on the I-5 a few times, in my student days. The first trip, my friend and I spent our first night in Mexico sleeping in the car next to an all-night taco stand. The next time, in California for reading break, we had a police incident where it was deemed suspicious that my '85 Ford Tempo was parked in an upscale neighbourhood for the day while we relaxed at the beach. And the final trip saw that same car abandoned just north of the Mexican border and my companion and I hitchhiking back to Canada just in time for the first day of my senior year at university.
So these trips have always been exciting and unpredictable. I'm going to hazard a guess and say that this time, with three kids, we'll just be upping the ante. Hitting California would be nice. I'll take Oregon, though. Okay, Seattle.
Wish me luck!
