Over two weeks without a post? What’s up?
Fortunately, only good things. We’ve been on vacation! While many bloggers will helpfully post a notice that they are going on vacation, with me all you got was silence and a sudden departure. It’s the vacuuming equivalent of yanking the cord out of the wall rather than properly unplugging.
If you’re a long-time reader, you may recall the Ruly Road Trip of 2010 where we traveled across the country visiting family and picking up organizing ideas along the way. Well, we did it again! A different route this time, a new traveler (my infant son) and new organizing ideas to share.
First, a quick overview:
The route: 13 states in 17 days from Fredericksburg, Virginia to Salt Lake City, Utah and back, crisscrossing the heartland of America.
The travelers: 5, 2 adults and 3 children ages 6, 4 and 11 months
The vehicle: Our intrepid minivan.
The plan: Drive about 500-600 miles per day en route to Salt Lake, stopping at least once per day to see something notable. Chill out with family for one week. Then 500-600 miles per day back.
Over the next days, I will share the highlights of our trip and toss in some travel organizing tips as well as organizing tips picked up from across the country.
Please feel free to add your comments if you see anything you recognize, your own take on traveling and road-tripping or just a check-in to say hello. Here’s to a fun, virtual vacation at Ruly this month!
