are we there yet?

♫ all my bags are packed, I'm ready to go ♫

the anticipation is over
we are finally read to go
from Georgia to points west on
that long and winding road

backpacks and hiking boots
brought out of hiding
trails mapped to glaciers and geysers
sunshine on my shoulders makes me high

following in the footsteps
of explorers and tree huggers
down country roads
and under wild Montana skies

counting stars
from camping chairs
by the campfire listening to the
sounds of silence

iconic western mountains
with presidents cut in stone
and close encounters of aliens
they need wide open spaces

truck pulls our home on wheels
food and clothes and bed and books
even the kitchen sink
see the USA in a Chevrolet!

snippets of songs
play in my mind on my
road trip mixed tape

♫ on the road again
just can't wait to get on the road again ♫

Our 5 week Wild West Road Trip a.k.a. sabbatical begins now! Travel along with us, check back for updates and pictures often, we'll see y'all later!
