The day we graduate from college (which will be in about 3-4 years), Jess and I are GONE! Here’s our trip:
We’ll start in Salt Lake City (cause that’s where we live)
drive down to Zion National Park
From there we will make a stop at the Grand Canyon.
After that we will drive down through New Mexico (we may make a stop in Farmington to see my cousins but it seems unlikely seeing as they are so far north of our route.)
From there we will go up to Colorado to see this:
We will make detours along the way (cause that’s who we are) and most likely sleep along the side of the road in my minivan (if it hasn’t passed on by that time).
On our way through Texas we must try the famous Blue Bell Icecream
While we are in the south, we must also have the Southern classics!
Real Southern BBQ
That’s just to name a few. Once we reach Oklahoma City (we will be singing the song until we throw up) We will find a professional noodler to keep us from dying when we wade into chin-deep water so we can stick our arms into a catfish nest, wiggle our fingers around so it will swollow our hands, get a firm grip on the gills, and drag that sucker out, and bring it to shore!
We don’t want to die, so we’ll need a pretty big pro noodler to help us… not die.
From Okie we’ll make our way down to the land of Jazz, New Orleans!!!
We will be staying at the Hotel Provincial – One of the most haunted hotels in New Orleans (and that’s saying something for New Orleans)
We’ll stay there as long as we can afford, room rates start at $79. This is why we are going to have to start saving up now.
Our Route back has not yet been planned out, but we’ll take a different route so both trips will be an adventure.
