Enjoy a tour through my crazy plan to pack my husband, our two cats, and all the necessities of life into one Toyota Prius for a multi-month driving trip around the United States.
We had discussed extended vacations before, but there were always questions. Could we afford it? What about our jobs? Don't we need somewhere to live? Where would we keep our stuff? What about the cats? And, really, aren't we too lazy for this sort of thing?
Our 2008 move to Portland provided a perfect opportunity for travel. Many of our questions (jobs, house, stuff) became moot. With a little planning, I was sure we could compensate for the rest.
This is the story of how we drove 16,800 miles, visited 25 destinations, and spent 153 days on the road with our cats--all while sleeping in proper beds and never getting up before 8:30 AM.* We did it, and so can you!
* (Except for the two days when we saw a Space Shuttle launch and visited Red Rock Canyon at sunrise, respectively, and those were both totally worth it.)
