Rooooaadd Trip!

What started out as a lonely drive to Ohio and back is becoming quite the road trip!

Saturday night I leave for New Mexico to pick up my Tucson friend Hunter. He left yesterday to visit his grandparents there. We will leave from New Mexico early in the morning Sunday headed for Columbus where his other grandparents live.

Of course we will be geocaching on the way. However, he hasn't geocached before - and we have a time limit...So I'm only setting my sights on one cache in each sate. I do have more than one planned in each, just in case I don't find one! I'm not going to tell you what caches I have planned... because I need something to blog about! So you will just have to wait and see!

On the way we will be stopping in Indianapolis to see my friend Jessica. I can't wait to see her! I'm bummed it will only be for a little bit :-/ But I am happy to have the chance to see her!!

After I drop Hunter off in Columbus, I'm headed to Cincinnati. The GOAL is to be there late Monday night. We'll see. I have until Tuesday evening to get there - but it would be nice to get there Monday and have a second or two to catch my breath before heading off to the Bahamas Wednesday morning!!

My Best Friend is getting MARRIED! So exciting... and the reason for the Bahamas.

When we return from the Bahamas I have two days to visit my friends, hang out with my dad, geocache and get my hair cut! I'm thinking Its going to be just above my shoulders. As short as I can, but long enough to cover my tattoo when my hair is down. Anyway. Those two days are going to be hectic. I just know it.

The Friday and Saturday before I leave are wedding receptions (a formal, and informal one). Super excited - but not going to lie... I have to give a little maid of honor speech and I'm nervous about it. She is my best friend and I have a lot to say... but I know I will start crying ... so I better keep it short and sweet.

No. I haven't written anything. Yet.

Sunday I leave to come back to AZ...and guess who is coming with me!? Theresa! She is a fellow blogger and geocacher (and Ohioan).... so I hope to get a lot of caches with her on the way back to AZ. Then some more when she is here! I'm very excited to meet her and have her drive back with me!

I think I'm going to dub this trip "The Internet Friend Road Trip / Tiffany's Wedding Extravaganza" I met Hunter on Flickr and Theresa on (Twitter or her blog I cant remember). I also I hope to meet the Kyle (TheKman) for a geocache or two while in Cincinnati!

I will try to blog when I have Internet access... IF I have Internet access. If you don't her from me while I'm gone... I'll be back in action on the 1st! Be prepared for PICTURES !

  4. If you two are passing through Kansas City on your way home, give me a holler. I'll take you guys around to a few geocaches in the area (if I'm in town...I have my own trip this coming weekend).

  6. LOL that's funny you can't remember...because I can't either :) When I tell people about this trip and they ask how we know each other, I'm always like "Oh, either Twitter or just reading each others' blogs. I don't remember!" Haha...it'll be a good trip :D
