Last year, my son moved out west to Portland. It's a long way to be away from one of your very own, but he likes it out there and is happy. What more can a mother want? So... I am making a trip out west to see him. It will be an adventure to me - not ever being out in the Northwest, barely ever crossing the Mississippi, makes this an epic adventure in traveling for me.
A few adjustments to be made - June weather is not the same in the northwest as it is in the southeast. I think I can live with the highs in the 60s and 70s, but no cooler, thank you.
One of the big excitements for me is to travel on several different modes of transportation - stay tuned!
I look forward to posting about my travels as I cross the country and get a taste of a different part of our country.
