We just got back from a long road trip out west….4600 miles worth in an old Dodge Grand Caravan….driving spaced out at the beginning and end of a two-week trip….4 children (no….that’s not really right….two young adults and two children) in tow…..and a lot of the driving was like this.

We were down in Colorado and Texas….but flat and wind swept looks familiar.

Idaho isn’t all that different from Colorado in a lot of ways.

This video was made by a trucker traveling through what I imagine is the southern part of Idaho.

I’m more familiar with the northern part….but I suppose the southern part is pretty flat.

Flat is pretty boring sometimes.

Traveling is hard….and expensive….but it’s like that credit card commercial where they say “priceless” at the end.

I wouldn’t trade our road trips for anything.

I wouldn’t avoid them….for anything.

They’re …..priceless.

When you watch the news after you get home….and realize how much potential there is for bad weather out West in the Winter….you know that we were pretty fortunate to have such clear sailing this time.

I wonder how long it will take us to get out West again?

I wonder if the Post Office will set me free for a while….soon?

I hope so.

And….man….the view from inside a big truck is a trip, isn’t it?

A real trip.
