We had a fun time traveling across the Midwest. I was able to show Kari the Rocky Mountains (and see them for the first time myself), spend some time with my dad, and enjoy the beauty of our country. A lot has changed since my dad and I visited South Dakota 20 years ago (Custer, SD in particular).
I hope this is encouraging you. I’m not trying to brag, nor am I going to say any sort of worn cliche like “Man, I need a vacation from my vacation.” Just positive vibes all around.
Get out there and travels friends. Pick a point on the map and go. The vacation is the journey, not the destination. I can’t think of a better way to spend your time (and money).
