Last summer, I had more fun than I ever anticipated taking a summer bloggin’ road trip all over the grand ol’ U.S. of A. I met Kate of A Creative Cookie in Arizona, Paula at Stuff I Tell My Sister in Oklahoma, Becc of TrueBlog! in Louisiana, then headed north to Virginia to hang out with Gwen at The Bold Abode, and meet Mimi of Waiting for the Karma Truck. I made my way as far north as New Hampshire and concluded my trip with Pam of Mercantile Muse. It was a fabulous adventure and I learned so many great things, not only about those parts of the country, but also about my very gracious hosts!
So, I could not let this summer go by without another bloggin’ road trip! But, I am going to do things a little differently this year. Not so virtual and a lot more real. Well, for me at least.
This summer, I am really getting in my car and heading for the highway. I have the best traveling companion around; he doesn’t even mind my singing, and we love to jam to the same tunes. The only downside? This guy is a total back-seat driver. Well, only because CA law requires that individuals under the age of 12 ride in the backseat and you guessed it, my side-kick for PaperKeeper’s Summer Bloggin’ Roadtrip 2013 is none other than The Kiddo.
We are taking it CA Dreamin’ style and you are all invited to ride along! We’re taking the Triumph out on the open road again, the stereo and tires are all tuned up.
We shove off soon and will be updating you with our travel adventures along the way, mobile style. I will be posting from my phone and bringing you along for the ride virtually. All we ask is that you bring good snacks [we LOVE cherry sours and Pringles!] and good tunes.
But, that’s not it…there is more fun to be had…
Sure, you can kick it in the back seat with The Kiddo, or ride shotgun with me, but I challenge you to play along with CA Dreamin’ Travel Trivia! Along the way, questions will be posted and each question will be worth a certain number of points! The person who earns the most points, wins! Actual prizes! CA swag of course! The prizes will be items found along the way as we roll on down the highway. When we get home, The Kiddo and I will review all the answers, and tally up the points and announce the winners! Yes, winners, plural. You will be competing for first and second prize, and a random draw for a third prize among those who jump in and play! You know you want some CA swag…just go ahead and admit it now…
So, pack your virtual suitcase and if you want an easy peasy bonus entry in CA Dreamin’ Travel Trivia, leave a comment with a song we should add to our RTSL: Road Trip Song List! (3 pts!)
Cheerio mates, see you out on the open road!
