Earlier this summer, my dad and I randomly started talking about visiting Ventura, CA where my great aunt and uncle live-- it's one of our favorite places! One of my bucket list items for this year was to visit two new states, so I thought it would be awesome if we could take a road trip and knock that off along the way as well.
We mapped out three potential routes we could take, and settled on two of them. One took us through several cities where relatives of ours live, so we decided to make that our route coming home, with the route going out to CA taking us through several states new to me!
Once we checked in with family and friends and everyone was free on the right dates (what are the odds of that?!), we finally committed to making the whole trip a go!
Now, the time has come, and we're off on our big adventure tomorrow!
Follow along on social media with the hashtag #radndadventure if you want to see what we're up to. I'll be back when we're back-- no guarantees on posts from the road :)
