The past few months, I've been working on an essay about road trips, about the very American need to drive coupled with the very American belief in the ability to change oneself*. Around the same time, I applied for a grant that would give me copious amounts of money to do whatever I want with, so long as it pertains to my writing.
And I started thinking. I started thinking about taking a roadtrip with the Things. An 8 or 9 week roadtrip, across the country and back, and then I would write a book about it, about the experience. I've started initial plans, and I will likely have a seperate blog/website for it up within the next month. Currently, I'd like to start planning now and be able to do the trip next summer.
So, fan base, what do you think? Give me your ideas, thoughts, comments. Also, if you were making such an adventure, where would you stop?
