And So It Begins (Again)

On the road

It’s 8:45am in Tampa, FL.  We just got done with a run and are having breakfast before we head out on the road again.  Today we are headed up the Gulf Coast for Pensacola.  The road trip is in full swing today!

Just finished a run in Tampa

Gerri & Phil on the road

This trip is going to take us over 7,000 through 18 states, all the time zones and countless amazing sights.  My fiancé Gerri and I are moving from Miami to Denver but we’re going all the way to Seattle first and backtracking to Denver.  You can read about our adventures leading up to this point HERE.

We technically started our road trip in Key Largo a little over a week ago.

We thought it would be fun to kit the Keys one last time and figured we’d start from there.  We had to take a little break to finish a couple work things though and we resumed our trip on Cinco de Mayo.  We flew back from New York around 3pm and were on the road by 5pm.  We drove across Tamiami Trail through the Everglades to Naples and then up I-75 to Tampa.

The Brooklyn Bridge

It hadn’t occurred to me until just yesterday that my grandfather’s road trip in 1937 as well as my recreation of that trip in 2010, also began on May 5th!  That’s pretty awesome!  Anyway, gotta get back on the road.  More to come…
