Cars and Tents and Roads...Oh...Manic

Quick little post here.

For this year’s family reunion in Georgia, Mariah and I are going to drive out and back.

Yes…we are driving and the kids will be flying. Ain’t no way I am driving 5,000 miles with all that fighting and pushing…hell no.

Anyway, we will be leaving Los Angeles towards the end of June and driving (pretty much the whole way) along the 10 freeway. Through Arizona, New Mexico, Northern Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Tennessee.) For the return in early July, we will be touring around a bit through the southern states (Savanna-GA, Mobile-AL, Baton Rouge & New Orleans-LA, Little Rock & Fort Smith-AR, Oklahoma City-OK, Amarillo-TX, Santa Fe-NM and then heading over to the Grand Canyon.

*** and we will be camping the whole way (in tents…with drinks and campfires…well..no fires in the tents.)

Well at least that is roughly what we are planning.

Here is what we need from you all.

If any of you have suggestions of places to see, cool campgrounds or things to do along our route…PLEASE LET US KNOW!
Additionally, If any of you live anywhere near our route and would like to have a few cold beers or a glass of wine…and meet us….PLEASE LET US KNOW!

We are kind of doing this trip blind and will get to where we get to. Mariah is not letting me …do my thing and make charts and lists and all that shit. So please….I AM BEGGING FOR YOUR HELP HERE.

Well u know I'm not big in the camping scene, but if you find yourselves in SC, I have 2 open bedrooms. Only one has a bed though so u could pretend u were camping. Lol!

Oh my god. In the small chance you change your mind and need a 4 or 5 star hotel somewhere along the way, MAYBE only then I could be of some help.

Aside from that, I'm still thinking about why our pee is hot in your side bar....

I am not after any questions about unlocking an Iphone, which I am sure it was addressed many times before. I am interested to know if, with the same Iphone, someone could travel in different european countries using the official provider for that specific country. Otherwise the only option would be roaming which I am sure it is very costly and not very convenient on a long term basis.
