On Tuesday afternoon, right as the Fancy Food show was ending in DC, the LGF team made the executive decision to pack up Elby and Sweet Pea and head for the Rocky Mountains so we could participate in some very exciting things going on at the LOVE PAD! Despite this last minute change we were super excited to breathe the fresh Colorado air and start our 29 hour, 1782 mile journey so we packed up Elby and Sweet Pea right away and hit the open road!
A 29 hour road trip may sound horrible to the average sedan road tripper, however when traveling in a spacious 32ft bus armed with loads of snacks (thank you Fancy Food Show!), LOVE, cushy seats, and an iPod we were more than comfortable and antsy to get home!
Our journey consisted of 1,782 miles, 9 states, 5 state capitols, 2 hotels, 1 3am fire alarm wake up call, endless hours of pandora, thousands of bug splatters, and LOTS of corn. Not to mention the many beautiful rivers, bodies of water, and national forests.
We learned along the way that the Virginias are a beautiful part of the country filled with rolling hills, rivers and forests. Also that the country as a whole is constantly under road construction, that St Louis has a hectic freeway system (especially when traveling in a large vehicle), and that kansas has a LOT of corn (along with the worlds largest largest prairie dog).
We were fortunate to be able to see so many beautiful parts of the country but are more than happy to be back in CO where there are snow caped mountains, the sun is shining, and the air is clean!! WOO HOO!
