Well, the dermatologist's office called late this afternoon to tell me that my biopsy was normal. I can't even begin to tell you how awesome I feel right now! Even a big CHEE HOO doesn't seem like enough. Thank you everyone for all of the positive thoughts and kind words. It was so appreciated. Now on to today's post.....

My 26 year old son, Matt, is on a six week road trip with his friend Chris. (They are both teachers) They are on the final leg of their adventure and will be back in Telluride later this week. They drove out to California, up the coast and are currently in Oregon. They took Matt's SUV and it was jam packed with camping equipment, climbing gear, bicycles, a surf board, kayaks, clothes, food and three large dogs. No, I am NOT kidding. Chris's sister even joined them last week for the rest of the trip!

They had no set schedule, just people they wanted to stop and visit and places they wanted to go. I will share pictures and videos with you as soon as I get some.

So, my question is this.....if you had six weeks and a car...where would you go? And no, you cannot say that you would drive to the airport and fly off to some exotic destination. You have to drive!

I know that I would head west. I would take the southern route through New Mexico and Arizona, drive up the California coast to Washington and then take the northern route home. I would stop wherever and whenever I wanted to. I would take side roads and just drive. How awesome would that be.....oh, and MY dogs would stay home.

Now it's your turn....six weeks and a car....where do you go?

Excellent - wonderful news!

I have to think about the 6-weeks question.

So glad you got good news, Kathy!

I would go north to New England, west to Oregon, south to LA, east back to NC. Stopping at every interesting spot and shop along the way. That's probably about 10 weeks though!

I would go see the Grand Canyon!

I am delighted with your great news!

I'm so glad you had a good report!

I think I'd want to go north, then east because we haven't really traveled to those parts of the country. We'd have to take our dogs with us.

I am so relieved about your news too.

And a 6 week driving trip? Since I am in South Dakota...well, can't decide if I'd drive west through Montana and East Glacier Park...to Seattle, then to Portland and down the coast...

Or...east...all the way to the New England States...Niagra Falls, New York city...

Have a creative Wednesday. ~Natalie

I'm so glad to hear your great news! If I went on a 6 week trip I'd love to drive through Northern Europe starting of course here in Northern Ireland! I'd head straight south to get some sun :)
