Next week, I embark on my third cross-country road trip. My father will once again join me as my fellow road warrior. This time we depart from Miami, Florida with the final destination of Northern California. I will be tweeting (and hopefully blogging the 7 day trip) with Papa Inclan.
We are tentatively scheduled to make stops in New Orleans, Houston, Hidalgo, San Antonio, El Paso, Tombstone, Phoenix, Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam, Las Vegas…. What do you think? I would love some suggestions for places to visit in these cities and places along the day…
Papa Inclan is very excited about the trip. In February he retired as a school bus driver and now spends time working in his workshop. He misses driving, and like any father is excited about spending time with his kids. While Papa Inclan has toured every corner of his homeland of Mexico, before our first road trips in 2009 he had only been to Florida (where he resides) and Michigan in the 30 years he has lived in the U.S.
I want to make it a great trip for Papa Inclan. A few things to know about him, he loves Westerns and anything from the Old West. His greatest love (besides his family) is baseball, baseball and baseball. He is the strong and silent type and doesn’t leave home without a large camera (picture of Papa Inclan posted above).
Here are some more pictures from our road trip in 2009: click on the link for more photos….
