San Diego Road Trip

Share this idea!

Lenny and I were fortunate enough – or maybe stupid enough or adventurous enough – to travel from our home in Ohio to San Diego, California and back last summer. We made the trip in our trusty Ford Freestyle, while towing our little pop-up camper behind us. We made many stops along the way, with Colorado and Utah being some of my favorites. Of course, no trip out West would be complete without an extended stay in fabulous Las Vegas! It was an awesome trip, with so many fond memories.

So, why would we travel by car all the way to San Diego? To see our daughter, of course! Kristen is all of 19 and she proudly serves in the United States Navy. She is stationed at Naval Base San Diego. Lenny and I just had to go see her to make sure the Navy was taking good care of our little sailor girl and we had always wanted to take a cross-country road trip, so we did! At some point, I’ll have to share some of our more amusing stories with you – like the night I thought someone was trying to break into our camper and stab me! Yes, I have an overactive imagination sometimes. 🙂

Well, here are a few of our photos from our trip to San Diego.
