Its Tickle a Teapotter week and we are to make cards that make our travel dreams come true - see the challenge HERE
My DH and always dreamed of being able to take off and "see the USA", going from one place to another, to see places we had never seen before. I had a chance to do it that once, about 14 years ago, and took a 2000 mile road trip by myself, and combined it with seeing my boys families, both down south at the time - went down along the coast, Visiting lighthouses and circled back and up through Atlanta and then up Skyline Drive. Taking a virtual trip here, and maybe adding a few more stops to SCSers I have not yet met. Hope my card tickles another gal. Thanks to Celisa for the idea of using a mapquest map for a BG on a card she sent me last year!!!
Wanted - someone to go on a roadtrip and sightseeing!! Apply here!!
EDIT - unfortunately, I do NOT own a motorhome - this is a dream - we could always pool our resources and DO THIS!!!

Your card is fabulous! Love that route and actually road a bicycle through the top part of it, or close! I like how you mapped the route on that card. This is so well done and what a great camper to own huh?

Of all the fabulous trips we have taken through the years our dream vacation will be the year my husband retires we will just set off on the road with no detailed schedule and visit a long list of sites and people we have met. We will start in Vancouver and basically drive a big circle all around US. When we lived in Toronto we saw all of New England and Florida and now we are in Vancouver we have seen all the western states but there are a whole lot of fabulous states in the middle.

OMGosh Sue! I love that I inspired you and this card, LOL! Totally different from the one I sent you, I may have to CASE you now! There are so many AWESOME places to see here in the USA! I've seen quite a few and drove to most of them and with 3 kids to boot! And not in the luxury of a motorhome, but in a full size Chevy Van or our Chevy Suburban! Oh the good old days! That was years ago! But it would be so much FUN to do it again! :D

That was a lot of miles covered for your trip and bet you enjoyed them. Had to laugh when you said lighthouse as had said many times would like to live in one--even for a short time--LOL. Love the layout of your destinations--cute card.

I just love how so many of you ladies are using actual maps of some kind for bg's. It is just so cool. Wow Sue!! You are one brave lady. I'm not so sure I would tackle going about the country on my own. I would want at least one other person with me!!
