Let’s go on a road trip! Pick 3-4 people—fictional characters, readers/bloggers, authors—you’d love to take on this road trip; a place you’re headed towards like Disneyland, Grand Canyon, Martha’s Vineyard, etc; and what you’ll be doing on this road trip, like topics of discussion, who’s driving, who’s in charge of the road trip music, etc.
Welcome, to the Cross-Canada Chickas road trip! Driving across this country is a little ridiculous and would likely take a million years, but somehow we’ll manage. Since we have a a little magic up our sleeve (see passenger list), we were not only able to do the trip over the summer, but also had plenty of room in our pretty blue SUV…
