counting down the days till the next road trip
What’s up, y’all!
After the most frustrating month of August, we are happy to report that things are moving forward again. We submitted the Fairlady for auction on Bring A Trailer at the beginning of August, so we expected it to be sold by now. That didn’t happen. ☹️
Apparently, there was a long queue of cars waiting to be sold, so though they told us it would only be a two week wait - well, it was not. However, we heard from them yesterday, and they are now ready for the Fairlady! Maybe I’ll have an auction link to share with you by next week, maybe I won’t, but it’s really, really close.

While we were waiting to hear from them, though, we still had plenty of other stuff to do, so we’ve been doing it. I mean, look at that picture up there! Danny is finally going back together, and as gnob reported last week, he found a local treasure trove of pieces and parts that we were lacking for this build.
Seriously. He’s been there three different times now and scored more parts each time.
So it’s getting exciting around here! You know I love to give us arbitrary deadlines, and the latest one is October 11th. That makes today T-29, but I am optimistic that we can pull it off. If we rented our house instead of owning it, and the landlord gave us 30 days notice to get all of our things out and be gone, we would totally get it done, right?
This shouldn’t be any different. We DO really need to be out of here by then. That will give us a full month to drive to Louisiana, and I’m excited about this road trip.
The one we took earlier this year ended up being a mad dash to escape the snowstorm that seemed to chase us both there and back. I suppose that’s what we get for crossing the Rockies in both February and March.😁
This one should have much better weather, so we’re going to take the route that we wanted to do the first time by heading out through Eastern Oregon to visit friends in Idaho. From there, we’ll probably keep heading east to Wyoming before turning south through Colorado to hit Pike’s Peak.
We stayed in an amazing cabin in the mountains of New Mexico on our way home in March, and it’s not too far out of the way, so maybe we’ll get to stay there again. Then maybe we’ll cut across the top of the Texas Panhandle, cross Oklahoma into Arkansas (for the hot springs in Hot Springs, of course) before finally reaching Louisiana.
I just made that route up, except for the Idaho part at the beginning, but that sounds like a great road trip! Plus it’s completely different from the last one, so there will be all new things to ooh and ahh over. What do you think? Have you ever visited anywhere slightly along this route? Recommendations are always welcome in the comments!
Have a great week!
