To those who’ve gone before

New Gypsy Trip TagIn keeping with the spirit of roadtrips I wanted to share with you some of the websites I’ve come across in my online meanderings while preparing for this trip. I haven’t found anyone else who has camped their way across the country though. Pansies. 🙂

  • We aren’t looking for love, but this reporter sure was.
  • This husband and wife pair converted their minivan into a camper. Creative, but Amanda and I aren’t that comfortable with each other.
  • These two have a map and everything on their website.
  • Read these observations of an 11-day roadtrip across the country. (I think the trip made him slightly bitter.)
  • Pay special attention to the last paragraph of this film scout’s blog post. He has us re-mapping our entire trip!
  • Smithsonian Magazine posted a (rather long) nice story about the “Great American Roadtrip.”

I’m something you don’t see every day: A person under 80 who walks around with oxygen everywhere she goes. I have Sjogren's Syndrome, an autoimmune disorder which, with the help of my stubborn refusal to go to the doctor, caused some pretty deep damage to my lungs. My lack of breath slowed me down for a while, but I'm back to adventuring - just with Gus, my little oxygen tank, in tow. This year's goal is to complete the 52 Hike Challenge and get myself into a healthier state of being. Join me on my quest to become oxygen free!


  1. It is a crime to say anything in Smithsonian Magazine is "long"! 🙂 I can't wait to hear the tales from this trip.
