What I have randomly done in the past week or so…driving…my cousin got a job in Kansas City, so he was going to drive out there, I decided to come along for the ride because I was bored and I know a pretty cool chica out there.
First leg of the trip from NH to Kansas City, MO with an overnight stop in Cincinatti, OH (24 hours)
Monday- I drove to CT, spent the night purchasing the car we were going to use to drive there, cuz who doesnt wait til the night before you leave on a 22 hour roadtrip to buy their car.

Tuesday- we left for Kansas City. It was a lot of driving but also a lot of laughs.
(I-70 where I spent way to many miles)
Things we saw and happened included:
Things we did not see included…any significant road trip landmark…FAIL
(looks exciting doesn’t it)
Wednesday- Arrived in KC around 4pm after time change and 11 hours in the car, obvious first stop Walmart Midwest style
I then spent 3 days in Kansas City with the lovely Katie and her roomies who gave me a wonderful couch to sleep on!
(Katie and I)
I also got to spend like 4 hours in Nebraska furniture mart completely decorating my cousins apartment, plus walmart and bed, bath and beyond, spending other peoples money is a skill I have!
Saturday- Airplane ride to Cleveland then to Bradley Airport in CT (4 hours)
Car ride up to a family party in Fairfield, CT (another hour or so)
Celebrated my uncles 50th bday with plenty of good food, wine and family fun! During the night, as I do, I randomly offered to drive a different cousin back to college the next day!
Sunday-Trip to the University of Delaware (3 hours)
Then I got to spend a night pretending to be a freshman in college again, by that I mean I hung with my cousin and her friends who seemed pretty cool, got some delicious dinner, checked out the U Del campus a bit and prob pissed of her roomie for randomly crashing without asking.
Monday- Ate at IHOP and a long drive back from Delaware to NH and finally arrive home (6 hours).
A total of around 35+ hours in less than a week hitting 13 different states and rode in 6 cars(including random trips around KC) and 2 planes during the time. I would say it was a successful trip for sure…except that stupid speeding ticket…
