I can identify. My dh and I hope to leave sometime in September for a treck up I-35, from Texas, up to where it ends in Duluth, MN. I have an online good
friend there that I've known for about 7 years now, and am finally going to meet her family in person.
My dh is trying to figure out what good campgrounds are along the way for our travel trailer. Me, I'm going to be trying to figure out what good yarn shops are along the way! Being a new knitter this year, this is a first for me, too.
