48 State Postcard Project
We have come up with a new way to have fun with our road trip: The 48 State Postcard Project.
First of all, we’re going to try to hit all 48 contiguous US states on this trip.
Secondly, we’re going to send a postcard to each of our nephews from every state we visit.
We don’t live near the boys and don’t get to see them often enough—we look forward to visiting them in Tennessee and Minnesota on this trip! (Unfortunately, we don’t have room in the Mini to buy them presents on the road: we’d have to throw out something to make room, like our clean underwear, which might not bother Neil but would be a problem for me.)
We’d love to find ways to be a cool uncle and aunt to T. and B., who are very cool young men in their own rights. We’re hoping that the postcards can be a way to share the adventure of the trip with them (and double as a geography lesson, too).
We just bought our first postcards today, which means we’ll have to double back and get postcards from New York, Pennsylvania, and Maryland when we head back to Richmond to grab our suitcase of warm clothes in the fall. That’s okay: our nephews are worth it!
If you have a suggestion for the ultimate postcard from the state you live in, or states you’ve visited, let us know!
