Published by Xlibris
A day by day account of a woman traveling alone across the country in one direction or the other and what she saw or encountered along the way. Getting in the car and "hitting the highway" is something the author has always loved to do. This book contains personal trip logs of cross country trips from 1996 to the present time and includes a few side trips. The near-accidents, funny signs, how she amused and entertained herself on long boring stretches of highway, some of the places she ate, motels she stayed in, and even the thoughts she had make interesting reading, especially for an "armchair traveler". Traveling through storms or zigzagging between Interstate highways to avoid them and other decisions she made on the road are things any traveler can relate to. Going out of the way in order to travel through country areas never seen before, along roads never previously driven or being on some backroad for awhile were things she did not hesitate to do when the urge came to leave the current route. Fast foods, fast lanes, and fast airplanes yet a leisurely pace prevailed when there was something of interest that required "slowing down" and taking a second look or changing to a different route. An "armchair traveler" will find her trip logs to be both interesting and entertaining.
