My drawing & draft itinerary 2017 road trips

*
I drew this when I was 11 years old; read about why & how here:
http://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/2.../friday-fun-6/



An iteration of my former car family; of these, I still have 1, which will get antique plates later this year:

While my car family is much smaller now (& will be further reduced when the 1979 Caprice Classic sells), I am much happier with my current car family, particularly my 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis:

The 1st try at working remotely did not succeed, but I am committed to finding a way, with a 2nd program & attempt this week. While I am frustrated at having to be back in IL the 1st week of each month [& some other times, like for my tentative 05/11/2017 appointments with specialists at Northwestern in Chicago] due to prescription refills, obligations-tasks, etc., I am looking forward to stepping further out of my comfort zone to road trip & work my part-time job. I hope to meet many of you along the way!

Draft Itinerary, my 2017 road trips, dates-times TBD:

FEBRUARY (last ~1 week)
southern IL & into KY, TN

MARCH
southwest
(including Route 66)
MO, KS, OK, TX, NM, AZ

APRIL
southeast
(including Dixie Highway)
KY, TN, NC, SC, GA, FL, AL, MS, LA, AR

MAY
northwest
(including Lincoln Highway & US RT 20)
IA, NE, CO, WY, UT, NV, ID, OR, WA, MT, ND, SD, MN, WI

JUNE
northeast
(including Lincoln Highway & US RT 20)
IN, MI, OH, PA, NY, CT, MA, NJ, VA

Oh my gosh ... I had to re-look at my drawing a few times to see what you meant ... LOL! Then, the second I spotted it, I burst out laughing! Hmm ... perhaps I should try for some royalties?

AWESOMELY! I so cannot wait to be able to get it out on the road more than I already have to MI & back. If I'd get better (been sick this week), I want to be testing the remote working setup a bit more before making definite plans for this year. If that test trip happens, it'll be to southern IL, etc. HOPEFULLY sometime this week!
