Road Trip: No plans, no destination part 2

 

This is part two of a series of articles on a recent road trip my wife and I recently made, you can read the first part here or the final part here.  We had no particular destination in mind, and no timetable.  We were sure of one thing.  We would stay off the interstate and travel the back roads, looking for anything interesting we thought we wanted to see.
