If I could take my family on a road trip anywhere it would be to the East Coast. It would have to be a very long trip because I would want to spend several days in every area. I'd like to start in New England. When I was a teenager my mother had a subscription to a magazine and there was a column written by Gladys Taber (I have no idea how I remember the name - it was 50 years ago). That column was so descriptive of the area in all seasons. I think she lived in either Maine or Vermont. I even thought her description of being snowed in for weeks during the winter was wonderful.
Then I would have to stop at all the historical cities, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C. and on through Virginia and into the Carolinas.
As long as we were in the general area I couldn't miss spending some time in Georgia where a noted art center bears my maiden name. I wonder if I would find any long lost relatives there.
A detour through the beautiful Smoky Mountains would get us headed back toward the midwest and home. I've had this dream for a long time. Perhaps some day I can convince my grandchildren to do all the driving and I'll get my dream road trip.
