Today, my husband and I leave for Utah. The photo above shows our destination. One of our sons, his wife, and two children live outside Salt Lake City, and they can’t travel home for Christmas, so we’re going to visit them. We’ll drive for thirteen hours, over a day and a half. My biggest regret with car travel is that I can’t read to pass the time. I get motion sickness if I try to read more than a few words. Such a waste of time.
I usually take notes of things I see or songs I hear, and the thoughts they inspire. In the past, those notes have sometimes been indecipherable because I couldn’t look at the paper as I wrote, but this time I’ve decided to type them directly into my laptop. I type by touch, and though I can only glance at the screen for seconds at a time, I’ll have better luck deciphering my typos than my blind-handwriting.
I’ll also write some blog posts along the way, so you’re not getting a break. Sorry. Right now, blog posts are about the only thing I’m writing, so I have to keep that up. A couple of days after as we return home, our son who lives in Nebraska will arrive for Christmas. I don’t anticipate getting back to the business of writing fiction until January, and by then, I’ll have a long to-do list compiled.
In any case, know that I will be reading any comments you leave on my blog, and I’ll be reading your blogs, but commenting on my end will be slower than usual while I’m away from home. Of course, you know me, I’ll probably be checking for an available internet connection a thousand times a day. If nothing else, I’ll respond via iPhone. Don’t expect verbosity.

“Travelin’ Mercies” to your husband and you as you make your journey.
Thank you, SoulDipper. 🙂
Sounds like a fun trip. I love road trips and agree with Cathryn that a change of scenery/perspective brings a whole bunch of new ideas to the forefront. I, too, have taken notes in the car and then been totally unable to read them later. I can’t read without getting sick either.
Do you have the ‘poynt’ app? We’ve found that really useful when traveling for finding hotels and restaurants.
Well, I am definitely a southerner now, I guess. One look at that picture, scenic though it may be, sent me looking for another sweater…
I have the Poynt app now, Natasha. Thanks for recommending it. The weather, yeah. It was 30 degrees here in Utah tonight, and I was freezing and my son and daughter-in-law didn’t even have on a jacket!
Sounds like fun! We’ll be here when you get back.
Thanks, Trista. But as you can see, I’m gone but not. 😉
