Stories of 31 States: Virtual Roadtrip

During the month of October 2016 I will be taking a break from my regular blogging topics to participate in the Write 31 Days Challenge.

31 Days is an online writing challenge…¬†where bloggers pick one topic and write a post on that topic every day in October.

For my topic I’ve decided to take you on a virtual road trip. I have been in 39 or so states during my life, so I thought it would be fun to share a story for 31 of them this month. I had Lyle map out an actual road trip touching each of the states on my list.

I’ll be starting in Louisiana, where I was born… and ending up in Idaho, where I currently live. I’ll be sharing memories, pictures, journal entries, letters, and maybe even a recipe here and there. I hope you’ll come along!
