Fifty Sites in 60 Days

I’m an English teacher. I work at a low-income, high-poverty high school in the Bronx. It’s be a special year with ongoing fights, property damage and theft, screaming and yelling–your basic school violence. Summer cannot come fast enough. When it does, Kenobi and I are outta here–so long NYC! See you in the fall.

On to an adventure of seeing America, meeting people, and promoting good faith in pit-bull mixes. We love to explore and wander through every park we can reach on foot. Hiking and exploring once we reach our destinations on the ultimate road trip will most likely be the best of our adventure. The regular driving between the points . . . well . . . I’m not sure.

Fifty sites is a lot to hit in 60 days. I’ve see a few–Statue of Liberty, Liberty bell, and White House. Would it be cheating if I skipped these on the trip? After all, the Statue of Liberty is right here in NYC where we’ll begin our trip. We could run out to see her on the weekend. And if I’ve visited others . . . But then, what is the goal, right? To hit all 48 continental U.S. states in two months stopping at a landmark in each using the map created by Randy Olson. Thinking . . .

So, no dogs allowed on the ferry to the Statue of Liberty. Good to know, and another thing to research before starting out.

  1. i think this is the coolest idea, jennifer…i’m sorry your teaching experience is so crazy that you have had to tire yourself out night in, night out…i hope you find peace, at least on the trip…
