I love planning road trips.
I don’t know why, but it’s something I’ve always liked. Especially in this day with everything so accessible on the Internet etc. Next year, I have a few places I’d like to go, including a couple of major geocaching events in Western New York and Western Pennsylvania, as well as possibly another long-weekend trip to Maine in the spring.
I haven’t been to Montreal, either, in more than a year and I’d really like to get back up there. I love that city.
But I’m talking a road trip. Old school. Get in the car and head somewhere with some plans on what to do on the way out and back.
I was watching Field of Dreams on Friday night and going to see the actual field where the film was shot is something I’ve always wanted to do. I once tried it in the early 90s, but my vehicle wasn’t running so well and we got as far as Western New York before turning back. I also didn’t plan well that time and probably would have been in some serious trouble financially if I had made it out that far!
Nowadays with everything you can do, you can plot, plan and think way ahead of time.
I think it would be one heck of a fun road trip. Drive out, play 4-5 disc golf courses (or more), find 40-50 caches in 5-6 new states and check out the Field of Dreams site as well as check out Delhi, Iowa — the sister town of my hometown.
And, if planned well enough, maybe a day game at Wrigley on the way out or back? Oh yeah.
It’s on my mind and something I am going to look into. It might not happen, but it’s always fun to do the research, anyway.
