BLOG TOUR USA - FAMILY STYLE

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with RealSatisfied

The boys at Sellsius have planned an excellent Blog Tour USA.

blog tour usa family styleNot to be outdone, the Turner family has their own blog tour planned. It begins in Los Angeles on Thursday, June 28 at 4am. And there are LOTS of similarities between the Sellsius Blog Tour USA and our Blog Tour USA - Family Style.

  • They've got two bloggers. We've got two bloggers.
  • They'll be traveling cross country in time for Inman's Bloggers Connect. We'll be traveling cross country AND BACK in time for Inman's Bloggers Connect.
  • They've got a big RV. We've got a big SUV.
  • They'll be traveling with no kids. We'll be traveling with 6 kids.
  • They'll be stopping in 24 cities in one month. We'll be stopping for 24 bathroom breaks each day.
  • They'll party themselves into a unconsciousness each night. We'll fall into bed unconscious each night.
  • They'll be staying in exotic cities like New York, Miami and Las Vegas. We'll be staying in exotic cities like Grand Junction, Lincoln and Plainfield.  

As you can clearly see, Sellsius aint got nothin' on us! :)

Starting on June 28th, we'll be speeding through Las Vegas, Nevada, across Utah, through Denver, Colorado, up through Lincoln, Nebraska, across to Plainfield, Illinois, down to Indianapolis, Indiana, over to Dayton Ohio and on to Grafton, West Virginia. Then, on July 20th, we'll head back through Nashville, Tennessee, Little Rock, Arkansas, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Amarillo, Texas, Albequerque, New Mexico, Flagstaff, Arizona, and back to Los Angeles.  

I'll be updating via photo blog along the way. You can check out the progress here at CA to WV... And Back Again.

SOme of my kids best memories are road trips.  They whined about them at the time but remember them fondly now.  I once took them on a cross country tip and the rules were we would stop anywhere at any attraction and amusement park anyone wanted to stop at.  My 9 year old made me bungee jump with her.  (I threw up alot on that trip)

All... we're on the road, about 78 miles from Las Vegas. You can check out the progress here at CA to WV... And Back Again.

(I just did live video out the passenger window from inside my facebook account. I may have just crossed a geek line I should never have crossed.)

Qtips clean between the keys on your notebook when someone spills!

My parents and three kids used to drive to see friends 20 minutes away and they put this thing over the backseat (where our feet go--no station wagon) and we still were asking are we there yet.  Now that seems like a minute ride.  I look forward to seeing the pics - I am still seeing you stopping on the corner when the gang allowed you a few minutes to photograph that home--I am expecting a lot with your favorite camera.  I like to new picture - much friendlier and accessible.

Joe... thanks. You can keep updated here:  http://ca2wv.blogspot.com/

Chris... I don't know if we'll get to College Station, but if we do, you can count on it.

Cathy... :) I have memories like that as well. Trips that seemed like forever as a kid, then seem like a trip to the grocery store now. Very odd. This, however, is not one of those. This is truly a long trip!

Blue Ridge... I'm really enjoying doing it.  I've got some videos I'll post when I get to a place with more time and bandwidth. :)

Jeff - Throw out a checkered flag as you go through Indy.

We once did a East Coast trip with four children - it was really a great time - how I miss those days, but the memories, oh yeah, that's what it's all about, creating family memories.

It's also a really good lesson in negotiation and compromise.

Best, have a great time!

Hey Jeff,

I tried to post a comment on your other blog but Google is apparently taking today's holiday seriously and keeps claiming that I don't have an email address that I do when I try to log in...sigh.... Anyway I think you are VERY brave to drive across country with your whole family, especially since you have some really little ones!!!!!!!!  (And I thought my 2400 mile trip to and through the northwest was a lot - and I have teens!)

Love the pics and the descriptions on your other blog. Have a safe and happy trip. See you at Bloggers Connect!

You are very adventourous! I thought our 3 week trip last year doing ePRO Workshops through the NW US with a 5 year old was going to be fun (while others thought me daft) and it was a blast! What a nice thing to do for the kids.

If you get as far south as Tucson, drop by! Otherwise we'll see you in SF
