one of the first things that crossed my mind when i decided to take on this road trip of a tour is that my dad would be proud. he loved driving the country. come to think of it, driving was the mode of transportation we took for every family vacation funded by my father. i have to admit, part of that had to be because he hated spending money and driving was always the cheapest mode, but the other part was because he loved a good road trip.
that being said, the most important stop that i have made thus far and probably will all summer was to visit his grave at the conception abbey to get his blessing with this crazy hummer. hardest thing i have encountered yet on this trip, but a memory i will never forget and will hold in my heart forever.
let’s be serious, it can’t hurt to have this tour blessed at a monestary, right?! this one’s for you, dad…i know you will be watching.
