Dear Friends and Family,

Tomorrow, September 19th, we embark on an adventure of a lifetime. 

Three months.
Two far from normal best friends.
One epic journey across the USA searching for the most interesting and inspiring stories along the way.

Our goal: to connect and reconnect with our country and those that call this place home.

We will be spending our first weekend outside of Philly before making our way up to Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota and further west. We hope to spend at least a month on the West Coast before heading home through the South in time for Santa’s visit in December.

We have a general plan, but we are really going to take this trip one day at a time and see where Stella, our old Volvo takes us. We plan to stay in hotels and motels as little as possible, so we are traveling with sleeping bags, air mattresses, towels, tents (and lots of laughter). We would love to stay with you if you are able to host us, or maybe we should pay a visit to your great aunt Ida. Thank you to those of you who have already opened your homes to us along the way.

This trip is not just “Cate and Michelle’s” trip. This is OUR trip and we hope that you will join us along our journey in whatever capacity you can. Our website is up and running and we will update it as often as we can. We are also Instagramming, Facebooking.

We encourage you to visit the “HOP IN THE BACKSEAT” section of our website where you can send us ideas, suggestions, thoughts and encouragement. We want to hear them all!

We look forward to sharing our story with you. See you out on the road!

Much love,
Cate and Michelle
