So this weekend I took my first mini road trip by myself. My family reunion was in North Carolina and I live in NJ. I normally fly everywhere if the drive is greater than 4hours....lol!
Also most of my family lives down south anyway. But this time wanted to be adventurous so I decided to take the 8.5 drive myself. Thanks to my dad (who knows every short cut possible), my friends checking in along my drive and some good music, the 8.5 hours each way wasn't too bad. I hit traffic early on in VA going down and then coming back up today in DE (thunderstorm) but other than that everything was okay. I also wasn't nervous at all, except for bridges (as I have a fear of them)...but hey that comes with the drive so I made it through.
I am very proud of myself, because a year ago ,I wouldn't have even thought of driving that many hours by myself.. Yay for me!
