On Friday morning, Kyle, Madigan and I will be piling into the Subaru and driving to North Carolina to say good-bye to my brother who is deploying next week.
Since this happens to coincide with my last spring break as a master's student, we thought we would go ahead and make this a real vacation!
We've been plotting out some fun stops using one of my favorite websites: Roadside America. Check them out for all kinds of bizarre museums, landmarks, and strange sights along the highway!
