My name is Toni Lovejoy.  I am a 54 yr old photographer based in Charlotte, NC.  In 2013 I took my 10 yr old daughter and traveled around the US for a year.  Starting in Iowa and ending in North Carolina.  My 10 yr old is now 16 yrs old and I am making plans to hit the road again once she graduates and goes off to college.  This blog is about the preparations and dry runs that I will be making between now (2018) and then (August 2020).  It is my goal that I will become an expert traveler after some pretty colossal failures (it’s the road to success)  and inspire someone else to bravely conquer a brand new world.  I invite you to come along for the ride!
