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!
