In the last year Bonnie and Greg travelled over 18,000 miles or 30,000 kilometers trying to stay between the Snow Line and the Alligator Line, crossing both at times. Here is Google’s map of our travels.
We have thousands of photos and perhaps a lifetime of stories to tell. See Google Map.
There and Back Again
The reason for the trip started with attending the American Writers and Artists Inc. (AWAI) FastTrack to Copywriting Success Bootcamp and Job Fair in Delray Beach, Florida following our wedding in Vancouver in September 2016.
We drove across and down America in an 24′ Class C Motorhome we call Classy with stops in Idaho and Colorado related to a video project. With a fair amount of steady driving, we arrived at the event with two hours to spare after the 5,500+ kilometer trek.
The video project took us to the Miami area and Key Biscayne. From there we headed down the Florida Keys to Mile Zero in Key West, since we were in the area.
‘Hey! Wait a minute, Greg! Isn’t Florida across the Alligator LIne?’ you may be thinking.
Why, yes it is. You will find gators near the ocean in the South East and along the Gulf of Mexico.
For the record, we preferred to avoid places that alligators like because of the humidity. Bonnie once lived in the Mojave Desert in California and I grew up in Lynn Valley, where you had to move out of the valley to learn that the sun did not always set at 4 pm and that cool cloudy rainy days were not the norm in other places!
Skipping ahead a lot, check out a fabulous video montage of San Diego and Southern California.
