So over our week long road trip to San Diego in our snazzy Chevrolet Traverse I got a reputation for saying "random" things.   Including calling myself a Douche Canoe while driving along I-5 somewhere in California, and a twitter debate about exit 172, or was that 176?!?. Check our #traversetrip twitter stream for some of […]

So my netbook had a mini breakdown during Blogher. I can't blame it really it was a crazy busy trip with blogging on my lap in the backseat of the Traverse and then all those sessions and parties. The unfortunate result was that I couldn't download any of my outfit pictures after the first day.  […]

Today was the first full day of the Blogher conference.  I attended some great, and inspirational, sessions.  I also took a stroll through the sponsor expo.  And had my photo take with some friends. Well Harrison is a bit too private and gruff to be called a friend, but he was cooperative enough here. And […]

Today was our third and last day of driving to get to Blogher.  It was our shortest driving day, which gave us time to hit the outlets outside San Diego.  So admission time. I didn't even make it past the first store before I went off the plan, laid out yesterday, and bought a cardigan.  […]

So on day 2 of our road trip I've had some time to get over the novelty of a road trip with the girls and start taking some time to think and write. The backseat of the Traverse is very comfortable, with lots of leg room and a smooth ride. So I'm able to type […]

Four women, 7 days, 3 states on a 5,000 km road trip adventure from Vancouver, BC to San Diego California for Blogher 11. Going to be a lot of time in a confined space...  The first day started early, but after a caffeine fill-up we were off. We arrived at our first hotel in mostly the […]

Clearly it made sense to have me be the one to research our best shopping option on our Traverse Roadtrip to San Diego.  A few months I took some requests and based on that we made a couple of our hotel decisions. And then finally this week I mapped out our options along the route. […]

I've been trying to organize a capsule wardrobe to take to Blogher in my head for a week now.  And I keep failing miserably.  The trip includes about 5 days of driving in our Traverse and 2.5 days of a blogging conference. At the conference there will be a lot of walking and  there will be lots […]

The title is a bit misleading because we didn't actually drive a car, but we did crawl all over one. In a few short weeks I'll be driving to San Diego for BlogHer '11 with Karen, Alexis and Nicole.  Since we are going to spend a lot of time in a Chevrolet Traverse we thought […]

I've been on my fair share of road trips with my girlfriends over the years.  But they are mostly in the past, because lately the only road tripping I do is with a full complement of juice boxes, wet wipes, hidden extra toys  and kids music.   Plus I've never been on one of those girls trips where you […]
