The Road Ahead.us

Renewed, Refreshed, Inspired, Retired

About

theroadahead.us

Married for more than 30 years, employed within the corporate world for over 40, we decided in the fall of 2019 that the time was right to embark on the lifestyle we had envisioned ourselves living in our “retirement” years. Healthy, active and fit, we had always imagined ourselves traveling the United States by car (or RV), absorbing our country’s beauty and delighting in the differing cultures and people from one region to another.

We decided on the name “The Road Ahead.us” because despite our best-laid plans and our wildest dreams, you never know for certain what lies on the Road Ahead. Nothing could have proven that more than the March 11, 2020 declaration of COVID-19 as a pandemic. Circumstances changed rapidly and within two weeks, travel was curtailed and #stayathome orders issued in most of the states in the U.S.

These are unprecedented times in our nation and our world. Our hearts go out to every family impacted by the novel coronavirus and our prayers are for them and for our state and national leaders who continue to make difficult decisions.

Checking In

One of the first questions we asked ourselves after COVID19 brought a “new normal” into our world was how do we continue with our dream of road tripping across America when travel was curtailed. We noticed that many of the people we follow on social media began sharing photos and stories of past trips. We will be doing that, however, we wanted to find ways to make #stayathome an adventure as well. The Road Ahead.us is not just about travel, it’s about choosing to live our best and most adventurous life regardless of what lies on The Road Ahead.us.
