BBQ, a favorite meal on our road tripsĀ 

Not really a road trip this time. Hubby and I are attending a class related to his work. I think I’m the only spouse there but because it has to do with stress and suicide from stress (family and work stresses) he asked if his wife could attend. They were totally floored by his request and thrilled to have me attend. No one had ever brought a spouse to the nationally recognized class.

But enough of the serious talk for now. It’s lunchtime. 

On to the topic of BBQ. Hubby looked up this resturant online. This is amazing because he only has an old Razor “flip phone”. No quick online search for him. Hahaha.

BBQ 152 in Gilroy, CA.

A little slow because people who ordered after us got their food first but otherwise good. I wish the meat had a little more flavor without the sauce. It was moist and not dried out like some places. 

We are headed back to class with full bellies. 

I love that my husband shared so much with me. We are a team, after all, I am his shotgun rider!

Air Jordan, pizza!

My absolutely favorite pizza is an hour drive away for me. Oh it’s so worth it. Pizz’a Chicago in San Jose, CA. I first had this pizza over 20 years ago. Hubby brought me dinner one night and I was hooked.

The Air Jordan is a simple deep dish cheese, tomato, garlic and basil pizza. It’s the lightest “airiest”, if that’s even a word, pizza I’ve ever tasted or seen. 

The decor inside the resturant is full of signs and sports memorabilia. We try to make the trip every few months or so. It’s just so worth it. 

Today we sat outside in the shade. Puzz’a Chicago is located in a small strip mall next to a bakery.   

I am only able to eat one piece but it makes for an awesome before bedtime snack. 


The countdown begins

Only 55 days until The annual road trip. As a complete change from our last 2 summer trips, we have reserved our landing spot for the evenings for more than half of the nights we will be gone. Another change is that we’ve booked a lot of cabins. We usually tent camp most of the trip. However I cannot resist the cute little log cabins and yurts. Do you know what a yurt is? I didn’t until I started looking for camp grounds for this trip.
We are staying in one for 2 nights outside of Victoria, Vancouver Island, Canada. On the beach. It’s supposed to be during the Orca migrations too. Could this location be any better. I can only hope. 

Hubby has also planned a few surprises I can’t wait to see. One surprise he already told me about was a cabin in Yellowstone National park on the lake. I can’t wait to see the sun go down while sitting on the porch in the rocking chairs. Our Yellowstone days were some of my all time favorites last year. 

Back to what a yurt is. As it was explained to me, it is a softsided cabin. A step up from a tent, but not quite a has a bed and sometimes a small refrigerator and table. The one we booked in Canada looks amazing. I’ll be sure to take lots of pictures. 

Wow, 55 days left to map out the rest of our trip. I wonder how much is going to change between now and then. Like most women I can’t stick to any plans until it’s too late to make changes. Oh well, that’s the life of a shotgun rider I suppose. In reality, I only make the navigation suggestions. Hubby is the one sailing this ship.
