2009/166: Bonus! Vacation Planning 101

  • Decide where you want to go
  • Plan your route, making sure you can visit some friends along the way.
  • Log on to Food Network’s Diners, Drive-ins & Dives website* and look for “where Guy went”, then go down the list to see what’s listed for the states that your vacation route will take you through.
  • Mark DDDs with a red flag on your map.
  • Take Alton Brown’s Feasting on Asphalt book off the shelf, see what’s on your route, and mark the restaurants with a red flag on your map.

    (* Greg has Guy Fieri’s Diners, Drive-ins and Dives book, too, but it doesn’t list all the restaurants. The website does.)

2009/131: Summer Vacation Plans

That’s right! We’re heading east this year, to New Jersey and New York… and whatever is in between! We’re still working out the details about what to see, but Greg has 17 days off work and that should hopefully give us plenty of time.
First we will be heading to Indiana/Illinois to see my boys. Well, Cameron anyway, and I will finally get to meet my daughter-in-law! Nick may or may not be back. He’s coming to visit us (and then head to Florida) after he graduates in mid June. He said he’s heading back home when he runs low on money.
Then we’re on our way east.  I’m sure this will turn into another DDD tour (aka “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives”, the show on Food Network), which should be fun.
If anyone knows of some great places to see, or fun things to do between Texas and New York, please let me know in the comments!
And of course we’re hoping to see some online friends along the way, too, like Amy, Doreen, and Dalia… and Cheryl, if you want to make the drive down to Illinois.
I can’t wait!!
