For the final project I decided to collaborate with Carlee and we planned a road trip cross country for after graduation! The four types of assignments that we used were design, audio, video and web. I really enjoyed doing this as my last assignment and had so much fun creating all these assignments to go along with our story! ________________________________________________________
This is our last rodeo as ds106 students! The only way we could picture ending is with a road trip to all the places we’ve ever wanted to visit! We have been planning this trip for awhile now using Pinterest, check out our board!
Watch this short video that we created for everyone to see all the places we plan to go.
Here is a map of where we plan to go as well, of course there are many more stops than listed but this is just a general course we want to take.
We are going to start driving bright and early in a rental car from Fredericksburg to Nashville, TN. Along the way we play to see skyline drive and stop for a late lunch in Knoxville, TN which is about 2 hours outside Nashville. Once in Nashville we are going to check into our hotel and then get ready for the Carrie Underwood concert that night. The next morning we are going to wake up and visit the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Grand Ole Opry, as well as explore the city. After a few days there, we will then head to New Orleans where we don’t have set places to visit but I am sure it won’t be hard to fine something to do on Bourbon Street. After some time in New Orleans we are going to fly out to Vegas where we plan to meet Bonnie Sue & Agnus! They just got home for the summer from their first year at UMW and we thought it be so much fun to hang out with them! We gave them a quick call last week, and they seemed all on our board. You can listen to that here!
Here is my plane ticket as well so that we can fly to Vegas, this saves us a lot of driving time so we can do more of the things we want to do!
Once we get to Vegas and meet up with Bonnie Sue & Agnus, I am sure we will hit the casinos and do lots of gambling. After some time there we will drive to San Diego, CA and then drive up the coast of California. Some of the places we want to stop at include LA, Hollywood, San Fransisco and Laguna Beach. We are going to keep driving all the way up the coast until we hit Seattle. I am excited to see all the things we will find and explore on our way there! We are going to spend a few nights in Seattle before hopping back on a plane and going to South Dakota. Bonnie Sue and Agnus are going to head home from Seattle so we will say our good-byes as well!
Once we land in South Dakota, we want to visit Mt. Rushmore and do lots of hiking and camping for a couple days. It’ll be a nice get away from all the traveling and city life. After so much needed relaxation, we will then start our drive home and stop at a few places like Chicago (can’t wait to try a famous hotdog from Portillos) and Boston before making the home stretch back to Fredericksburg.
I am so excited to start our journey across the country, see Bonnie Sue & Agnus and for all the adventure we are going to find along the way!
