I'm excited about our summer travel plans--I've got trips planned to Waxahachie, New Braunfels (both in Texas) and to New York City and Washington, D.C.
While traveling, it's always important that you have maps and guidebooks. BK (Before Kids) we used to lead friends in small caravans over the historic Mojave Road, which crosses the California desert between Needles and Barstow. The Mojave Road Guide, by Dennis Casebier, is the definitive guide, with mile-by-mile narrative. You can still travel most of the Mojave Road today, but some areas we were fortunate enough to see are now off-limits.

Of course, it's always nice to come back home:
