Road Trip.. 5 weeks of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives & Hotsprings!

Jerry & I will be road tripping across North America shortly.  Bouncing from Diners, Drive-ins and Dives & hot springs, friends and family! We leave May 14ish and we're back June 20th.. Our trip will take us from Peterborough, Ontario, to good friends (Jerry's known Larry since grade one) in Geneva-on-the-Lake in Ohio, then on to Buba's Grill, (owned by a couple we had the pleasure of meeting two winters ago in Mexico while camped on the beach in Bacalar) then we're on to the Grand Canyon, Sedona, and then up to Vancouver, BC to see Jerry's kids for a while, then back into & across the States to see my family in Michigan, then up to Windsor to see my mom, then back home.  
We have started getting the Westy, her name is Prudence, ready.. i should say, Jerry's started getting her ready, as i prepare for more seminars and procrastinate finalizing this terms 90 class marks!   Jerry's been downsizing all of our normal camping equipment so it fits in this new cargo carrier I'm told we need.  You see, we're not pulling the trailer with us this time, as I'm told we won't be able to get into the remote areas we want to find this trip.   So, that means Jerry's had to get all new cooking stuff.  Those of you who know Jerry know that he is an amazing cook and loves his camping cooking gadgets! Jerry now has this fancy camp kitchen station he's trying out on the driveway here.  It folds down to nothing and fits into the new cargo carrier that sits on the trailer hitch...  that I'm pointing to. So, that cargo carrier is all the storage we have for this trip!  All of Jerry's cooking supplies and my cloths have to fit into that carrier (His cooking stuff better not spill over onto my clothes!)! AHAHA!

So, while we to each spot (we being Jerry (driving), Duke (our dog) and I), I'll be working in the office Jerry's creates for me in the back of Prudence.  I've worked that way all the way back from Mexico, to the East Coast and on many other highways .. it's wonderful.. i have electricity & the internet, while Duke helps Jerry navigate!  I'll be busy tweaking my seminars, creating my CDs of seminar highlights and starting my second book!  We'll also be making stops at various Chambers of Commences across the US to share our first book & seminar series package with them!  We will continue to maintain our clients' websites, Google Ad Campaigns & social networks, as we can do that from anywhere!   If YLM's clients need me to do a demo or so, I'll be able to do so via GoToMeeting! Perfect!

The only thing i am worried about is that i am doing a 1/2 marathon in July, and we are planning to hit many of the Diners, Drive-ins and Dives across the US!  I hope the dives we stop at have  salads and the areas we stop at Duke and I can run!  I don't want to come back too well rounded!

I'll be making a lot of posts to this Leveraging the Power of the Internet blog while on the road, as I'll be gathering materials for my second book! The first book is finished with the final editing (thanks to John Hart, my hero) happening this weekend and final cover proof early this week.. should be on my website soon!.   The first book was on how to set yourself up properly on each of your Website, Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and your Blog to be found on Google.. the Second book will be, now that you are on each of these platforms, how do you increase your following meaningfully!  As we are helping a number of companies do just that right now, this second book will be full of excellent examples for Chambers of Commences, Musicians, and Local Businesses.
