My wife @busyphilipps is working in Charleston all summer so the whole fam is moving there. She flew with our baby, but I thought it would be fun to drive my 6 year old daughter. I was not wrong. Below is a list of my favorite things from the trip - which if you know me at all not surprisingly consists almost entirely of hotels, coffee, and food.
  1. The Tesla Supercharger network

    Only putting this first to explain the route we took. To use the Telsa Superchargers from LA to Charleston you have to go up to Denver then take Route 70 most of the way, then head South from Indianapolis. Anyway - I could write a 10k word essay on how this trip changed the way I drive and think about driving, but suffice it to say it was awesome.
  2. Oddly Correct in Kansas City

    Serious coffee - as good as anything I've had anywhere.
  3. Blackberry Farm
    0150fbda 733a 441a 8676 63fa54e55729
    I could post 300 pictures from this farm/hotel/restaurant in Walland, TN

    Sorry one more these Rancheros were the best I've ever had
  5. 21c Hotel in Louisville
    Dd23b9c3 700e 443d 8143 3a3b1d70e319
    A hotel that is also a 24 hour museum. We stayed in a room called "Asleep in the Cyclone" which was designed by one of the artists.
  6. Cart-Driver in Denver
    4b7421ad bcad 4c10 867f 7b150a167eb2
    Amazing pizza in a 600 sq foot storage container
  7. Gralehaus in Louisville
    4cbe14bf 716d 4506 9da6 b3036b89815e
    Great breakfast and coffee. That's an egg biscuit sandwich, a Speculoos crepe, and a pretzel croissant. Yeah, a pretzel croissant.
  8. My daughter being such a badass
    Ec320bfa 939e 4af4 97c2 cc598f6a8455
    Driving 8 hours a day and away from her mom and sister she was nothing but fun and energy and willingness to try anything.
