Librarians and teachers! Parents and friends!

Join us for the ultimate road trip!

From September 2022 to August 2023, our family of six (plus dog) is traveling to every US state—spotlighting our country’s hidden treasures, historical landmarks, cultural curiosities, culinary delights, and off-the-beaten-path communities.

We’ll be posting as we go, offering a window into our adventures.

  • Matthew will share photos and daily essays about our travels.

  • Robbi will post sketches of the people we meet and the places we see.

  • Our daughter Alden will make videos that offer the kid perspective.

  • We’ll host weekly livestreams to report on our adventures and answer questions.

Whoever you are, take your seat on the bus!

Our adventure is your adventure. Our country is your country, too. Follow along with us!

Robbi and I are heading to your fair city on Sunday for a busy week of back-to-back school visits. We’ll be doing many presentations, various lunches, several dinners, and an evening meet-and-greet. (This is where you come in.)
 
Should you care to meet us or greet us or give us a hug, we’ll be at the Glenside Library in Glendale Heights from 3:30-5:00pm next Tuesday night (Feb 27), meeting and greeting and hopefully seeing you.
