When the Wetzlich family (Scott, Wendy, Evan and Brock) hit the road this summer, it was for for the long haul: six weeks on a cross-country tour of America. Wendy’s blog is a nicely written chronicle of their adventures, complete with a final tally of the cost.

I wish I had known about it sooner (just saw a note about on a travel writers listserv called MediaKitty). I would have enjoyed following the daily entries. But I still liked reading them after the fact. Count me among the people who react to her adventure by saying “I wish I could do that!”
