MIAMI, FL–(Marketwire – August 12, 2010) – What happens when a parenting blogger takes his Miami family of five on a 46-day, 12,000-mile, 33-state road trip across the four corners of the continental United States? He becomes a road tripping expert, of course, and blogs about his young family’s adventures on his parenting web site PapiBlogger.com.
Just days after completing his epic road trip with his wife Angela and kids Briani (1), Elena (6) and Jonathan (10), blogger Manny Ruiz of Miami is releasing his “Best of PapiBlogger Family Road Trip” report. The recap report spotlights many of the best, biggest and most memorable things the family experienced on their trip.
Below are some highlights from the PapiBlogger story that is posted on his web site and includes many photos and videos.
Best Scenic Drive
The Wyoming to South Dakota leg of the trip was both surprising and dazzling, especially because at one stretch just off the road we drove the PapiMobile (aka Chevrolet Traverse) alongside a major stampede of horses. The second most scenic drive was the day we went from Seaside, Oregon to Mount St. Helens and then Seattle.
Most Touching Moment of the Trip
Our family visit to the Ronald McDonald House in Orange County, California really touched our family. After volunteering to help prepare food and hang out with families that are staying at the house because their kids are being treated for grave illnesses, our own children told us they wanted to stay active with the Ronald McDonald House.
Most Unbelievably Cool Moment
Despite flying helicopters over Mount St. Helens and the Grand Canyon and taking a boat ride right near the fury of the Niagara Falls the top votes for best moment of the trip were given to:
- Whale watching in Gloucester, Massachusetts
- Watching “Mary Poppins” in Broadway
- The moment the kids first saw and played with snow in the Timberline Lodge of Mt. Hood, Oregon
Quirkiest Place We Visited
Deadwood, South Dakota. This town looks like the template for every Old West town you see in movies and thrives on the pre-Las Vegas notoriety it’s enjoyed for being the original haven of outlaw gunslingers, thieves, prostitutes, gamblers and every other hell raiser you can dream of.
Best Technology Moment of the Trip
The tech moment of the trip was watching the LeBron James “decision” live on our Sprint Nextel EVO 4G phone. How we saw this announcement so crisply clear on the phone in the midst of Mt. Hood, Oregon was truly stunning and a tribute to the network Sprint provided us to post stories, photos and videos to our blog.
