June 30, 2008

THE ROAD TRIP

Take five moms, give them a Chevy Tahoe Hybrid SUV, add wireless internet access in the vehicle, a GPS system, cutting-edge cameras and video recording technology, video games, music, gasoline, hotel stays, food, mainstream media covering the road trip on the internet & television - and see what happens as these hilarious and irreverent women drive coast to cost, picking up their fellow SV Moms Group Contributors and blogging it all on the road.....  Seriously, you will NOT want to miss following these bloggers as they make their way across the country, from Northern Virginia to San Francisco.

Here is a video from Katie Couric of CBS Evening News with a few words to Silicon Valley Moms Group mommy bloggers and our mom road trippers:

jodi

How exciting! I'll definitely be following your adventure. Have fun!

Lawyer Mama

Dudes! What will you be doing in Omaha? My parents live there. I may have to force them to come meet up with you & get their pics taken. (-;

kim/hormone-colored days

Have a fun and safe trip!

I hope the car has OnStar-it rocks.

Devra

We will have On-star as well as All American Car-i-oke as given to us by www.momsminivan.com! Maybe the On-Star folk will sing with us too!

Devra

not sure why the url didn't hyperlink, but it's probably my fault. http://www.momsminivan.com let's see if that works. If it doesn't, then I'm out of gas!

Selfmademom

Sounds amazing! Enjoy and I will enjoy reading about your adventures!

the Farmer's Wife

I can pack you a picnic lunch that you can pick up on your way out of Chicago. What do you say?

Holy crap, you all made Guy Kawasaki's blog!

shannanb aka Mommy Bits

That sounds like so much fun. I so wish we had a mom's blog here in the KY/OH area.

Can't wait to follow you.

Meg

Aw quit bragging! A car without a car seat? Where I can choose the tunes? I am bright green with envy!

Have fun, y'all!

If you give me your cell phone numbers, I'll arrange a calling tree to call you guys at 10 minute intervals so we can ask you questions such as:
"Are we there yet?"
"How much longer?"
"I have to go to the bathroom."
"She is touching me. Make her stop."

Just so you'll feel like you are REALLY on a road trip.

michelle lamar

OMG. P.S. Will make a special road trip toon fest if you can download it from itunes. Or maybe I will just send it to Denver as I don't think I can get it done in time before you leave Devra. How cool!

Devra

Michelle, we will be having Zunes in our car. But we could download from itunes and burn onto a CD. What a fabulous idea!

MetroDad

WHAT? No NYC drive-by? C'mon, Devra. Steer that boat up north before you hit Chi-Town.

juls

I am so excited to hear all about the trip! Devra you are going to have a ball!

Kim/hormone-colored days

Love the Katie Couric video!!

Adventures In Babywearing

How fun and sweet was that? And I really would like those shoes.

Cindy La Ferle

Darn it ... Wish you could come to the Detroit area. We've got all kinds of movie stars hanging around in Michigan these days, with the tax break for filmmakers ... Good luck to all! And Meagan, say good things about our Midwest and home state!
