The Elliott family continues traveling across America and beyond for the ultimate road trip adventure. It’s our third year, baby!

This isn’t just one long trip, but a series of close calls, speeding tickets, last-minute changes, quick flights, overdue assignments, eccentric natives — plus, glorious scenery, historic neighborhoods, capitol buildings and strange food.

Oh, and cute kids and animals.

Our family adventure also has a 21st-century flair, incorporating the latest interactive technologies and social-media applications, from Foursquare to Skype to lots of uploads to our Skydrive accounts. If there’s an applicable technology, we’re packing it.

Well, as long as there’s room in the luggage. (Or our car.)

But the real reason you’ll want to follow us isn’t that we’re interesting or have come up with a new twist on the American road trip — though both are true. No, you’ll want to come along for the chaos.

With three homeschooled kids, two entrepreneurs trying to earn a living, three kitties back home and the inevitable conflicts of being on the road together, you’ll want to check in to read the next chapter.
