FUN FACTS: GETTING STARTED WITH LANDSCAPES

accomplish 1

Ahhh…that feeling when you accomplish a goal…!  I’m now 1/4 finished with my website’s FUN FACTS Category!

I’ve shared in my blog called, ‘Backstory of the Bullet Points’ (which you can find in the Introduction of the FUN FACTS category) how I came to the decision to create a category on my website that would provide a few tidbits of information that might potentially help make any Road Trip more meaningful and enjoyable.  It was an easy decision to make as I watched Eddie go into an ‘information-overload coma’ in Arkansas, and where I too had been feeling overwhelmed.

Maybe cramming info about antique car stats, Elvis’s childhood, the Civil War, the War of 1812, the history of the Grand Ole’ Opry, and the height of the St Louis Arch all into one trip was a little too ambitious, but I am, I thought, an information junkie.

What I have learned about myself, however, is that even though I want to know something about everything, I don’t need to know everything about everything!  Eddie is happy with just a little about everything and I think that most people fall in somewhere between the two of us.

There you have the idea for the FUN FACTS category on my website.  Minimal amounts of information in a ‘bullet point’ style that is simple to access, quick to read and easy to remember.

I pondered the most common types of information that you encounter on a Road Trip and ended up with these 4 sub-categories:

HISTORY * LANDSCAPES * RELIGION * ART & ARCHITECTURE

There will be about 9 blogs in each FUN FACTS sub-category and these will stay available and easy to find for anyone wanting a few pieces of information in any of these areas of interest.

And now all 9 blogs in ‘Landscapes’ are available.  Whew!

 These are the 9 Landscapes you can find information about:

FORESTS * DESERTS * PLAINS * CANYONS * MOUNTAINS * RIVER BASINS *

GREAT LAKES * COASTLINES * WETLANDS

I started with the Landscapes sub-category because on our first trip to the Rainforest in Washington State, I learned just 5 fascinating things that made the Rainforest come alive to me, and that’s all I needed to know!  That was so awesome that I wanted to tackle Landscapes first.  My goal is for you to have just a little knowledge about any of the 9 Landscape types that you might find yourself in, and have that area come alive for you as well!

As you head into the natural wonders you will encounter on your next Road Trip, be equipped with a little information and  prepared to spend sometime in awe!
