One Last Ride for Carlee & Jenna

Howdy ya’ll! Hope your semester is ending nicely and you can see the light at the end of the tunnel! Only one more day of finals!

For my DS106 Final Project, I decided to team up with Jenna. We created a cross-country roadtrip that we will embark on to celebrate graduating & finishing this class together! We used forms of audio, webpage, design, and video to create our project.

Lineup

Here is our “lineup” for our journey! I am a huge fan of music festivals, and after creating this I realized how similar it looks to festival lineup posters. 🙂 Anways, thought it looked cool, and we used Canva to create this. We have been working on a Pinterest board to illustrate/plan out all the places we wish to go, and if you want to check it out, here it is.

We created a video so we could visualize the places we will go.

Here’s a map of our road trip!

Starting in Fredericksburg, we will rent a car and drive to Nashville. Along the way, we plan to see the skyline drive, and will stop for lunch in Knoxville. Once we get to Nashville, we will settle into our hotel go to the Carrie Underwood concert. The next morning, we are going to go to the Grand Ole Opry, the Country Music Hall of Fame, and just explore downtown Nashville! Depending on how long that takes, we will eventually start our drive to New Orleans where our first stop is none other than Bourbon Street!! Although we’re not 100% sure what we will do there, we will definitely find a famous restaurant or two and get some gumbo — we do love our food!! After two days in New Orleans, we will then fly across the country to Las Vegas.

The best part about Vegas– Bonnie and Agnus are meeting us!!! (Below is our phone call to Bonnie and Agnus asking them to come meet us!)

In Vegas, we plan to explore the city, hang out by the pool, and most likely do a little gambling! After a day in Vegas, the 4 of us will drive over to San Diego. There, we will go to the beach, explore, and go to the Zoo. Then, the part of the trip that I am most excited for will happen. We will drive up the coast of California!! We will hit Los Angeles, Hollywood, San Francisco, and keep going till we hit Seattle. Once we get to Seattle, unfortunately, Bonnie and Agnus will fly home. 🙁 However, Jenna and I will stay there for two nights and then fly out to south Dakota where we will go to Mount Rushmore, camp, and hike.

From there, we will drive to Chicago. I have always wanted to go to Chicago so I am super excited about this stop! There, we plan to go to the Sears Tower, go to the “beach”, get some famous hotdogs, and just look around! After a couple of days in Chicago, we will then drive to Boston and see a Red Sox game and do some exploring.

Finally, we will head home…….. and it’s all over! I can’t wait for our trip!

One Last Ride for Bonnie & Agnus

We’re not riding off into the sunset JUST yet. Bonnie Sue and her best friend, Agnus have some unfinished business to tend to before they separate.

What is that, you may ask? A CROSS-COUNTRY ROAD TRIP!

They’ve already moved to Fredericksburg, Virginia together from Tombstone, Arizona — but before they go their separate ways they want to go on a big road trip together. They will travel all over the country to places they’ve never seen and they will do things they’ve never done before! Although Jenna and I are not 100% sure what exactly we will be doing as far as forms of media (we just want to wait and see what actually works), we will likely write a background story to begin or end our trip, provide audio for the sounds of our trip OR through one situation they run into along the way. We use Google Maps to show where we go on our trip. We also may use video to show a day in the life of our trip, or, like with audio, a situation we run into. The options are endless for us, and I can’t wait to see where we go with this!
