Greetings to all our friends and readers of The Collector Gene! We’re happy to report that since starting our little family website in March, we’ve been viewed in nearly every state and about fifty different countries. Now to be honest, it may only be one view in some of those places but what the heck – it’s a start.
Now we want to share a new adventure with our readers.
On September 5, Carol and Jim are hopping in the car and going on a cross country road trip. We’re leaving the younger members of our family at home to feed the cats and mow the lawn, while the old folks go “headin down the highway lookin for adventure!”
While this trip isn’t entirely about antiquing, it wouldn’t be worthy of The Collector Gene if we didn’t stop along the way to visit a local flea market or antique shop. We’ll be heading out through Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, Utah, and Nevada on our way to California. We’ll then turn around and come back through Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, West Virginia, Maryland, Delaware and finally home to New Jersey. Whew!
If you live in one of those states and can offer us a tip or two on what to see or where to find good old stuff, we’d love to hear from you.
We will be sending periodic reports from the road as we go and we hope you’ll enjoy this adventure with us.
The Collector Gene Travel-Log will be a new feature on our website, starting with this ambitious cross country venture. Every time any member of The Collector Gene family travels on the hunt for new additions to our collections we will let you know what we find and where we find it!
