Remember when we drove our aged Subaru across the country at the end of last summer? Well, folks: we're gearing up for round TWO. The Subes has been patiently waiting in Mom and Dad's Virginia driveway for 5 months and we hear she's been racing around the neighborhood recently, eager in anticipation for the ride home to Portland.
This time around, we'll have a traveling partner:

We'll be taking a southern route, hitting Chapel Hill, Charlotte, Charleston, Atlanta, Nashville, Austin, Albuquerque ($10 bucks for who ever can type that in under 3 seconds), Phoenix, San Diego, and Los Angeles, and the up the coast to Portland. Crazy, right?!
Any tips on great shops in these cities that a Portland jewelry designer would crush on? Any cities we're not hitting that we should? Where should we eat (besides out of our cooler)?
