#atozchallenge #roadtrip - Stormy sails the Road Trip seas!

My love is in league with the freeway
Its passion will ride, as the cities fly by
And the tail-lights dissolve, in the coming of night
And the questions in thousands take flight

(Big Log - Robert Plant)

Welcome to leg five of the Post A-to-Z Road Trip!

Stormy the Weather Gnome and I are going to try to hit at least 20 new blogs a week from the Challenge list and tell you about a few of them in each of my posts.

When you go visit these awesome blogs, please make sure you tell them that you're visiting on the Post A to Z Road Trip!

Damyanti Biswas - Amlokiblogs

Co-host extraordinaire Damyanti's April theme?
Quotes from Authors and Bookish People about Writing.

So many inspirational quotes and brilliant advice from great people that we all admire. Complete win!

And it's you once again
Leading me on - leading me down the road
Driving beyond - driving me down the road

Smurfin' The Web Movie Reviews & Other Stuff 

Smurfin' The Web chose some of their favourite movies of all time and gave a movie review for every letter of the alphabet, like...Hot Fuzz, Platoon, and The Usual Suspects!

Julie Flanders

How much fun is this? Julie shows us around Martha's Vineyard with her 26 letters for April with some great pictures and cool facts!

Sensing too well when the journey is done
There is no turning back - no
There is no turning back - on the run

Carrie-Anne - Onomastics Outside the Box

Her theme was invented names which were so popular in the early decades of the Soviet Union. Some of these names are really epic and her blog is full of all kinds of great names, not just Russian. Great for the writer's out there!

Katie - The Cyborg Mom

How to Keep Busy While Recovering was one of my favorite themes. Katie has some shitty bones (Bad ankle, bad!) and she has spent her fair share of time immobile. She lists 26 great ways to keep from going INSANE while healing and she's got a great sense of humor while she does it. 

Thanks for visiting with us today!

  1. What a nice roundup of cool themes from the challenge! I'm proud to see my partner in crime Smurfin' the Web's blog up there among the picks :)
    I'm still calculating the number of movies he reviewed that I've watched versus those he highlighted that missed my radar.

    The "invented names" theme and Katie's recovery one are both also interesting and help the challenge continue to thrive as a mixed bag of fun for everyone involved.

    The Madlab Post

  2. I have been taking a vacation from the road trip for weeks, and this post has reminded me that it is high time I resumed my trip.

  4. Thanks again for the mention Heather! I've been slacking on my road-tripping! Maybe once the craziness of summer has settled down a bit I can get back on the road :)

    Funny enough, I think I may have found my theme for next years challenge. Now, just need to work on the "Q" post...hmmmm...

    Visual Proof
