Part of our road trip (and every trip we take, really) will be spent searching for ruins to explore. There's not much more exciting than walking into an abandoned house not knowing what treasures lie before you... peeling paint and wallpaper! Kitchens still stocked with old jars! Closets full of vintage clothes! OK, maybe I'm dreaming a bit with that last part. If we stumble across anything even half as wonderful as the abandoned homes found in heinrick05's Flickr stream I'll think I've died and gone to heaven.
