Ever wanted to just pack your bags and see where the road takes you? Tired of looking for boring part-time jobs or summer classes? These six Ole Miss students were. Best friends Kate Sprabery, Anne Claire Dunn, Faith Roberts, Rachel Lloyd, Shelby Pellum, and Jennie Jesuit went all in on a summer of adventure.
The crew packed necessities for a 10-day trip into a Ford Expedition and were on their way. Originally planning to only go to Niagara Falls, they decided to extend their trip into most of the East Coast. Staying in “cheap and semi-sketchy” motels, the girls engaged in adventurous activities such as whale watching in Massachusetts, bike tours through Toronto, and boat tours in Niagara Falls.
Look through the girls’ photo gallery below. They made sure to rep their Rebels outside of the SEC. Hotty Toddy girls!
“The people we met and places we saw were incredible, but what I am most thankful for on this trip were the very friendships started here at Ole Miss. Road trip with your best friends; I promise you won’t regret it.” -Shelby Pellum
“Through the laughs that made my stomach hurt, carpets I didn’t know if bed bugs were on, endless karaoke and car games, and tons of Extra gum, I cannot put this trip into words. Overall I learned how fast time flies when you are really having fun. Time is short, live each day to the fullest is really what I learned.” -Jennie Jesuit
“I recommend everyone out there to take their best buds and hit the road and explore new places together. Who ever knew that us six girls could go to 15 states and two provinces all in a Ford Expedition?” -Anne Claire Dunn
“Everyone should go on a road trip with their best friends. We saw many amazing places and learned so much more about each other in just 10 days.” -Kate Sprabery
“Road tripping with my best friends was the absolute best way to end summer and kick off senior year. We planned on the go and let ourselves accept the unknown of the entire trip.” -Faith Roberts
“Do not be scared of no plans. Hop in the car and take an adventure with your besties. You will not regret it!” -Rachel Lloyd
