Who are the Roadchix?

(Fascinating Girls That We Are)

The Roadchix are a pair of friends who decided that life was too short and adventure awaited. Having met at Boston University, Kristy and Beth became fast friends. But their friendship was cemented with their first roadtrip after college graduation - a seven-week journey around the country (see How We Began for more.)

After that first trip, Roadchix were bitten by the travel bug, so every year they pick a new state to thoroughly explore. On the journey, the Roadchix try to find Roadside Attractions, factory tours, presidents' homes, historic sites, tourist traps and anything out of the ordinary or off the beaten path.

In addition to cruising the highways and byways, the Roadchix often take on new adventures such as skydiving, raising money for charity or sharing the fun with a Scavenger Hunt. You never know what they'll be into next, but it's always a guarantee that they'll be seeing a new state each year.

Kristy (Roadchick K)
Kristy and her Green TongueKristy is the web site designer of Roadchix and lives in the Washington, D.C. area. She does the initial research for each journey by scouring through the Roadchix Library of travel books. Her love of Presidents started the 'Chix on their quest to see at least one home of every president. She hopes to have a giant Roadside Attraction in her yard one day, so she can be a stop on Roadside America.



Beth (Roadchick B)

She lives in the Boulder, Colorado area (relocated from Boston where she lived in her early 'chix-days) with her husband Pete, daughter Gretchen, and dog. As a lover of maps and data, she charts the course for each Roadchix journey with the help of the trusty AAA. Her travel bug is genetic thanks to her parents who have lived from coast-to-coast and everywhere in between. Beth hopes to visit the last few states that she hasn't seen yet as well as explore more of the world. Beth also loves hiking, backpacking, skiing, snowshoeing, rock climbing, and being a Girl Scout Leader.
