Started reading your adventures about three weeks ago. An excellent read, hard to put it down. I finally got caught up last night, so imagine my pleasant surprise to log on and find your latest postings this morning ��!
Very well told, with beautiful pictures of this great country.
Already looking forward to the next chapter, keep up the great work!
I am sure it feels good to be on home turf.
Thanks for taking us along,looking forward to future travels.
I have been following along from the start as well. I'm still really enjoying this. You find interesting places and obscure facts about places that make me want to visit them. The details are concise and enough to tease me into wanting to go without getting boring. I hope to join you on the open road soon. You are my role model for traveling. My mom used to say "It is not what you have, it is whay you do with what you have" You certainlly do a lot more then 99% of the people out there with ultra high end campers.
I haven't posted on here for over a year, but I've always enjoyed following this thread. Thank you so much for taking the time to make us all jealous.
Thanks Again for taking the time for this update. I've been following along from the beginning.
We all will be waiting until you're back on the road, in the meantime enjoy your time with friends and family
What I value most of all about your updates is your focus on the journey and not the "rig." The experiences we have, the people we meet, and the things we learn are the real reasons we explore. I really appreciate your priorities!
Cbryder, chet, chuppie, crazy joker, Heading out, Smoky, mtnbike28, mdmead; Thank you all for the nice comments and for following along!THIS!
There are a lot of cool rigs (and builds under construction) here on Expo and I'm subscribed to a few. But the bottom line is all you need is a reliable 2wd (not even an AWD!) rig and maybe a low-cost dualsport to enjoy an EPIC adventure.
And also hot and humid! Only in the Midwest can you have a day in the low 90s with a heat index of 116! The green is beautiful though.Look at that last picture, that's what I miss the most about the Midwest, every thing is green in the spring and summer.
I love US Routes. US RT 20 runs through where I grew up east of Cleveland Ohio. I cruised back and forth on that road for years, but never going any further than Cleveland and Geneva Ohio. As I got older and became fascinated with road trips, I started to look and see where these US Routes could take me. If I kept going west passed Cleveland on RT 20, I could end up at the Yellow Stone National Park. People travel back and forth on a small section of these great US Routes, and don't realize the great places they can take them.
Yes I believe Rt 20 is the longest road in the US and also goes by the town where I grew up, Valparaiso, Indiana as does Rt 30 which was the original coast to coast route that we knew as the Lincoln Highway. In fact the main street in Valpo is called Lincolnway.
The old US Routes have so much more to see along the way. I lived near US 20 for many years and I’ve traveled many bits and pieces of it, so it was fun to cross the country mostly on the one highway. There are other great routes that would be fun to travel across the country, like US 50 and of course the old Rt 66.I took the same route along Hwy 20 through Oregon into Idaho before visiting Craters of the Moon and Yellowstone. I even spent the night in Parma as well. lol. I'm really enjoying remembering that trip while following along here. Thanks for the continued updates, stay safe!
Thanks justbecause! I have a new app on the iPad that has very complete listings of the city and county parks. It’s called Ultimate Campground Guide and it shows all public camping on a map with color-coded icons for city, county, state, and all the different types of federal campgrounds. Many of the city and county parks are free.awesome trip. I am really envious.
How did you find city/local parks to camp in? Is there a database or did you just google the towns you were passing through? Paper information at rest areas?
One of these times I’m going to be in the area, not early or late when the snow is flying, but in the peak season, and actually get to enjoy all there is to see. I will definitely remember to contact you when that happens.I finally got caught up Kenny. Wish we could of met when you came through Reno on 395 I could of pointed you in some really cool journeys and camping spots up along 395. The Steen Mts are amazing wow thanks for the pics! I was looking at them from HWY 95 headed to Boise earlier this summer and they looked like a really cool place way off in the distance! Will need to head up there to explore!
Whats the plan now for this fall and winter?
