I was wondering if @PetitFrereArmada took a summer trip and login here to find a new trip report. So glad you took a trip out.

If timing is right, we might crosspath in many area. I took a solo trip before end of July and come back Mid Aug. I did visit Teton, Yellowstone and also in Ouray / Moab area running trail.

Did you do a trip report? Please, share the link so I can look at your pictures amd read about your trip.

This summer, I have been lucky to do 3 road trips and did a trip report for each. Each of them have been about 20 days long. The fact that I used my new Hybrid made it possible to be able to do the 3 road trips since gas was cheap with my Hybrid.

I was in your neck of the woods on the East Coast, but I just failed to notify you before I got there.

Oh well, I know we each have many more adventures planned ahead. So, I know even though the first time we met you and wife and with kids was in Banff Natiomal Park in Canada, I am sure we will still meet again someday soon on the road.

If you ever come down to Texas, please, let me know. I owe you a ribeye steak!

I only do some write up after the trip. It's posted on social media, facebook. https://www.facebook.com/campwithchin. (shameless self advertise)

I was down in Texas visiting Big Bend NP. Didn't drive through houston, but I did have some great BBQ at Round Rock, TX. I went to Salt Lick before hop onto I-10 to Fort Stockton. Love Texas and I would return for more exploration.

On a short impromptu 11 days road trip and decided to just add the trip to this one.

Places to visit;
- The largest truck stop in the US
- Mall of America
- Canada
- Mt Rushmore
- Home

I will also include pictures of stateline "Welcome To..." signs from states that I visit with ny Accord. I will not repeat signs of pictures that I already have with my Accord. I will just add new ones I visit.

By the time this road trip is done, I will say within the last 6 months, I have taken about 4 road trips now and by the end of this one, my 2020 Honda Accord Hybrid would have been through over 40 US States so far. I have put a total of over 40,000 in just over a year of owning this brand new car.
 
The truck stop has a car museum which is FREE and offers some really good looking trucks with some good history to go along with it.

There is a donation box for anybody willing to donate. You will find yourself donating after appreciating all the trucks on display.

Here are a few that I liked.






 
I am in Bloomington, IA. I saw this and wanted my Accord to experience its first "snow". This is at Buck Hill. And I flew ny drone for aerial shots.



Getting to Fargo, ND late this night. Just loved how bright this 18 wheeler truck looks at night.

I am in Canada right now. It is very cold as temperature now is -6. We have been able to visit some places and I got to order a custom case for my drone from a very reputable custom case shop called BIG DEAL Custom Cases. They made a custom Nanuk 925 case for my drone and I liked the results.

They carry a lot of Nanuk cases. I was lucky they had what I wanted. The 925 case and the strap.


Here are pictures to share. So, this is the first custom Nanuk 925 case out so far. Nanuk has not released its own yet. I will be curious to see how it compares to mine.
