Hello again, lovely people! We are pulling the bags out of the attic and hitting the road again. Alas, not for 365 days this time, rather a nice long trip to Iceland for 18 days. Fire and Ice! Elves and Trolls! 4X4s and Nervous Passenger Braking! John and […]
The grand plan after visiting Carlsbad was to drive a little further south to our final National Park: The Carlsbad Caverns. We were all set to go, until the thing I had been avoiding for approximately 7 months of traveling through 17 different countries happened: My back went […]
A year on the road is a long time together. It was in Phoenix that we decided to split up. Not forever, just for the weekend.
Our main objective for the day was to visit the Grand Canyon, but we didn’t get out of Williams, AZ without stopping first at Bearizona (see what they did there?) for some adorable animal action.
Greetings friends, from the deserts of Nevada. We have spent the last two days in Vegas. It was fun, but as you know from your own past dalliances in Vegas, it was expensive.
After a BIG breakfast at the Owl Club (the only thing open in Eureka) we hit the highway bound for Death Valley National Park, California! We’ve now made it all the way across the USA!
At the end of the long drive from the Black Canyon, we had family waiting. My step-sister Dana and her lovely family (husband Zach and son Eli) welcomed us into their Salt Lake City home and we ate, drank, and helped out with homework. The next morning came […]
You are having a pretty awesome Sunday when you get to fit in a National Park and watch two great football games. Due to the season, the majority of the Rocky Mountain National Park is closed to vehicles, but we still found plenty to gawk at.
We left Rapid City by way of the Rapid City Dinosaur Park. Is there a better way to start the day? I think not.
Thanksgiving day was uber-awesome and action-packed. We saw two incredible monuments and a bunch of beautiful creatures. The word for the day is inspiration.
About an hour after we left our hotel, we officially made it into South Dakota. Much like Nebraska, South Dakota provides many a lonesome road to drive on through endless farmlands and hills.
We left Sioux City with new oil in Black Betty and a purse stuffed full of complimentary mini-muffins from the Ramada Inn. 270 miles ahead of us was Valentine, Nebraska, which we would reach via the Outlaw Trail.
