See all of them below — enjoy.
LOL — careful, Jan, my SILs run in powerful circles! 🙂
Glad you’re back on the road. Go, Nissan, go!
Made it all the way to Spokane! So far, so good…
Curious here, if you have been thru California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho & now Montana, what is the #6 State?
NV: Went to Reno after Tahoe en route to Lassen.
Hope you had one – or a couple – for me!
I enjoy your pictures and comentary. Good going. At St. Mary, MT you are about thirty miles from where your grandfather was born, and about twenty miles, Chief Mountain where your great Grandfather cut trees, logs, to build his first house. He cut the trees in the summmer, then went up in the winter with a sled to take them to his homestead site.
JDK, I gotta come back to the area again. I’d like to get up to Cardston next time (failed this time).
Welcome to Yellowstone!
It seems like you are having fun.
Check out the airport in Greybull, WY as you go thru…
Guess your new itinerary doesn’t have you coming anywhere near the CO front range. Bummer–would have provided you a place to stay.
JDK: Ended up going the other route (14-Alt rather than 14), so missed Greybull. Am staying in Sheridan now, but it looks like Hawkins & Powers got liquidated some time in the last four years or so.
DON’T SKIP GETTYSBURG
Sorry, probably skipping it. Because: (1) I’ve been there before; (2) I’ll probably be going to several other Civil War battlefields; and (3) the Civil War’s the biggest tragedy in American history, so I’m not really that into it anyway.
Try Harpers Ferry, WV
Skipped TR NP in western ND, I see. Alas, the animals are incredible, but teh landscape is a hybrid between canyonlands and badlands. Of course, since TR doesn’t belong in the same living room as GW and TJ, perhaps it is an intentional snub. Enjoy the home of the Lakers.
?! Nope. Was there yesterday. Camped there last night. Poked around there this morning. Then left.
Unless you show a picture of an elk or a wild mustang, I cannot believe you were there. I saw my onloy wild porcupine there, too.
The amazing thing is that all the animals are see-able from the car.
I have seen the photo; Now I believe you were at TRNP.
I just want Craig Dunn’s name off the top of the list.
But you have to respect his bold willingness to go real-name (or *is* it a real name?!).
i see you caught some walleye. nice one – what did u catch it on?
Caught two of them, both on the same lure — a crayfish-colored Rapala. The guys at the bait shop sold me a lot of stuff, but it was the only one that caught anything.
It was great to see you in Dearborn. I mean it when I say that you are more than welcome to stay here if/when you are on your way back through. It’d be great to see you again. Have fun on the rest of your trip!
Had a great time with y’all as well. Probably not coming back through MI on this trip, but hopefully will end up in your neighborhood again sometime soon.
Are you sure you can’t find some way to come to the front range instead of Durango? (LOL, know it’s completely out of your way). Would have loved the chance to see you!
Mal sehen was wird. Right now doesn’t look likely, but that’ll be getting toward the end of the trip, so who knows where my mind will be at that point?
I see what you mean about the Cliff Huxtable sweaters! The pictures are beautiful. Loving the leaves.
Whether you listen to conference or not, as long sa you do not pray to the trees or valleys of National Parks, you are way ahead of Geoffrey Burns documentary persons.
But the trees are such good listeners…!
Geoffrey?? Did you notice Stegner’s input?
I really meant “George.” I always confuse entertainers.
I hope Gracie didn’t notice!
Your pictures get better and better. Must be all the hamburgers.
I think the burgers provide focus. (Thx!)
Your comments on the USMC are outstanding, and are admired. You are right on.
Kill Devil Hills, NC, USA — killer place name. [12:20 AM EDT on 10/12] Who were the original devils?
All’s well here — except for the dismal rain — must be Fall in WA!
will you do me a favor and please find out which state people are talking about when they say ‘carolina’. i also know multiple songs with references to carolina.
Hi Brian: I just wanted to let you know that I’m with you every step of the way and lovin’ it (dropping the “g” is a southern kinda thang).
The regaetons love Carolina.
Hey RS, good hearing from you as always. Chad, I’m pretty sure they’re referring to the mythical “Carolina”, that lies deep within the heart of every man (and some women).
Hi Brian – keeping track of you every once in a while. Looks like an AMAZING trip. Don’t sweat grad school apps – you’re smart enough, buddy! Enjoy life on the road and be safe.
Wife and I are planning a 3 week road trip for our first vacation in 5 years.
SO GLAD that I found this site in my planning.
I’ll be reading every word on here.
am i missing something here? i still dont get it.
Just fwiw, you’re probably not missing anything.
The Cafe Du Mont was recommended in Old Orleans. Across from the levee, in the French quarter, near Andrew Jackons Square in the Garden district (my notes reflect some directions like that). Recommendation from my Texas litigator.
Ended up getting a shrimp po-boy at some tavern — was pretty good (but wasn’t in the French Quarter)!
bk, you’re scaring me, turn east, don’t miss Colorado. The Durango loop to the four corners from Farmington NM is really retty.
