Since our last update we’ve traveled another 3,500 miles and the list continues:
14. Moab, Utah to visit Arches National Park and the surrounding areas
15. Canyonlands National Park, Utah to visit Canyonlands and Dead Horse State Park
16. Maher, CO to visit Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park
17. Boulder, CO to visit family and a few breweries
18. Estes Park, CO – Moraine Campground to visit the eastern side of Rocky Mountain National Park
19. Grand County, CO – Stillwater Campground to visit the western side of Rocky Mountain National Park
20. Topeka, KS to break up our drive home and to visit the Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site
21. Lexington, KY because when are we ever going to be in Lexington, KY again?
22. Sarasota, FL because we were on our way back to Virginia and then decided we weren’t ready for cold weather yet.
During our U.S. road-trip, we slept in 22 different locations and saw many places in-between. We have another 1,000 miles left to go in order to get home to Virginia, making our entire U.S. road-trip 8,500 miles in total. After doing a few calculations, we discovered we’ve driven 60% LESS in this “year of travel” than in a typical work year but have seen so much more.
