Leaving Moab was hard, there was still so much we wanted to see! Guess, we'll just have to plan another trip, right? Right!! We left Moab to go to our next stop at Bear Lake, UT. We'll take day trips into Logan, UT to see where I went to college, Utah State University. I spent… Continue reading Bear Lake and Logan UT, here we come!!
How do you plan your travel days as you move from camp site to camp site?
Our last day in the Black Hills had us stopping in Deadwood and Lead. Both towns are famous for different things. You may have heard of Deadwood from the HBO series, and most of the people in that series really existed. But perhaps Deadwood is best known for Wild Bill Hickock and Jack McCall. Deadwood… Continue reading Last stop in the Black Hills – Deadwood and Lead (pronounced LEED)
Henry our jackalope is in heaven. He went out with some of his long lost buddies last night and had a grand old time. He stayed out a little too late last night and paid for it this morning. But he was excited to see his old buddies. Jackalopes don't keep track of years like… Continue reading Jackalope Herd and Custer SD in the Black Hills
We left Island Park bright and early Saturday morning (7:00 AM to be exact), gassed up and started our trip to Greybull WY where we plan to spend one night on our way to the Black Hills in SD. We've been to Yellowstone before but went toward the south end of the park and continued… Continue reading Yellowstone, Buffalo vs Bison, Greybull, WY and National Dog Day.
Yup, we're in Island Park, ID visiting a dear, dear friend from my home town in Sioux Falls, SD. Funny story, we both grew up in SD, both went to the same high school (go Washington Warriors!!!) but didn't actually meet until we were in college and living next door to each other in the… Continue reading Island Park, ID – 33 mile Main Street, Mesa Falls and a long lost friend
We're on the road again and left Liberty Lake this morning about 7:00 AM. It's always such a pretty drive going across the northern Idaho panhandle with Lake Couer D'Alene, the 4th of July Pass, Lookout Pass and driving into Montana. So far the 4th of July pass was the highest at 3049 feet… Continue reading 4th of July Pass, the Oasis Bordello and Museum, the Silver Dollar Saloon, and Butte MT. (NSFW)
We left bright and early Sunday morning at 4:55 AM to be exact, and we were on the road. 400 miles almost exactly and we got to Liberty Lake by noon. It took us seven hours to go 402 miles with one gas stop and one rest stop. Liberty Lake Regional Park is a beautiful… Continue reading Liberty Lake, WA – We’re here, we’re watching the solar eclipse and Henry will never be the same.
Where we're going, and what we're doing for the next 38-40 days or longer.
So, we are feverishly getting ready for our epic road trip, which means my "checklisting nerdiness" is in full glory (or perhaps rearing it's ugly head is a better description). I've got 4 checklists that I'm working with, and that doesn't include what I'm doing for meal planning and grocery shopping. I've got a Packing… Continue reading Making a list, checking it twice – the blessing (and the curse) of checklists
