Trip Report The Great North American Road Trip

Jump to last reply

Can I post a trip report before the trip has been taken? This is more like a preview of coming attractions. At the end of the week, we are heading off on the Great North American Road Trip. A workshop in Toronto will be followed by a run to Detroit, and then 2 months of travel south, west, and then north and east...some of it planned, some not; some old favorites (Big Sur, Lake Louise) and some new explorations (Santa Barbara, Portland).

Ground Rules:
1. Maximize time in national parks and focus on good hiking options
2. Minimum one hour of exercise a day
3. Order wine by the glass, not the bottle, and split sandwiches
4. Spend no more than four hours a day in the car.

I tried to have a “no hamburger” ground rule, but I couldn’t muster the votes.

DH and I both love to travel, but have been restricted to 2, or very occasionally 3 week blocks, always with work looming in the background. This trip is different – nothing pulling us back. It has been challenging to pack for two months, three seasons, settings rural and urban and a real mix of activities...but now it is (mostly) done and I am getting pretty excited. Come along for the ride!
