Mapping Our Trip


Leaving from Maryland, we are heading north to Niagara Falls and Canada, dipping down into the Upper Peninsula and a little of the midwest before we make our way across South Dakota, Wyoming, up into Montana and over to Washington. From there, we’re headed down through Oregon and California, over into Nevada and Utah, and then spending the winter months in Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. We will head across the South in the springtime and then up the coast all the way to Cape Cod, where we will spend our last month before returning home. We estimate we’ll travel 13,000 miles and hopefully return with countless tales to tell. If you know of great places to visit (or avoid!), please let us know.

    Awesome – Nice start in NF! And can’t go wrong with the UP (doubt you’re planning on Copper Harbor there… all the way at the tippy top/end of the “thumb,” but it’s well worth it if you are!) Safe travels!

    It is hard to believe i am saying this but you have to go to the upper penisula of Michigan, on the Lake. It is gorgeous. Go to Makinaw Island for sure but even if you can go to Sagatauk and that area. Amazing long summer days and great weather.

    looks amazing even if no stop in LA…. looks like you’re at least driving through minnesota… if you’re going through the twin cities, think about stopping at the Science Museum of Minnesota…. very very cool science museum w/ a ton of hands-on for the kids (in all of you). my friend ana is in charge of the human body section.

    Valley of Fire outside of Las Vegas might be one of the most beautiful I’ve ever been too! If you stop near Vegas, stop here! In Star Trek Generations, the death of Captain Kirk was filmed here.
