    Hearty recommendations for places I've never been---yet!

    In early November 2017, I'm hoping to RoadTrip from North Carolina to Terlingua, Lajitas, Presidio, and pop back out to "civilization" at Marfa, TX for the long trip back home.

    What I've learned...
  2. "Dry camping" or "boondocking" in the Deep South, in August, other RV musings

    Overnighting in an RV without "hookups", meaning without electric, water, and sewer connections is generally referred to as dry camping or boondocking. As a lifelong resident of North Carolina and...
  3. Alternative route

    While I don't necessarily dislike the I-35 to Des Moines suggestion in order to keep it "all Interstate", I do suggest an alternate route to connect I-90 to I-80 including going through Casper, WY if...

    By all means, take I-84 once in Utah

    GLC is wise to point out that you may avoid SLC traffic and a rather banzai descent into SLC from Park City by turning west on I-84 at Echo Canyon where I-80 intersects it around 30 miles east of...

  7. Truckers call I-95 the Ho Chi Minh Trail for a reason

    Oh good grief!

    Nearly "death by GPS Version 1.XX", wasn't it?

    For the life of me, I can't understand why people do such foolish things. They're all fortunate to be alive.

    BRP/SD in winter

    We tend to refrain from judging levels of scenic beauty, preferring to leave those remarks to others. I personally find the BRP and the SD to be quite nice in all seasons. You can actually enjoy...

    US 93 south

    I would personally have no reservations about taking US 93 south right out of Missoula all the way to Twin Falls. It's a little twisty on both sides of the ID border and along the Salmon River from...
  12. A small tweak

  14. Montana and nearby parts of ND and SD

    Where to in WA?

    Narrowing it down, and something to avoid
