Your trip here in the States is surely a wonderful example, that there are lots of educational, fun and entertaining places (for we Americans) to visit right here at home.
I have traveled a lot and to many places with an invalid husband, and we saw lots of National Parks and small ethnic communities. I now travel alone and do most of it in a small Volvo (the driving lights are always on - you can't turn them off). My trips are shorter now, but I love driving to the many interesting places to visit here in the Midwest.
My family gathers at Thanksgiving in Colorado to ski and that is a nice drive across Iowa and Nevada -- to see how agriculture has improved through the years.
Thanks for an interesting website. I'll check in every so often and read about the different road trips.
