Our Life on the Road
In the Spring of 2006, we sold our house, our truck, and a number of our
possessions. We put everything else in storage, bought a 30-foot motor home,
and hit the
road to travel around the US for a year. One of our goals was to
visit all 46 of the National Parks in the Lower 48.
In June of 2007, fourteen
months after we started, our trip ended in Rocky Mountain
National Park. We had accomplished our goal.
This was the experience of
a lifetime for us; truly something we will never forget. On the way, we
and learned that life is always full of challenges and wonderful surprises.
Throughout the trip, we used this site to share photos
from the road. We'll leave it up for awhile in the hope it will inspire others
to throw caution to the wind and follow their dreams.
Since this site has been primarily for family and friends, most people
who visit will know who we are. For the curious or the truly bored, click About
Us to learn more about us.
Many people were surprised to hear we were giving up
our jobs and our house for a year on the road. Our
more about why we did this.

we were during the trip.
At each of the major locations we visited, we put a short
write-up in the Updates section.
We had seventeen updates throughout the trip. The final update, called Trip Statistics: By the Numbers, sums everything up and gives an overview
of things like fuel costs, grocery bills, the number of campgrounds
we stayed in, and other seemingly useless information.
no website is complete without a Photo
We took over 18,000 photos, and the Gallery is just
a small sampling of what we saw.
