USA 6 Month Roads Trip -first quarter
USA Road trip –the ultimate 6 month journey.
Almost every American and many people from other countries would love to do a really big road trip around the USA. Few ever actually do it. The reasons are manifold; cost, time and simply the decision to get up and go, leave it in the wish list area of our lives. When Audrey and I decided to do it many thought we were mad. We are not well off, but having the time after we finally retired. So we decided to do it anyway.
We are now well into the trip and with help from our good friends the Goin’s in Woodward, Oklahoma we have managed to complete the first quarter of the trip. We have travelled from Oklahoma to Kansas, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, California, Oregon and Washington State in our 20 year old Ford Econoline named Matilda.
We have already visited the Cheyenne Bottoms, the Arches National Park and other stunning places along the way. We have been amazed by the grandeur of the Sierra Nevada and the Redwoods, the beauty of Lake Tahoe and the breathtaking scenery of the California and Oregon Coast. The mountains and forests, rivers and birds have kept our cameras clicking and we have really only started. We have swum and fished in rivers and sea and have only met kind and helpful people.
Tomorrow we travel on to the city of Seattle and the NW corner of this beautiful country and soon we will be making our way towards the NE corner, pausing on the way to see the leaf changes in New England and the majesty of Niagara Falls. So far we have not been disappointed in any way. We have recorded our journey so far and we will continue to do so and invite you to come with us, that is if you have the time!
