As Spring is rapidly approaching, I plan on making short trips to my local National Parks and National Recreation Areas to get a feel for how the big trip will go. I will try and post dates before I go, maybe we could have a beer and share stories!
From my house to the Furnace Creek campground there are two ways to go. I have traveled both. One of them, the highlighted one, has a very large grade to go up(8%-10%) and the other one is long and lonely.
In two weeks we will be headed out to Death Valley, in the Passat or my Mother’s Xterra with the travel trailer. I’m not sure I want to tow the trailer up that steep grade. Has anyone gone this way? Do you know how hard this is on the vehicle?
I don’t want to go the long way either. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I spent the night working on a draft for my logo. I’m kinda liking it, a lot!
Well it’s Friday, raise a glass, we made it. Please, have a great weekend. Drink responsibly and we’ll catch you next week for some more posts!
Looks like you made it. Made it through the weekend to yet another work week. Don’t be so glum, you are only 5 days away from another adventure!
I know I’m excited. That is 4 days to make plans and then get out on Friday early, don’t lie, you know you try to sneak out a few minutes early.
Let’s do this!
I hopped onto NPS.gov to see how many parks were in the United States. It turns out there are 58 National Parks in the United States and the U.S. Virgin Islands. I found only 47 of those 58 to be in the lower 48 states. Thus, those are the ones I’d be able to drive to on the National Park Road Trip.
I was taking a nap one Saturday afternoon, dreaming of an epic adventure!
I was on a road trip. Going from National Park to National Park, on one continuous journey. Experiencing all that this beautiful land has to offer. When I woke up, I realized I was back on my couch, in the “real world”.
I knew then, I had to go about planning this trip. Before I forgot about it.
