Two Months Today

2014 West then East, Road Trip

Today is the two month mark on our 2014 Summer Ramble. We’ve seen spacious skies, amber waves of grain, purple mountains, valleys full of lettuce, vineyards full of grapes, hazelnut groves, dinosaur bones, giant redwoods, beautiful butterflies, waves crashing onto rocks, bluegills feeding in the pond, the mighty Mississippi flowing, and thermal hot springs. We’ve sampled Louisiana crawfish pie, Texas BBQ, Egyptian gyros, Salinas vegetables, Pacific seafood, California wine, Spanish tapas, British ale, Oregonian clam chowder, Nebraskan beef, American bison, Lake Michigan trout, and Wisconsin ice cream. We’ve visited with an aunt and uncle, siblings and in-laws, in-laws’ siblings, first cousins, distant cousins, nieces, nephews, friends and strangers. We’ve camped in national forests, private campgrounds, state parks, driveways, and now a very private campground. We’ve hiked and geocached, swapped stories, done genealogical research, and plan to go dancing. We’ve experienced blistering hot desert temperatures and chilly Pacific coast weather, drought conditions, and hailstorms. We’re visited national parks and state parks, historical sites and wineries, swamps, deserts, lakes, waterfalls, rivers, ponds, and the Great Salt Lake.All while living in or teeny tiny T@B trailer. We’re not yet finished, we still have places to go and people to hug, but already we are ready to do it again!

We made it to the Top of the World, or at least the northernmost land mass in Europe, Magerøya Island. On our coach tour we learned much about the natural history and the cultures of this starkly beautiful place.
