We’ve returned from our roundtrip journey across the country and the one regret we have is not being able to spend more time in each location.
The people, attractions and natural wonders were absolutely incredible, but the cast and crew, much to our chagrin, were under a tremendous amount of pressure to push on each day before we would otherwise be ready. We stayed as long as we absolutely could to soak up the atmosphere and try to capture the essences of all these incredible places, amd the realities of working with a limited budget, and in turn time were daunting.
7029 miles in 24 days is quite a bit to accomplish. The hosts held up and drove every single mile through sore muscles, wind, rain, and scorching temperatures.

We will be sharing information in the coming weeks about all the great places we visited. Each is worth a visit if you find yourself in the area. We couldn’t enjoy the amenities of many of these places, but hopefully once you see what they have to offer you will find the time to go out and visit.
