Some of you already know that weâ€™ll be doing a roadtrip through the US this summer. Starting this July weâ€™ll be traveling in our â€™95 Roadtrek between many national parks, cities and other more or less random points of interest which we have selected over the last year. We have planned to travel for â€œabout four monthsâ€ with some fixed points and a lot of flexibility in our plans, but we do expect the trip to be about 13,000 miles / 21.000 km (or maybe 1000 gallons or 3800 liter of gas â€“ you can pick your fuel price, but currently the US average price for a gallon of regular is $4.07).
We selected the point of interest by taking out a map of the US and started to make red crosses where we wanted to see things. This was interesting, and while we sure can see a lot in four months, it was still a too much to just go and see!! Most notable [for Martin] we dropped Alaska and Glaciers National Park as that would have been a lot more driving and even in four months you cannot see it all.
Â We narrowed down the list to:
Supai Â· Grand Canyon Â· Zion Â· Bryce Â· Capitol Reef Â· Mesa Verde Â· Black Canyon Â· Great Sand Dunes Â· Pikeâ€™s Peek Â· Denver Â· Rocky Mountain Â· Grand Teaton Â· Yellowstone Â· Mt. Rushmore Â· Des Moins Â· Chicago Â· Cleveland Â· Niagara Falls Â· Boston Â·Cape Cod Â· New York Â· Washington DC Â· Blue Ridge Parkway Â· Charleston Â· Savannah Â· Miami Â· Key West Â· Biscayne Â· Everglades Â· Disney World Â· Panama City Â· New Orleans Â· Austin Â· Big Bend Â· White Sands Â· Saguaro
