To say the first half of our trip has been fun would be an understatement. The lengthy planning has paid off and we have really enjoyed the journey thus far. It has not been without it’s trials and tribulations but nothing that has diminished the enjoyment. We head back to Seattle to continue the 2nd half and look forward to seeing several National Parks and 4 new states assuming we can dodge the wildfires and abundance of tourists. Our trip back home to visit family and friends has been a great diversion from the life on the road.
