At 90 days and 12,270 miles across the US, this turned out to be the longest road trip we've ever embarked on. As summer now winds down and we prepare to (hopefully) resume roaming internationally, this post touches on our potential upcoming plans after recapping this summer odyssey across the US.
This blog goes on to discuss the challenges and limitations that helped shape our big US road trip while also revealing each our favorite places!
If you share similar travel interests as us, perhaps the spots we most enjoyed will provide you with some travel inspiration or ideas of places to roam within the US.
Having hiked 408 miles while visiting 43 NPS sites, we've awarded what we thought were the best hikes and best national parks. Yet be forewarned, it's a bit of a lengthy post. So you may need to crack open a cold one by the time you get to our favorite of the 49 local breweries we managed to visit along this journey. 🤣
Wow, quite an epic journey and encapsulation! I just scanned it and was happy to see my hometown as an honorable mention along with kudos to the Blanco Cafe! Let us know when you three want to over winter on a houseboat in NL 😃
I was so happy to see your post pop up today. I’ve missed reading of your adventures. I look forward to the blog post. Hoping all 3 of you are well.
Missed reading about your travels! Will be digging in today!
Just curious, is there a reason you skipped the Midwest? There are actually many things to do all over the Midwest. Wisconsin Dells, Lake of the Ozarks, Michigan Dunes, Arkansas, Kansas City, MO etc. just curious cuz it looks like you travelled around the perimeter of the US.
Maybe an RV is in your future..
Have you been posting? Haven’t seen anything for awhile.
What a wonderful and well written article of a fantastic road trip! Breweries and National Parts, what else is there? Oh yes, Historic Sites and Quaint Towns! Thank you for taking us along , like we were there with you....
You missed the Oregon Coast. Darn shame.
Hi team! I'm hoping to be a nomad for the first half of next year - South America and Europe (if I can). Let's see if we cross paths again :)
It’s not always easy to know what’s the best travel gear to pack, whether packing for a short vacation or for long-term world travel. Yet after traveling around the world for 6 years to 100 countries, we’ve developed what we’ve found to be the best travel packing checklist for value and […]
“All aboard!” 🚂 After stepping onto the Amtrak Empire Builder, we soon found out the crew really does belt out an “all aboard” call as the train is departing. For us, that holler from deep in the lungs proved to be a most appropriate welcome as we boarded those shiny […]

March 2020 brought upon unprecedented time for travelers. Borders closed. Countries locked down. Flights ceased. Cruises paused service. World landmarks closed, from the Taj Mahal to the Colosseum to Machu Picchu. Travel became an impossibility across the globe.

We’ve been keeping a little secret during this most recent trip around the world. There’s been a stowaway onboard with us during the past five months. It comes with great joy and happiness to formally announce that we have a new addition joining the Roaming Around the World team! Yes, […]
