Ok, this is going to be another one of those, guy quits his job and tours North America threads. But, I'm taking my wife and my home with me.



I've got the next 10 months mapped out for our trip across North America, going to places we haven't yet been. We're typically going to be at most campgrounds for a week or two, and I'm hoping to hook up lots you all along the way.

Here's my original itinerary of where we'll be and when:

May - Townsend, TN - Nashville, TN - Land Between the Lakes, KY - St Louis, MO
June - Davenport, IA - DeMoines, IA - Minneapolis, MN - Grand Marais, MN - Medora, ND - Billings, MT - Missoula, MT
July - Deer Lake, MT - West Yellowstone, MT - Victor, ID - West Glacier, MT
August - Banff, AB - Missoula, MT - Seattle, WA - Vancouver, BC
September - Concrete, WA - Seattle, WA - Randle, WA - Estacada, OR
October - North Bend, OR - Medford, OR - Klamath, CA - San Francisco, CA - Pismo Beach, CA (maybe)
November - Reading, PA
December - Key Largo, FL
January - Naples, FL - Tampa, FL - Orlando, FL - Panama City, FL
February - Gulf Coast, TX - Big Bend NP, TX
March - Texas, New Mexico, Arizona
April - Arizona

Here's my new travel itinerary update 9/16/2007

May - Townsend, TN - Nashville, TN - Land Between the Lakes, KY - St Louis, MO
June - Davenport, IA - DeMoines, IA - Minneapolis, MN - Grand Marais, MN - Medora, ND - Billings, MT - Missoula, MT
July - Deer Lake, MT - West Yellowstone, MT - Victor, ID - West Glacier, MT
August - Banff, AB - Missoula, MT - Seattle, WA - Vancouver, BC
September - Concrete, WA - Seattle, WA - Randle, WA - Phoenix, AZ
October - Phoenix, AZ - Reading, PA -Key Largo, FL
November - Key Largo, FL - Reading, PA
December - Phoenix, AZ

Frank, buddypal!! It's a real shame we didn't get to do some more rides together before I took off. I'll be back in Eastern PA for two weeks at Thanksgiving. Perhaps we can hook up on another Barlow ride.

To answer your question, save up for six years, sell your house, live in an apartment for 4 years while you try to get rid of everything you own that won't fit in your RV, then work up the courage to follow through when the time comes. My wife and I both had great paying jobs and had been with our employers for long enough to have a decent amount of vacation every year. Part of our plan is to relocate to another part of the country, most likely Phoenix, get jobs and then start the whole cycle over again. So, if anyone is looking for a great IT guy in the Phoenix area come next April, please PM me.

I'm in Townsend, TN, right now. Went for a ride through Cades Cove last Sunday when we arrived and saw four bears!

Bear #1


Fought with the intense traffic (I thought it might not be too busy late on a Sunday, boy was I wrong) until I got to my planned exit, Rich Mountain Road.

Cades Cove from Rich Mountain Road.


A little further down the road, I found a momma bear with two cubs! I was little nervous getting off the bike to snap some pictures, but I'm sure you all understand why my hand wasn't all that steady.

Momma and one cub climbing out of a tree.


Followed a bunch of dead end roads working my way back to the campsite.

How far

How much of North America you planning on? You make it out to San Diego, and I'll hook you up with some nice roads/trails, some epic mountain biking, and some area theme parks....(I know some people)

You sure look like you're traveling in style...

I'm going to save San Diego until we get out to Phoenix, since we'll practically be neighbors. See you next year.

I've got the next 10 months mapped out for our trip across North America

If I were any more envious I wouldn't even be able to type.
Looks like you're having a great time. Thanks for sharing.

Here's an abridged itinerary of where we'll be and when:

July - Deer Lake, MT - West Yellowstone, MT - Victor, ID - West Glacier, MT
November - Reading, PA
Hey NS - We are planning to be out in West Yellowstone at the end of July, should get there about 7/28. We are also planning on riding up to Glacier NP the week of Aug 6th. Any chance that we could connect then in either Yellowstone or Glacier??

We live near Reading, PA so when you get in that area send me a PM and we'll hook up for a ride!

Have a great trip!!
