Since September 2014 we’ve been brainstorming about our expedition.
We work in the service industry in coastal Alabama – with most of our income generated during the late-spring and summer months. With a year to plan & prepare, and one more tourist season to save money, we slated our journey to begin September 2015 (only 4 months away)!!!!
With a September start date we have to hold off until Spring of 2016 to travel the northern states of America. Our preliminary plan is to begin our journey in the southwest, hopefully hitting Colorado before it gets too cold and then easing around the southern pacific coast during the fall and winter months.
Some of the key locations we want to see in the southwest are: Carlsbad Caverns, Great Sand Dunes Colorado, Gunnison National Park, Arches National Park, Bryce Canyon, Zion, Horseshoe Bend, Grand Canyon, Joshua Tree, Death Valley, and many more.
We have the obvious tourist destinations covered, but we would like to pick your brains about rural communities and off-the-path spots you have discovered on your journeys.
If you have any cool ideas please share them in the comment section!
Thanks So Much,
Olivia & Kyle
