On the Road Again – Trip Overview

After 8,116.4 miles and two & a half months on the road, we are home once again.

Two days earlier than originally planned — the smoke & triple digit heat got to us at the last stop. Throughout the trip we traveled mostly on secondary roads with very little interstate highway (sometimes there just wasn’t any other realistic option). We got to experience so many new places, meet interesting folks & have some quality family time at our turn around point in Portland, ME. And along the way we coined a new term — “Mooch Approved”. If we were to do this distance again in an RV, we would set aside 4-6 months — on this trip we had too many one night stops.
