1 Mom, 4 Boys and a 70 Day #Camping Road Trip. #travel #familytravel

I am sure most of you all probably remember my genius idea last year of packing up the boys in Bob the Van, and traversing across the Southwest states for 50 days last year. I mean, you couldn't miss it, it was all you found here for months, and I am so glad to have had so many of you follow us along. Well, they called me crazy for doing it last year, and they'll call me crazy again, because this year we are headed out on a 70 day camping road trip across the American Northwest! That's right, on May 9th, the boys and I will head out with Bob to cover over 8,000 miles and spend 70 days exploring some of the most amazing sights this country has to offer.

Where will be go?

LeFleurs Bluff State Park -Mississippi
Branson - Missouri (media visit stop)
Rock Creek Station State Historical Park - Nebraska
Fort Robinson State Historical Park - Nebraska
Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial and Custer State Park - South Dakota
Grand Teton National Park - Wyoming
Bruneau Dunes State Park - Idaho
Black Rock Desert - Nevada
Bodie and Yosemite National Park - California
Sacramento - California (media visit stop)
Crater Lake National Park - Oregon
Mt. Rainier - Washington
Glacier National Park - Montana
Lewis and Clark Caverns State Park - Montana
Yellowstone National Park - Wyoming
Theodore Roosevelt National Park - North Dakota
Sioux Falls - South Dakota (media visit stop for Joshua's 14th B-day)
Walnut Woods State Park - Iowa
St. Louis - Missouri (media visit stop)
Fort Boonesborough State Park - Kentucky
Grafton - West Virginia (family reunion)

If the beauty and history we discover is anything like it was last year, our travels should prove to be well worth the time we put into planning them. This year, I will be gathering information on our trip to complete a guidebook on completing a road trip of the Northwest with children, and I am pretty excited about it.

  11. Tammy, are you trying to move away from us? We were in North Texas last year at Caprock Canyon LOL. We do not have an immediate plan to head back to the Southwest as of now, but you never know where the wind might blow is. Last year we did the Southwest though, so this year is the Northwest and then we plan to spend two year on the Midwest and East coast. After that, I promised the boys a trip to Hawaii and Alaska when we finished the contiguous United States. :)
