The trip map

Here's our crazy trip plan, via the Northern route, so we can visit Teddy Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota.  Our resident TR expert is joining us for that leg of the journey, having finagled his vacation time and frequent flier miles. Gary is happy to add North Dakota as a new state to his list of US states visited. Not too many unvisited after this trip!

  1. Ginny,
    I'm looking forward to reading more about your adventure. It should be fun.
    From you map I see that you are covering a lot of the same ground we did in 2008 - but we turned South earlier in order to see South Dakota.
    If you drive through the upper Peninsula in Michigan you can see some of the Great Lakes.
    You'll pass right by Darwin MN where the largest ball of twine made by just one man lives. The whole town has a "Ball of Twine" theme to it.
    Don't miss the cheese curds in Wisconsin. They are not very flavorful but are interesting.
    It's possible you'll see some of the motorcycles heading to or from the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. Our trip was just about the same time. We had decided we'd count the motorcycles. On one day we counted 133, but then the next day when we counted more than 3,500 we gave up.
