4399 mile road trip

This journey from NC to Mt was deliberately the LONG WAY. Left NC on 30 March down to Atlanta to pick up a friend, then to Lake Blackshear Ga for a night, then down to Destin Fl to Topsail State Preserve then to Delac La for a camp and a days red fishing in 35 mph wind. Then on Crystal Beach La for a night camped on the beach, dropped friend in Houston and then down to Big Bend National Park for a primitive camp site that was great. Then to Pancha Villa State Park in the corner of Texas. Then over to Phoenix, up to the Grand Canyon, then Momument Valley, Moab Ut, the Arches National Park and then to Mt.

Great trip!! How bout Shrimp Gumbo in Creole La. Now that is authentic eating. Arrived on 12th of April.

The Autohome was like a hotel away from home. It is easy and it is comfortable and it is great in wind and rain.

More pics of the trip. It is amazing to see the breath of this country we share. From the South, to the Southwest and into the desert and then into the Rockies. Wow!!

Re: 4399 mile road trip

Nice looking journey! I wish I could have seen many of those parks but when we went through last year it was when everything was shut down.
